      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!

[TR] Mt Redoubt - NE Face 06/02/2019

Trip: Mt Redoubt - NE Face

Trip Date: 06/02/2019

Trip Report:

We had a chill day into base camp on Friday, the trail brings you all the way to the basin, however is hard to follow at times (and hard bushwacking at times with A frame ski carry). As other reports mention there is a water fall that will get you quite wet on the approach (bring dry socks!). Near the waterfall and above there were some carins you can follow they will take you towards the Lake and the start to the South ridge, so once in the open we veered off the " carin "trail" to  camp. Instead of camping in the moraine (as most beta seems to suggest) we opted to camp a bit lower closer to the river so we would easily be able to pick up overnight gear on our way out. We woke up around 4:00 and skirted towards the moraine and then up to the base of the NE face. The Face was mostly fun hard snow but near the top it was a bit soft. We then headed onto the rock for some interesting climbing in ski boots! Next we climbed steep snow to the saddle just to the right of the summit, this was quite mushy. We left gear at the saddle but it may be wise to bring with you as we found what looked like the rap line for the South route close to the summit. we then however down climbed back to our packs and skis, with one easy rap we were into down-climbable steep snow and then into some mushy skiing out of the couloir. We followed the south ridge route all the way back to our overnight gear skiing almost all the way to bivy spot. We then started back to our car getting to it around midnight.
