That would be either Lillowet in BC, or Strobach Mountain in Yakima County. Can't speak much for Lillowet, but Strobach boasts several WI4s and 5s, in the requested pitch length, and are generally around later than most WA ice climbs.


Get this book to hep ya out (see attachment). thumbs_up.gif

For a day trip, use the WA state ice guide.


For a 2+ day trip, Lillooet BC has perhaps the most reliable ice in the Pacific Northwest, but is a 5.5 hour drive from Seattle.


For a 4+ day trip, Banff is an 11 hour drive on I-90 and a 12-13 hour drive on the TransCanada from Seattle and has much better ice and choice of easy-access routes than Lillooet...can be a bit crowded on weekends though....nice to go midweek..
