      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!

Baker, finally!

Recommended Posts

I don't have time to do a trip report and I suspect no one wants another Baker TR anyway so I'll just say..... WOW! I almost didn't go this time of year but I'm SO glad I did. It was AWESOME! So beautiful with the crevasses all open like that. Made it WAY more interesting than I had expected. The best rope team ever.... beautiful scenery.... great weather.... what a blast.

I tried to do a handstand on top of the Monkey Face but I tripped over an aider and nearly fell off.

Hey -- I would actually like a bit of a trip report - at least a conditions report. Did you go this past weekend? I'm supposed to go this weekend and my partners and I are getting varying info. Someone even said to bring ice screws and be prepared to short rope through a bunch of stuff! I think he must have been speaking of a different route. So, standard slog route, current conditions info would be great if you or anyone has got them. Will contact Ranger station too.

Thanks much. Yeah, and great handstand.

We just did the standard Coleman Demming route. Conditions were excellent. Nice styrofoam snow in the morning. Much better than I was expecting. No problems beyond a bit of route finding through the crevasse maze.
