      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!

[TR] Mt. Stuart- Attempt on Ice Cliff Glacier 5/22/2005

Recommended Posts

Climb: Mt. Stuart-Attempt on Ice Cliff Glacier

 

Date of Climb: 5/22/2005

 

Trip Report:

Hiked in on Saturday evening. Rained the entire time, got soaking wet. Bivied at 5,400 in the trees. Woke up at 4:30am to partially clear skies. Started up towards the ice cliff glacier. Started snowing. Couldn't see the upper part of the mountain. Up to our waist in places in fresh snow. There was maybe a foot of snow in places. All rock was plastered with snow, looked like winter up there. Got to base of Ice Cliff Glacier and turned around. Some a group of some dudes from Seattle up there who also turned around. Shitty.

 

Approach Notes:

Mostly snow free to the bivy sites, there are few patches here and there but easily bypassed.

Not the best pic in the world, but... showphoto.php?photo=10679&sort=1&cat=504&page=1

It definately looks a little snowy.

I was in the group with the other guys. At first we were a little bummed that we didn't even leave camp, but after hearing Alpineandrew and friend's report, we were content with our trip simply being "training". We made it back down the hill and went directly to Gustav's bigdrink.gif

sorry, i should give credit to the author, it is a beatiful pic! i just meant that there's not a lot of close detail on the stuff that climbers would find interesting.
