      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!

Last minute partner for Chair Peak tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Looking for a last minute partner for Chair Peak tomorrow, 12/8/2018.  This will be my 21st ascent of the peak, I try to do it every year as a season opener.  I can provide the rope/rack/4WD car.  I would like to leave Issaquah at 5:00 AM or meet up at North Bend around that time. 

All experience levels welcome.  If you are experienced, we can try for the second winter ascent of the West Ridge, or if you are new, we can run up the NEB, which can be climbed in many conditions.  If the East Face by some miracle looks like it is in shape, I would consider that as well.  I'll be on snow shoes, I have pair to lend.  If interested, please text me at (206) 276-8991.

Was up in Source Lake area last weekend, and it's been clear since then (no new snow). I don't think you'll encounter enough snow to warrant snowshoes, but we didn't get too high. People had been approaching both via Alpental base and the Snow Lake trail. There is a good boot track going up close to the NEB base. Can't speak for the upper portions of it, but we saw a group of 14 (!!!) heading up there on Sunday.  YMMV

Thanks Rad.  I was up above Source Lake last Saturday with snow shoes.  Good to know there is a boot track now.
