      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!

The Icicle is massively burning right now. I'd post a picture but all I see is smoke, lotsa smoke.

road closed at 8-mile campground, evacuating everyone beyond that. Apparently lightning caused near Ida Creek

Damn, that's awful. What's the best way to keep current with the fire? Forest Service websites?

Any updates on fire status and Icicle Creek access?

Just called the ranger Station.

Icicle Creek Road is closed at the SnowLake Trailhhead.

 

500 acres burning currently.

New boulders? doubtful. Cleaner boulders? Quite possibly, although where it's burning right now there isn't much in the way of boulders.

 

I'd dump a years worth of bigdrink.gif on it right now if it would extinguish the damn fire. madgo_ron.gif

Just spoke to a friend in the FS over there. It's going to keep them busy - very dry. She strongly suggest alternative plans to the Icicle this weekend. Rats! That's what I was planning.

No Thrutch, not right now. cry.gif It's a bit hot anyhow. We will reschedule, fall will be a better time for that grunt. Let's just hope that damn fire doesn't jump the road or move too far east, that would really suck. Hopefully it won't burn til it snows.

 

Every time one of these things starts it really bums me out. cry.gif

 

On a lighter note, maybe we can find another Pearly Gates! bigdrink.gif

The real question is where Bush's podium will be oriented for his next healthy forests speech. It will be a tough framing choice to get maximum billowing smoke in the background with haybales and rolled-up ranch shirt in foreground.
