      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!

How are the bugs on the ptarmigan?

Recommended Posts

Going to do the PT in early August and wondering if I can get away without a full tent. Planning on staying at ying yang and cub lakes for what it’s worth. 
 

thanks!

Just did a trip with similar attributes: relatively high ridge running (wind); camping at high lakes; north cascades. Didn't really mind the bugs most of the time, but glad I had a meshed tent to chill in the evening. Could you get by without? sure. Is it worth the weight drop? I doubt it.

You might consider how much of the night you anticipate being "out" of your sleeping bag... i was pretty warm at night even at 6800.

I used to be tough. 
 

Exactly what I needed to know. We’ll be bringing the mesh!
