      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!

Redoubt, Spickard, Rahm, Custer, Mox Peaks?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been into Redoubt/Spickard area this year? I'm primarily interested in the condition of Depot Creek trail and any known access issues. TIA.

Have you been up Depot Creek before? The approach shouldn't be a problem unless you are not familiar with the boulder dash next to the waterfall....for some reason this gives some people problems......the road can be a little muddy this time of year.....bring 4x4....my Subaru got worked as I recall. Just give it a shot......it's a lonely area.

Looking south 06/22 from about 20km north, the NE glacier of Redoubt looked to be in good shape.

Depending on how far you drive (are you worried about your paint job?) you will hike about two miles before running into a sign informing you that you must turn around, hike out, drive back accross the border, and get a wilderness pass at Sedro Wooley and a customs entry permit or some such thing at the border.

We dont let the Tool bring his gun into Canada so if he wants to check your pass he is gonna have to hike or helicopter in from Baker I guess.

 

Also the parking lot is in Canada so no parking pass required [smile]

Thanks for the replies. I decided to wait on Spickard/Redoubt/Rahm/Custer until later on in the season (probably the last week of July).
