      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!

We got to Muir hut Saturday and eventually it filled to capacity. We were to do the Gib route and others, the Ingraham direct. There was even a party camping up at the beehive. But 3am Sunday was howling whiteout and we all crawled back in the sack. Everyone returned to Paradise later that day.

Only one strong climber on Friday did a solo summit up the Gib route, enjoying perfect route and weather conditions. cool.gif" border="0

Yeah. Nice weather until Friday night. A lenticular formed about 9PM and was followed by a little snow. Not bad up to 11000 but it would have been white out conditions above. There was probably some serious cross loading above the chute. But I saw it all from below so I don't know jack. rolleyes.gif" border="0
