      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!

Adams--Battlement Ridge/Rusk Glacier

Recommended Posts

Anyone been on this route or attacked The Castle from another eastside route? We're giving this serious consideration for early August and I don't want the trip to turn into a Mazama bail-out.

Hmm That's a long haul. I assume you're coming in as per Mazama then traversing. Tried it in May a couple years ago and was blown off. Crevasses were providing interesting route finding to get to the ridge then so August ought to be a hoot. There is an interesting access to the high ridge if you're comfortable with some steep ice. Shorter than starting low but , again, by August It'd be tricky.

I assume this picture shows the variation your talking about? This picture was taken on June 30, 2001. Note how broken up the lower Klickitat is shocked.gif

 

Keep me posted, The Castle was on my "tick-list" for this year via this variation.
