      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!

Good Morning All-

Does anyone have recent route condition info on Goat Mtn? Is it a snow shoe climb or will ropes be required? Also...any good suggestion where to camp? As the weather is looking good this weekend!!! Thanks in advance.

No need for camping if you get an early start. Don't go the way of the Goat Mountain Trail, it is way too long. Snowshoes should be fine. Start from Twin Lakes Road, cut down to Swamp Creek and head up a gully to the glacier basin in between the West and East Peaks. Head up some steep snow and then traverse to the east side for the summit. Great views in all directions. IT is definitely easy to get both peaks in one day. And if snow conditions are good, a nice glissade back down. Just be careful going up the gully as it has some avy and rockfall dangers depending on snow condition.
