      Thanks for visiting Cascadeclimbers.com.   Yep, we are still going!    Just put a new coat of paint on the site. Still the same old community of climbers, skiers, and people who love to get outdoors. Hope you had a great 2021, and wish you the best for 2022 and beyond.  Thanks again for stopping by.

Snowpack in cascades: late June

Recommended Posts


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!

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.
