      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!

Is there a better month for the W. Rib ?

Recommended Posts

Historically June is a much better month. Summit successes go way up in June, not because of better conditions necessarily but because of warmer temperatures. May can be a tough month for any route on the mountain due to the extreme cold sometimes encountered at altitude. I'd say leave for the mountain around the last week of May, putting you on the route in early to mid-June.

yes thats great advice, last year we put on the ribb in mid june and with the shitty snow we had bad rock fall through the chicken couliar, and a shitty time getting up the fork. tons of crevasses opened up. but this is obviously going to be a much better snow year.
