      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!

Dru, Is PageTop the name of that route on Colfax or something else? It has been plenty cold on the North Side of Baker. I was up there last Sunday and there were several flows frozen up on the cliff bands to the left of the hogs back or climbers trail. They are all fairly easy but there was ice and quite a bit of it. Couldnt see Colfax from there though as it was snowing a bit. Even some sunstantial in the creeks on the way up there and it has gotten colder since. Go get it!

I believe PageTop is an ephemeral route that will appear and disappear two posts after this. i was mislead into believing it had already formed [big Grin]

I'm thinking on joining some of you folks that might be ice bouldering. I'll be heading up Sat. Where are folks camping?

 

Look for Shasta and not far behind, me! [smile]

The person you ran into on the trail was me, not TLG, she and the Col were up in the serrac fields, you may have seen them and not known it.

 

It was a great time, on Sunday we climbed some water ice right near our camp spot, Fern showed us how it was done, Rodeo climbed in Lowa low ankle trail shoes and some non rigid crampons...way to go!!

 

I'm sure someone will be posting pic's, or maybe we can see them at the pub club.

 

Thanks for the KGB Fence Sitter, was it too cold for you guys to stay a second night or what??

we had to get back for school...we had a mid-term make-up in our anthropology course...would have stayed as it was beautiful, but oh well...yeah i saw cavey and highlander on their way up to camp...we never went over to the serac field and instead found our own lil paradise after turning around on the climbing route... [big Grin] perhaps next time...eh?

Good times up on the Coleman Saturday afternoon

Sergio and I met up with TLG and CVS and Saturdya morning and hiked up to the coleman glacier.

 

Lots of people already out there. It was a sweet ass day of sun and fun

Once the sun went down over the ridge it got pretty cold and we bolted around 430pm and thoguht how cold all you guys were gonna be that night.

 

How was the French Dining?

 

We had fun in the sun on Sunday at 11worth up at Sam Hill, I stuck my finger in a a fuzzy navel of a talk show host

 

Climbed until the sun went down
