      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!

Colchuk Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been up Colchuk recently? I am thinking about a climb there this weekend. Anyone have suggestions re: gear, crevasse danger, etc? Is it doable in November? Any special routefinding difficulties on the approach?

Check out the conditions on Colchuck Peak under the "Alpine Lakes" section of this web site. It has not snowed since we were there two weeks ago, so conditions will likely be similar.

bummer on having all that new snow up there for the climb. I did Colchuck last October and it was a great, easy ice climb, with 40 degree hard glacial ice that we had to do a running belay on with ice screws. Guess it all depends on what time you go...I've heard Colchuck can be a great ski in the winter and spring from the col down to the lake.
