      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!

[TR] Chair Peak- circumnavigation 4/18/2004

Recommended Posts

Climb: Chair Peak-circumnavigation


Date of Climb: 4/18/2004


Trip Report:

Ned Flanders and I left Seattle early in the morning, wondering what the weather will bring us. The sun danced among the clouds all day, softening up southern slopes that never froze the night before, but leaving northern aspects icy with breakable crusts. We ended up booting down from Chair-Bryant col to Melakawa Lake, not wanting to skid/crash down frozen avy debris. We wanted to do Kaleetan, but the top looked melted out from below. The snow on the rest of the trip was skiiable, perhaps even enjoyable, though you had to work for your turns. We got back to the car around 2:00 PM and got hit by a few rain showers on the drive back.


Approach Notes:

Snow Lake is still solidly frozen. Pretty slushy out there.
