      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!

Hyalite Ice (or lack off)

Recommended Posts

Its warm here again today but weather man says mercury is dropping thru the weekend. Climbed a few routes in Hyalite but they are thin to moderate in formation. I'd give it a few more weeks before driving the 12 hours from Seattle at this point. You'd get a hell of va lot more bang for buck. We are heading out again this weekend and I'll post on Montanaice.com what we find in terms of conditions. But I would recommend planning for Dec or Jan if you want a good trip.

Beware of the posts claiming totally in routes. They may be climbable but 500 lbs. of formed ice on a route that usually is 5000 lbs. of ice does not constitue "totally".

I spent Nov 20-22 in Hyalite climbing a variety of well-formed routes: Champagne Sherbert & Slot were both in good shape, as did High Crimes appear to be. Bobo Like was very climbable and Killer Pillar has already touched down. Twin Falls was certainly extra-large...

Most of the routes may not truly be "in," but they are certainly climbable, with decent protection for the most part. Most of the routes higher up in the Genesis area are looking good- GII, Upper Greensleeves, Hangover. Last I saw, Responsible Family Men was looking huge. Also, the ice should really start to fill in nicely after this weekend's colder temps roll through.
