      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!

I doubt they would have let you get much sleep.

Maybe it COULD be. You don't know the guy's skill and condtioning level. I once took four days to climb and descend the Kautz. It was a great trip!

I expect it'd be pretty tough to do the east side routes (Tacoma Glacier, etc) in a day car-to-car. Though the record for Lib Ridge is 21 hours car-to-car, so there's probably someone out there who could do Tacoma Glacier in a day.

Anyone ever tried to do something in a single day and then really wished they hadn't? Not even just forced to bivy, but made it back to the car and sworn that you would never try something like it again... ?

Nisqually is the shortest approach. Cant be it. But I cant figure out what the point was.

 

Although I dont see why anyone would want to climb the upper portion of the glacier above and left of muir directly.

car 2 car is nice cause you don't have to carry as much crap, especially if yer carryin' a trad rack. Regarding driving home, just remember, if you are suffering on the hike out think how much it will suck driving home.

 

You can party down at the car, after a car 2 car trip, with lots o food and beer and music, then get waffles the following morning in Little Bavaria

 

I would usually rather hump the gear up and spend a night in the wilderness, But sometimes car 2 cars is a must.

I was doing some research on the Bugs' for a trip next year and happened upon this article. Personally I agree with the majority of the responses in this thread and frankly have little desire to run in and out of the mountains as fast as I can just for the fuck of it. Although I enjoy pushing myself to be a better/faster/more efficient climber, I also like to stop and smell the roses....

You would have a tough time getting to the top of Mt. Blum and back in a day. Or Terror.

 

Ptarmagin ridge on Rainier looks like a fun day outing, car to car...

Anyone ever do the NE Buttress of Goode in a day? Probably not. The North Face of Buckner may be do able in day, anyone do it in 24 hours?
