      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!

With on short carry past the waterfall, we could ski about 5 minutes from the Tline trail. Probably will not go in another week though:

Yeah, I hear ya about the telemarkers . .

 

The road to Cloud Cap is fully opened, it opened sometime last week. The "ruts" the USFS receptionist emphasised as bad are pretty minor (imo)

Nice going! Looks like everyone had a great time. Quick question. Which trail do you usually go to get up onto snowdome? I've hiked both (crossed the temporary bridge and up the right moraine/up left moraine and crossed between the ice falls). Since they were done on different years, I couldn't really remember which seemed easier/faster. Thanks again for posting the pictures and reminding me that I wasted a play day with a "family get together"

I always go up the moraine on climber's right (the Eliot east moraine), then quickly cross the snowfield underneath Langille crags (there's rockfall hazard here) and hike up the dome. Look for the use trail on your left once you cross Eliot creek and get into the forest. Here's the GPS map:

Thanks. I figured that was probably the best way to go. Once made the mistake of thinking we could just stay on the tline trail and find a place to cross where the bridge is washed out after a day on snowdome. Not a good idea. By the time we scrambled down to the water and saw how high and fast it was, we knew we were screwed. Some big jumps between rocks with a heavy packs made for an exciting ending of an otherwise fun ski trip in the middle of summer.

I think going up the left side and not crossing the creek was a little quicker. This was the first time I had gone up the right. The only thing about going up the left side is you have to cross on the lower glacier and it seemed a little harry when I've done it. So, I guess I prefer the right side.

 

This trip rockband.gif It was nice to be able to ski to the Tline trail. With an easy hike out.
