      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Sky Pilot w kids = question

Recommended Posts

Heading North for a few days and thinking about taking one or more of our teen kids up W Ridge of Sky Pilot. Can anyone comment on the conditions of the Stadium glacier?  Crampons and ax essential? Rope? Moat issues? Seriously crevassed? Can these be easily skirted?

Any info would be helpful. Thinking of approach and deproach via gondola.

Thx much

crampons and axe for sure

otherwise just follow the beaten in trail

rope? can they downclimb 40 m of exposed 4th class without you worrying? then no. otherwise yes. take a randonee rope and do the downclimb yourself after lowering them.
