      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!

green butte ridge

Recommended Posts

Climber Green butte on February 2nd. Perfect day as far as snow conditions go. The weather had been sunny for close to a month, and this was the first cold spell, so solid base.

Began the climb at 3:30 from bunny flats. Reached arete at the old ski bowl at around 7:30. Winds began to howl. 80mph. Solo, but kept moving on. Front pointing around pinnacles breaking the arete. About half way up to sargents winds became too much, and turned back. Great mountian, but so large in comparison to surroundings, it feed on storms. High winds. fruit.gifbigdrink.gif

When I went through that way about a month ago The snow looked thin on the west side of the mountain but pretty good elsewhere. I was looking from down in town though. All the news reports say snow levels are above normal for that part of the state. Black Bear Diner is the reataurant. There is one in Mount Shasta City.
