      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!

DC Route Beta

Recommended Posts

Ingram Direct is the way to go, I'm going up that route in about a week if I can find some time between puling all nighters studying, and writing papers (school sux, can't wait for summer). Check out the beta on ID here Mike knows his stuff! Alpine rockband.gif I can taste the summer fruit.gif now if only the weather would cooperate! hellno3d.gif

definitely hit the ID this time of year. it's probably safer and more direct.

 

for the benefit of everyone, it's been snowing here in longmire for the past 3 days!!! though little is accumulating, the fact that it's remaining cold and snowing is somewhat odd for may.

 

with that said, the upper mountain is also remaining cold, and i think the summer climbing conditions are going to be GREAT this season. thumbs_up.gifbigdrink.gif there has been a fair amount of late winter and spring snowfall to fill in the gaps from winter. nisqually gl, nisq. icefall, nisq ice cliff, kautz gl, kautz cleaver, kautz headwall and the gib route all look good from the paradise parking lot... sorry i don't have more detailed information to share. perhaps others will as more folks start climbing.

 

also, DEFINITELY CONSIDER THE CURRENT AVALANCHE SITUATION. the ONLY way to really do this is to go look for yourself, there is NO forcasting for the upper mountain. as you can imagine, conditions change constantly for each and every route. i think the NWAC posted a special bulletin for the weekend.

i took a closer look at the nisqually icefall.... i wouldn't recommend that route anymore this season...

 

great boarding on the snowfield today... tons of snow up there, seems like winter.

any big slots open out on the nisqually yet? thinking of climbing the kautz this weekend as part of denali training, and we want to practice hauling a sled out of a big crack (or was that practice smoking a lot of big crack while sitting on a sled?) sometime soon
