      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!

Mt. Mcloughlin and Scott

Recommended Posts

I will be in southern Oregon in the middle of June 2006 and plan on climbing Mt. Mcloughlin and Mt. Scott then. What kind of conditions can I expect at this time of year? I will be climbing with one partner and both of us have done most of the Appalachian 6000 in winter and Mt. Hood 2 years ago.

I climbed Mcloughlin a few years back in June (maybe it was July?)... expect nothing more than a long hike up a scree trail. No real route finding issues if you can follow paint spots on rocks. Coming down is a little trickier... not difficult, just trickier. On the way up, just keep turning around to see where you came from.


In June of an average year, you can expect at least some snow patches at 9000' so be aware of that. Of course this varies year to year (this past snow year you would have had a clear trail all the way to the summit in March! madgo_ron.gif)


I recall the bugs were pretty bad down low, too, but there was an awesome display of dragon files for the last thousand feet (including the summit). It was a nice hike from what I remember. thumbs_up.gif


Can't tell you anything about Scott though.
