      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   12/08/21

      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.

PHOTO OF THE DAY!

Recommended Posts

Nice guys!  I was up on Orcas celebrating my parents 50th anniversary, but I certainly would have liked to be up in the hills!  It has been a very slow fall for me.  Is that a recent photo @kmfoerster?

And yes @Phil K, that WAS a great trip! Here is the South Twin from a slide I took on that trip....

Congrats to them! Nope thats from the NW couloir trip in 2019. Maybe my favorite sunset I've witnessed/captured. Perfect, calm, clear early November evening.

visiting for the daily dose, noticed nobody chimed in on this one: is that Klawatti et al. taken from Primus or Tricouni? Nice pic!

...and, that's the 505 couloir on the left, eh?  This pic brings back fond memories from a stellar week at the Putnam hut...

Mount Tasman from high on Aoraki.....from the honeymoon that nearly killed both of us as our marriage began!

Everybody needs to get married and travel to New Zealand! My wife on Zurbriggen's Ridge in December of 2002.  We were pretty sure we were going to survive at this point, but there were some tense moments (and tears) on the ice face below. I distinctly remember looking down between my frontpoints, the rope connecting us with nothing in between, and yelling "YOU MUST NOT FALL!!" :skull: .....Till death do us part:

Aoraki is a worthy mountain to throw yourself at.  It will take a bit from you, however:

Perhaps you've sampled the "splitter" stone of Custer? If not,  here's a teaser:

Sweet!  Ever since doing Larrabee and American Border Peak last summer, I have been asking myself "where can I find more of that?"

Yes, yes indeed @Phil K.  And, to that end, sunrise from West McMillan!
