      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!

mt. logan fremont glacier route

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals. I'm taking my dad on a trip up mount logan this saturday through monday for his birthday. We're going in through park creek pass via chelan ferry and stehekin. should be lots of fun.

 

my question is for anybody that has done the route...what gear should I bring? From what I read in the nelson book and what I saw through my camera's telephoto lens from eldorado last week, the glacier looks very straightforward. The rock scrambling also looks quite easy. I am debating between no rope, a 30m 8.4mm rope and a 50m 9mm rope. Considering it's late season and everything is probably open, I'm considering having us just solo the route as that would get rid of not only the weight of the rope, but the harnesses as well.

 

thanks,

-josh

I'd bring the 30m 8.4mm. I was up there this time last season (a low snow year) and the glacier was UGLY. This year it shouldn't be so bad, but I'd bring the rope nonetheless. Maybe someone who's been up there recently could tell you otherwise, but that's what I'd do ... It's a long way to go to find out you need some rope. Watch out for bears ... there's a bunch up there. Have fun, and post a TR when you get back.
