      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 am planning on going up Gib Ledges, the most popular winter route because of it's directness, in late April. So yes, it may be nasty, and it may be nice. It may be nice and nasty or it may be nasty and nice. I am not inviting anyone because we have a rope of 3 which is my preffered arrangement. Just as a point of information, the chances of summitting are not good but they are worse if you don't try. Be prepared for rain, snow, freezing rain, melting snow, sub zero temps, whiteouts, high winds, and deep powder and dangerous slabs all in the same trip. No shit!

Me and a mate from the UK are coming over at the beginning of April. He has only got 10 days (8th onwards I think) and would consider a third in the team. Looking at one of the Ridges or Gib ledges. If interested PM me.

looking for partner/s or team to hook into on rainier around the first 3 weeks of april

any route considered bigdrink.gif

 

I'd definitely be interested. Free any weekend. Uber gear. No particular preference on route. I'd prefer more than a pair if conditions get less than optimal. What's your schedule??? snaf.gif
