      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!

Any snow on the approach to the Liberty Bell Group (e.g. SEWS South Face, Becky Route...)?  How about the trek out to Kangaroo Temple?  How about bugs?  Just looking for a little beta.

Just came back from there.  Tons of bugs in the parking lots and on the approach.  None once at the rocks.  (Did both Kangaroo Temple and Liberty Bell,)  No snow at all on any approach.  Snow level is pretty sad.

blue lake TH has that pond that harbors breeding of bugs but after a couple minutes walking, you are beyond those little bastards reach.  We did not see any bugs up at the rocks but I have been assaulted badly before up high.   It is rare but there is some kind of special combination that lets them live up high but not right now.


no snow on approach o any of the bells or spires.  there is a couple snow patches that some desperate TAY gals were making turns on this last weekend.  (like they make 5 turns in one patch)  that is dedication.
