      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!

Snowpack in cascades: late June

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Friends,

I climbed in Cascades a fair amount but always in the end of August. How will climbing be in the second half of June? Will routes be dry or will they still be covered in snow/ice (ledges, cracks, etc...)? How will approaches look like? I am particularly interested in routes in Liberty Bell/Washington Pass and Leavenworth based. Will all roads be opened by mid June?

Thanks a lot!

Boris.

WA pass approaches will be on snow. Bring boots or GTX approach shoes and light crampons for any steep/exposed approaches. Probably a light axe too, though if you are comfortable you can always do the rock trick ;)... gloves should be obvious, and a spare pair of socks in the pack.
