      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!

Has anyone done the Ingraham in the last couple of days? I'm hoping to head up Sunday or Monday...

We did the ID on Thursday. Nothing difficult. Well, other than the normal 14k mountain stuff on an hour sleep. Followed two RMI groups. We left Muir at 2:30 and wished we had left earlier as the trip down was getting a little soft. We had one member stick a leg through once. RMI had one ladder with boards across a 4 footer. On the way down I speculated that we might be the last ones down ID this year. Things were getting soft fast. Anybody go yesterday, Friday?

Did the ID on Friday. The best thing to do is to leave as early as possible, we left at 12:30am and it was beginning to get pretty sloppy on the way down even that early. The route will probably only be in for another week or so. Very direct right now, not too many sketchy crevasse crossings (one RMI ladder to cross @ 12,500ft, not bad tho). Hope that helps, have a great trip and be safe!

Hey, Dulton! We must have passed you on Friday.

 

We went ID on Saturday morning. Crevasses are melting out fast. There were a couple that you've got to take a bit of a leap across. I would agree they'll start leading up DC within a week.

 

We had a team of 6 Rainier virgins and 4 summited. But man was it hot, when we got back to Muir!

Yesterday morning RMI was putting in the DC when we came down, and there was talk of them pulling the ladders from the ID in the next couple of days.

Don't take the same route as RMI up. It will just make you feel like a jackass.
