      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!

Partner for Rainier July 18-23 ? (or Hood, Olympus, Adams, Jefferson, Baker...)

Recommended Posts

Dear All, 

How partnering for Mt Rainier during July 18/9 - July 23 ?   Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Olympus, Baker .... - or any more interesting peak between near Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. 

I'm from Europe, nowadays based in Oxford UK,  visiting OHSU in Portland for business on July 17/18.  Unfortunately I don't know any mountaineers in Pacific North West, so keen to team up !  I am comfortable to lead such climbs technically,  with a reliable partner, but unfortunately won't have much time to do research for routes/maps.  

I'm experienced in both alpine and ski mountaineering, having done 40+ high altitude peaks of comparable/higher technical difficulty than Rainier between 14,000 and 24,000 feet, and practice crevasse and avalanche rescue almost every year.  Member of Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ).  Good endurance - I have done up to 20 hour mountain routes and up to 16,000 uphill feet in one long day. Not as fit at the moment,  but 7,000 feet uphill/day is still fine. 

Thanks, 

Vaclav

I'm flying in from Minnesota and heading to Rainier Thursday July 18th.  Looking for a partner.  I'm flexible to do DC route on Rainier or Emmons.  Have previous glacier travel experience and am fit but will need to review crevasse safety (I use prusik self rescue).
