      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!

Recommended Posts

just for the record!!

greg moo- usa,maximo henostroza-peru,marek wencel

usa/poland climbed hurascaran sur 22,205ft.this was the first accent of 2002.the weather was exelent.snow conditions very good up to c-1.

from c-1 to c-2 mixed snow/ice 45-50% up the shutte and then traverse to the garganta.lots of

crust and sugar snow under.summit day 17 hrs due to more technical terain and no route being established.we encoutered ice up to 65% and deep

snow on flatter terain.after initial stay in huaraz (10.00ft)and some hikes around,it took us

8 days up and 2 days down.please do not take this climb as a walk-up,as john biggar,s book(the andes) suggest,s.over the past few years glacier

conditions are worse and worse.serious climb but fun.anyone interested in more details,please leave

me a note.lucky again marek

well,the last i checked on the web site.there was no box for expeditions.so mt rainier being high

up,would fit the profile for climbers being interested in high mountains.i just used common sense and shared the information.i stop there!

Good Job

They should add a section for climbers from the cascade area climbing outside of the country. Check your PM's.
