      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!

Buck Mountain Beta

Recommended Posts

I'll be taking a trip to Buck Mountain to climb the Southeast route. Does anyone have any information that might be useful for me (i.e. condition of King's Glacier in late season)? The approach is from Trinity via the Buck Creek Trail. Any input is appreciated.

Nope, not me. The adventure is on hold until I speak with someone who has been up there and who has found a nice route. Climbed Fernow in a day this weekend car to car instead of risking a non-summit at Buck.

I checked this peak out in the Beckey Book. Go buy it and that is your beta. I think the thing is maximum class 2 or 3.

I've got the Beckey book and I require more info than is offered in the book. If you look at the route description for the Southeast approach in the old Beckey book and the one in the new Beckey book you too will realize that they are different. The route description in the new Beckey book calls for 100 ft. of class 4 .. the old one does not. I am bringing a novice climber up to Buck Mountain with me who is not experienced at climbing class 4 and 5. I also do not want to carry rope all the way up there if I don't need it. You seem to believe that only information on class 5 routes is worthy of being in this forum. If that's the case, you need to go re-read the forum heading. So does anyone else besides "captain dickhead" have any pertinent information on the Southeast route up Buck Mountain? Thanks in advance for any serious help.

If you are only bringing the rope for the novice try taking 100 feet of 6mm cord instead.

GOD FORBID that a guidebook not tell you everything about a climb including which hand to use for which hold and what brand of GoreTex to wear. Wonder how people ever manage to do First Ascents lacking this valuable knowledge.
