      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!

Con von spank, when are you two driving up? If no one else wants to go I don't want to drive it alone (Anyone?), do you have room in vechicle for dirtbag climber?

Fence Sitter,

 

There's a great campsite very close to the glacier.

 

Unsure if you've been on the glacier, but the tourist trail crosses 2 creeks above tree line (after "the climbers route" (signed) branches off to the right). After crossing the first creek, the trail traverses across a faint ridge. At the peak of the ridge (not high point of trail), a trail forks off at 90 degrees to the left, going down hill. Take this trail, crossing the creek after a couple of minutes. The trail continues downward above the creek and runs into a wooded ridge. There's an excellent campsite on the ridge (100 feet into the trees) with an outhouse below the camp on its creek side. A trail continues through the camp and drops down along the moraine and doubles back to gain the glacier.

 

Camping at the actual toe of the glacier might best be described as camping in a frozen mudhole sans water supply.

 

Looks like a number of us will be in the neighborhood. May it could be declared an honorary province.

Honorary Province - Only if you can fight ala battle axe or ice axe for the name. I say we hop in a crevasse then pummel and stab until someone wins. If its me then it's no province. If its you (not likely) then we can call it British Coleman- [Roll Eyes] umbia

Someone should consider wandering up the glacier a bit farther and giving the Coleman Headwall a go. Betcha ya its in fine shape right now with a little new snow, some sun, and cold temps. If'n I cant recruit a partner and maybe even if I cant i might be heading that way. Lot more mileage to be had up there than in the icefall. Just a thought.

Cavey,

 

I was thinking about the King of the Mountain thing and was initially going to suggest renaming it Rage against the Machine. At that point I realized that I'd probably snap a cobra pick trying to remove it from your skull. Bummer. I'll run my fishsticks with well tuned blades so they don't stick in bone.

 

Looking forward to it.
