      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!

"Death Icicles" at Devil's Punchbowl, Banks Lake

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

 

Can anyone confirm the status of the Death Icicles that were perched above Devil's Punchbowl last weekend? With the current warming trend, I am imagining they are growing fatter, but perhaps de-laminating from the ceiling and bigdrink.gifcrashing down.

 

I hope that they are coming down, as I am not inclined to venture below them until they do.

 

Paul Detrick or others, please report if you have an update to share. Thanks in advance.

 

Steve

Forget Devils Punchbowl...climb the other stuff in the area, way better. And you can still TR most of them if you don't wanna lead.

On Sat, 1/11, around 11 am, the deathcicles looked (it was foggy and hard to see clearly) like they were still there even though there were three parties on the ice.

As of SUNDAY 1/11.. Quiet in the AM but around noon more of the 'cicles of death resumed their reign of terror. We got some laps on Trotsky's Folly though.

Thanks Paul. never made it up that far,climbed at the sunlakes golf course, was too warm, if it don't get cold again it will all go away. Better hurry if you want some.
