      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!

Emmons this weekend

Recommended Posts

Myself and a few friends are trying the Emmons route this weekend. This will be the first time up Rainier for me. Given the recent weather I'm looking for thoughts on avalanche, crevasse and route finding dangers. Any thoughts? The weather looks to be clearing up a tad for saturday and sunday so I'm hopeful.

Good Man!

I was on the South side last weekend and can tell you with a forecast for partly cloudy skys we had thunder, lightning, snow, ice pellets and the best was the HIGH WIND. It was great! Make sure you take the extra time to tie down your tent/fly.

We burried our treking poles as dead men and one was bent when we dug it out!

I think I have heard camp schurman (sp?) is even windier than Muir - have fun, if the weather turns on you, just hang out and enjoy it.
