      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!

I hear there's a bunch of police-state rangers there ready to dish $75 tickets for parking overnight without a camping permit. That's when it cost $15 for the pleasure of parking in the first place. Nevermind whether or not suckaz think you went high on the mountain.

 

Plus I hear dragons nest up there. Yuck.

So, how high did you go? So, how high did you go?

 

Ha. Ha.

That would be the white dragon? I hear he's a fisty one.

A fisty one? I think you meant feisty, or else I'd call you a sick bastard. Fisty might be appropriate though; a windslab high on Tahoma could rearrange your ass real quick. yellaf.gif

Saturday was six hours in whiteout conditions to Muir Hut. Out of six people in the hut only two made the attempt on Sunday. Pochi said they made it not quite to the top of the Cowlitz before they turned around. They were post-holing badly and it was blowing like stink. She said she'd write a TR.

Scott, Steve and I headed up Friday afternoon with a light snow falling and thick clouds. Deep snow, whiteout conditions, and strong relentless winds made the going slow. Ran into solo climber Greg who was 15 minutes ahead of us but had turned around hoping to run into another group to help break trail. He joined us in the uphill push. We all turned around at about 7500' due to nasty weather, slow progress, and a broken jacket zipper. GPS, map, and compass were needed to get back down as our tracks had disappeared. It is easy to see why people have died trying to get to Muir or Paradise in a whiteout.
