      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!

Hanging Lake Ice Climbs

Recommended Posts

Looking at the pic I took of Hanging Lake in Chilliwack during last summer, I see that there may be some interesting lines...However, getting there in Summer was grueling enough, let alone giving it a try in winter...any takers????

This reminds me Dru about Centre Creek.

 

Dru, about how much snow is on the ground up the Chilliwack river road around Centre Creek/Nesakwatch? Or at what elevation does the snow start?

about 300m elevation and none on main chilliwack river road cause they plow it to the lake. you arent going to be able to drive either nesakwatch or center, you cant even drive center in the summer anymore by the way frown.gif

Two weeks ago there was only a few inches on the Nesakwatch in the area of the slide (which contrary to reports IS drivable, btw, with some hc), given the sun of late I'm sure you could drive much further if you wanted. Though for what purpose at the moment I'm not sure tongue.gif

I know Centre is a mtnbike/hike combo. I am just trying to figure out when the earliest someone could go up Centre creek using the mtnbike. The elevation of the snow gives me an indication of similar areas to the east of Seattle and when they get freed up of snow with similar elevations in a valley and north-south direction of a road.

Just looking through an old BC Heritage magazine and found some pics of the first Slesse ascent...thought this comparison is kinda cool, so I printed it off and put it in my photo album...thought others may find this kinda neat.

maybe it would have been better if you had worn white shirts and suspenders and taken your helmets off confused.gif as it is what are you comparing?

Actually I would love to find some oldtimer gear and take photos like that...some of the old clothes and ropes, boots...etc. are amazing, everytime I go into an antique shop I look for old ice axes,and stuff like that.

What I was actually comparing was just the rock in the background to see any geological change...etc. I had a bunch more that I was comparing with some old photos...In only some 80-85 years, some rock has really changed in some pics.

it's hard to tell, but is that the gendarme near the bottom of the SW ridge? confused.gif really with the fog and lack of landmarks it could be any tower. i don't think it's the summit of S Nesakwatch though because there are no offwidths wink.gif

Actually, its just a tiny little spire on the approach to the border peaks from the south side, sitting in the grassy alpine meadow about 5800ft, the little spire is a cool little 70ft climb, that is if you bust some moves on the face, if not, you can scramble up one side of it, but it makes for some good pics...

Hello, I'm realizing that this thread is VERY VERY old. I'm trying to find the original photo for the first Slesse ascent posted above by Adam Palmer. I'm hoping to use it for an article in Alpinist Magazine. Can anyone help out?

 

Thanks!!!! photo@alpinist.com
