      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!

I'd wait till this cold snap snaps if you want warmer temperatures. I was up at 6,300 feet today and it was very cold. Maybe something like 15F (0F with windchill) at that altitude. Seems to be a large pressure gradient across the Cascades right now making things, at times, uncomfortably windy.

Just give up on the idea that you don't want to leave WA and follow the hoardes to Smith for a fun weekend of climbing that is way better than Vantage choss.
