      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!

stuart range conditions

Recommended Posts

Probably. Chances are the best conditions are going to be comming up next weekend once it starts getting cold again. The current weather as forcast looks like exactly what climbers want to set up great conditions. I would bet the TCs will be good and N. Face of colonial is going to look good next week also. Just a guess, but If you are looking to get out in the mountains these next two weekends might be the best available, with second weekend being the prime.

Colonial will be a wallow this weekend unless the freezing level drops. Maybe next week... maybe...

 

If you need snowshoes/skis on the approach to Colonial the face isn't in.

Yes you will need snowshoes anywhere you are this weekend, but I really do think conditions are going to set up quite nice in the next couple of weeks. Things look good, and I think all those people bitching about shitty weather should get off their asses and go climb something in the next couple of weeks. Oh and we are going to see some real nice cold weather next week which will make shit really nice.

Bring us back a TR. I may be up there next weekend.

I would REALLY appreciate a pic of Colchuck showing the NW and N couliors.

Can I get fries with that?
