      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!

Blodgett Canyon

Recommended Posts

I'm considering a trip to Lolo Pass this weekend and wanted to know if anyone had any information regarding recent ice conditions in Blodgett Canyon, Montana (especially Blodgett Falls).

I realize most conversation on this site centers around Washington State, but thought I'd ask if anyone knew anything about conditions in the "Inland Northwest." Thanks very much for any responses.

Wow, word gets out quickly through the climbing grapevine . . .

And thanks very much for the rapid response!

Yes, I am part of the WSU Alpine Club. Some of our folks (probably just a couple, if any) MAY be heading to the Slab area on Saturday, though it sounds like the main falls is in poor condition. I don't think I'll go, however, as I've climbed on the Slabs before and was hoping to have a go at Blodgett Falls. Maybe I'll just go skiing....or head to the hot springs instead.

Was in Blodgett Sat (20th). Swan Slabs is in great shape. Blodgett Falls however is on its way out. It is South facing and is getting to much sun. Daytime temps have been in the 30s and sometimes low 40s. Night time still below freezing though.

Heard from a friend that the WSU alpine club might be there this weekend. Is than you?
