      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!

It was so cold when I woke up this morning, I had to use a hair dryer to unfreeze my ass cheeks before my morning constitutional.

just returned from wasting some time up the cascade river road with a headcold. there are some thin low-angle flows on the slabs below cascade pass and a couple steep thin drools formed directly below the sill glacier (if that's your thing). the fault-line route on the left side of j-berg's northeast face looks like it might be a good mixed climb right now---likely need a bivy if you went to the summit. as of 2 weeks ago, the 1985 route on j-berg (couldn't scope it from the parking lot this morning) and the triplets couloirs looked like they could use a bit more precip.

from what i understand you are a steep thin drool.....

so seriously, about the ice report... or lack thereof...

 

I'm guessing that although it's been so darn cold, there is not enough groundwater to give us any flows...

 

And they say it rains all the time up here....

 

right.

yah, we did zee Toof yestarday, my vigin Toof ascent. I thought it was a quality route!

 

The ice around source lake is forming, and almost in...almost meening that it is probably climbable, but by the looks of it you'd be hard pressed to get good pro in. If this cold sticks around it will be ready very soon. [big Drink]

 

today im stuck raking leaves [Frown]

yeah the forecast was for warming temps and precip through the end of the week. I am hoping the stuff thats already formed will survive and we'll have an early year like 2000

You were in the wrong area man. We hit up a 1/4 pitch waterfall and it was super fun. 100 yards from the tent baby.

naw i just got the pics back and dmn it was fun...we got our fair share of vertical ice in the ice field we had to cross up on the glacier [big Grin] but then descended down to a 2+ pitch waterfall...i went up about 12 feet and decided that i was a dumbass for even being on that thing as a nice sheet came down and knocked my boot out and i barndoored...good times though...perhaps after this warm/wet spell i will head back up there and check things out...that WI2 sounds killer...we'll have to hook it up sometime...
