      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!

Any info on Gib Ledges or Nisqually Icefall?

I witnessed a burial on that Pan Point slope, about a mile out of the parking lot and at about 6500 feet, some years back. A large number of skiers were all climbing the slope at the same time when the top guy triggered a slab. When the slide stopped, several guys were caught in the debris, and one had only his hand showing above the surface. His buddies ran over to him and did a quick dog-paddle to dig him out.

 

The route suggested by Clyde, along the ridgeline on the right side of that face, with small trees anchoring the snow, is probably the safest line.
