      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!

[TR] Arrowhead Mountain - West "face" 03/01/2020

Trip: Arrowhead Mountain - West "face"

Trip Date: 03/01/2020

Trip Report:

 

Rang in the new month with a trip up Arrowhead Mountain. Mostly sunny in the morning, good views from the saddle (wow, Chiwakums!), but things turned to breezy opaque gray in the afternoon. Thank you for the kind souls who put in the skin track for 80% of things! Ended up booting the last 20 minutes or so on the ridge. No views at the summit, unfortunately, but yipees and yahoos were heard as we surfed through blower pow on a supportable crust. 

 

 

Going up....

This was easier than the alternative... in that moment... I think?!

It was a good day.

Gear Notes:
Normal things, perhaps a whippet and ski pons would be wise next time....

Approach Notes:
Park at the maintenance shed and use the road... otherwise, you are doomed to schwack for at least a bit!
