      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!

Recommended Posts

Date of Climb: 10/2-3/2004

 

Trip Report:

Nice fall conditioning hike! Colors are really nice right now. DEEELUXX camping to be had at Cyclone Lakes. Amazing views the entire way once you are out of the woods and on to the ridge. bigdrink.gif

Full TR and photos: http://www.alpineslider.com/snowking.htm

 

Gear Notes:

Ice axe for glacier descent. If you stay on the rocks, you won't need diddly squat.

Road 1570 is washed out at about 1,300ft. leaving about 3 miles of road to hike. cry.gif

I've done this in May on snowshoes - excellent snow camping. Looks like a great fall trip, too. Thanks for the pictures.

Out of curiousity, at what elevation did you hit decent snowpack in May? Thanks!

Here's a TR and details on a trip I did in late March of of 2001. I did the same trip again in April of 2002 with similar snow conditions (snow starting at the end of what used to be the road).

More fishing for beta: would you say those three extra miles of road past washout would be worth bringing a mtn bike for? Or is it too brushy and otherwise messed up?

Yeah, for the most part, you could ride all the way to the trailhead. There were a couple very short spots where you'd have to hop off your bike for a second. Either way, on foot didn't take very long...but on the way out it sure would have been nice to coast all the way back to the car!

 

What really needs to happen is for someone to dedicate a weekend to cutting backsome of the branches and limbs that are over the road. Apparently, the powers that be aren't feeding any trail park pass funds to this road. cantfocus.gif
