      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!

It is nowhere. You saw nothing here. Couloirs on north faces of nearby peaks are steep and very dangerous!

 

PS. I hate 3 day weekends where the weather is only conducive to reading this site and drinking bigdrink.gif

climbed the North Face of Chair Peak on Saturday with Masternate32 and one other. stable snow conditions on the approach (though very icy slopes). the climb was awesome, fair amount of rotten ice, but still quality climbing. we hiked out in the dark and fog. there was a party of four ahead of us on the climb and other than that we didn't see anyone else that day.

No pics sadly. We were able to place several screws in some good ice. we used a picket on one pitch, other that, we just ran it out and used trees higher up. there was sections of quality ice, but interspersed with not such good ice. still an awesome climb.

The party of four was Doug Walker, Todd, Gus, and Julian Simon. They left the car at 8:30 and got to the top via the N. Face at 1:00. Pretty fast, eh? They said they saw you at one point but then didn't see you again.

 

Sound like the day was a good one. Way to go.
