      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!

Coleman glacier in the summertime.

 

Possibly some stuff on Blackcomb in the winter? The skiing's always been too good for me to even think about climbing while I'm there, but supposedly there's an area with some farmed lines that's readily accessed via skis in the winter. I'm sure that other folks can fill you in with more info.

The Farm on Blackcomb is right below the Glacier Express chair, and reaching the anchors from above looks sketchy to impossible. Last year there was no ice there anyway b/c they needed the water for snowmaking.

The lower tier of Marble Canyon near Lillooet is usually the location of choice for TRing ice. Unfortunately, on most weekends every ice climber from SWBC and the PNW who wants to get an ice fix without having to lead anything will be there along with the occaisonal guided group.

 

Get yourself a copy of Don's guide for more info.
