      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!

Gib Chute

Recommended Posts

As of 5/24...the route's in great shape at the moment. Lots of snow...some pockets of slab in the chute, but with current cold temps, was solid and we didn't experience any ice/rockfall. A few holes leading up to the chute. No route marked above Gib, but there are some old steps. Took the Ingraham Direct down; was in good shape. A few bridges around 12k were somewhat thin, but OK. Standard route is direct and marked well.

 

Made for a great 9+ hr climb from Paradise. Had one of those little foxes from around Alta Vista follow me up from Paradise...and it ended up mooching food from around tents at Muir. Bummer the weather changed for the weekend...
