      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!

the route actually looked like it was "in"...good luck getting to it though!

 

we had the key to the gate so the 10km ski turned into an 8km drive before the road got too rough for a passenger car. the problem with getting to the climb is that now all the snow in the valley bottom has melted out and the last 2km of the road is TOTALLY overgrown with slide alder. warm temps and rain on/off was inducing a lot of wet snow sliding off the surrounding peaks, Zero Gully looked good though and nothing was falling on the route directly. we decided that the weather was crappy, the snow wouldnt likely be much better, there was something of a safety issue to consider, and no one wanted anything to do with 2km of bushwacking through wet slide alder. so we went to Squamish instead...but thats another trip report. wink.gif

Ditto, he's still after this or other snow routes near Hope. If interested in climbing (or approaching) such routes with a veteran alpinist, give a PM or email.
