      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!

Trip Date: 01/09/2021

Trip Report:


We climbed Reid HW yesterday.  Taking the longer 8a variation.  CURRENT ROUTE CONDITIONS: Deep snow from IR over to the base of the route with a bit of snow swimming as you approach the base of the route.  Most of the ice steps/ramps consist of hollow ice right now and are much shorter than normal.  We did manage to find one steep 60-70M AI3 full value rime/hollow ice pitch.  This could be avoided by going farther left up a short ramp.  Overall the route right now is mainly steep deep snow, hollow ice and good old MT. Hood rime.  

Gear Notes:
Two tools

Approach Notes:
IR and over to route
