      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!

Eliot Glacier Ice

Recommended Posts

Went up this weekend 11/3  to check out the drips on the Eliot glacier.  A few of the climbs are kind of in.  The climbable ones are super wet.  The north gully also looks like it's pretty close to being in.IMG_3841.thumb.jpg.2e1e8fb3d770dee62ecc1680cd392c3b.jpg

How far were you able to drive up Cloudcap Road?

thanks

As of a week ago the road was completely open to the inn with no snow.

The gate was closed when I went up to check things out today. Weird, as the upper road is clearly drivable. Bit of a bummer, as we had a mandatory later start time and the extra hiking killed our chance to put tool to ice.

Ah well, still a lovely hike, and it was nice to be up there in the white stuff again.

What is the beta on these climbs? Is the approach (minus the road closure) straight forward?
