      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!

You better ask how was the snow

By the time we finished postholing to Muir it was clear that just two of us would not be able to posthole upto the summit and back in a day. So we decided to join another party that was going Gib ledges thinking that four excavators is twice better than two. Well, next morning we got to the ledge in two hours, the other party bailed at this point and we proceeded digging up the ledge. The ledge was even more loaded with cold weist to neck deep powder. So after a long discussion of how would it be to exit the ledge in this conditions without possible pro, we bailed from 12k.

 

Give it one-two days to settle down and all routes will be in superb conditions! madgo_ron.gifthe_finger.gif

Thats gotta be madgo_ron.gif... Way to try though. I'm planning on Gib Ledges in a week or two depending on weatehr. Hopefully all that snow will consolidate.

The tracks we saw going up to the ledges from Muir on Sunday must have been yours. It was pretty deep even with skiis on. Oh well, it was probably a good work out. thumbs_up.gif

Looks like more snow showers up there though madgo_ron.gif.

 

Good work guys. So, we had like one or maybe two good days all winter. Hopefully, spring/summer

will be more kind.

Alex, I used your boot track this morning and had a very similar experience. I guess I'll post a TR though it may be redundant by now.
