      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!

What's the condition of D.C.? Are most of the crevases exposed? I'm thinking of going in a few weeks, any beta would be appreciated.

Hey I was up there last weekend.. I didnt climb but I did talk to some guys that were coming down.. I hiked up to Muir. It seems that above Muir when the hard rains came they got 3-4 feet of new snow and that was a few days before. ANd they coudnt make it couse of avy conditions. But they said the groups that were trying to summit on That sunday would probaly make it he wasnt shure though. and he said most crevasses were exposed but wasnt shure because of the new snow.

My party of 3 got lucky with a brief weather window & we summitted Sunday 9/2 via the DC route. It was windy and cold above 12k', with strong gusts and lots of spindrift, but clear & beautiful (it turned crappy Sunday night, and I doubt anyone summitted Monday). The route itself is not in great shape, with very little snow left on the cleaver and rotten snowbridges on the lower glaciers (we saw 2 guys climb most of the route unroped, which was scary to watch).
