      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Kautz Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Fellow climbers!  Has anybody recently got on the Kautz route on Rainier?  I climbed the Fuhrer Finger a couple weeks ago, and on our way up, there were plenty of folks who were shooting for the Kautz coming down because they heard that it was no good.  I also heard from several IMG guides that it was no good.  Unfortunately, none of these people had actually seen the would-be uncrossable obstacle in person.

I did give the rangers a phone call asking about conditions, and they said that things were normal up there though.  I'm yet to see a trip report here or a route tick on Mountain Project, so I am not quite sure what to believe..

Any good info would be much appreciated!  I'm hoping to go up there this upcoming weekend.
