      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!

first ascent [TR] Gunsight Peaks- West Face & South Ridge 7/10

Recommended Posts

On the morning of the 8th, we set out from the Agnes Creek trail, and climbed to the Chickamin Glacier where we set up camp for a few days in the "Patagonia of the North Cascades."

 

Beautiful photos. Very enticing.

 

A friend and I are planning a trip into the area for next summer. You guys made to the Chikamin pretty fast. Any approach hints you'd like to share to avoid unnecessary shrubbery?

Downey/Bachelor Creek is more or less brush free the whole way.

 

Agreed - Probably the easiest way in. Do-able in two days.

Whoa! That is impressive. When we did Tupshin and Devore, I was worried about your scampering 5th class,, but not so worried anymore.

 

Gunsight is # 134. Maybe I will be satisfied with the first hundred.
