      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!

Fuhrer

13 - I got a good look at it last weekend when trying to get up the Wilson Headwall (we didn't even make it, btw). According to the Rangers, it has been the most successfully ascended route in the Kautz Alpine Zone this year. Here is a cut and past from my other thread:

The Fuhrer Finger looked good, but we saw two teams that tried it, and both said when the sun hits it on the top, it turned to bad slush, even at 13,000'. There are some precarious looking snow bridges crossing the Wilson Glacier to get to it though. The 'schrund under the Fuhrer's Thumb is open now, which scares most people away.

Best of luck to you.
