      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!

Little T Registration

Recommended Posts

There seems to be some debate amongst my group that we would have to "register" with the rangers to do a day climb of Little Tahoma? I'm talking leaving the trailhead for the Fryingpan route at like 3:30 AM and then getting back to the cars in the late afternoon or something. Do we have to register? The rangers aren't picking up the phone today...

While I doubt you'd be tracked down and handcuffed, I think I remember some stipulation for Rainier about "if you go over 10k or onto a glacier" they want you to register.

Yep, registration is "required" for all folks above 10K. You may not be tracked down, but when we climbed at couple weeks ago, we did run into rangers at the trailhead.

 

In theory, part of the registration is paying the annual $50 climbing fee per climber. The ranger station at White River only takes cash and checks.

 

Here is some unsolicited beta. Bring and wear your brain bucket after you cross over the 9000' gap. Lots of spontaneous rock fall (we almost got the chop by a tire sized rocket on the snow field at about 10,500') that could ruin you day. hellno3d.gifhellno3d.gifhellno3d.gifhellno3d.gif

Yep...sorry about that... my 3s and 5s sometimes pull a dyslexia thing when I type. $30 bucks it is.
