      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 Ledges

Recommended Posts

Emailed Mike Gauthier to ask him about the conditions and he says the route is in GREAT SHAPE In fact the whole upper Mt. That being said anyone interested in the Gib Ledges Mon/Tue or either day for a straight through ( short rests here and there)

Thanks Dan, nice to hear of the conditions are in shape. This weekend would be cool with a nice weather window, but I will be in Europe.

TTT [Cool]

hey guys!

yes, i took a good look at the mountain today after all that squabble over where one should ski on rainier...

to me, it looks as though it rained pretty heavily up to nearly 10,500 feet. it was quite warm yesterday and rained over 2 inches at longmire!

today, the weather was PERFECT!!! very, very warm at paradise, 68 degrees reported!!! it's suppose to remain nice for a few days. quite frankly the upper mountain looked really good for climbing. i saw solid snow across the entire gib ledge. from paradise, i couldn't see what it was like above camp comfort however?!

as for other routes, i would guess that the glacier routes are either still quite broken, or riddled with recently hidden crevasses. play it cool if you go.

success cleaver looked totally awesome; it's probably a GREAT time to do it... easy approach, perfect amounts of snow on the ridge where you need it...

wish i were around to take advantage of this. i you go for it, have a great trip, enjoy the relative solace, and be safe.

Thanks for the report Mike! If you wouldn't mind posting another conditions update a little closer to the weekend I know more than a few would be appreciative. Like Rodeo, I was thinking of trying to give it a go over this long weekend coming up. And whomever may have climbed it recently your input would be cool too. Thanks much!
