      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

I am interested in doing the South Arete of Atwell/traverse to Garibaldi summit as soon as weather window opens. Does anyone have information on current conditions? Would be much appreciated. . . .

a much more mellow, but probably in condition (in May) route is the N ridge of Atwell. check out a good photo in Bivouac.com, search under Atwell. Brohm Ridge approach is shorter than elfin lakes.

Dru, and wotan of ballard:

Thank you for the replies--was a bit concerned, especially in this low snow year. (Fears confirmed. . . unfortunately). Do either of you know about conditions for North Face of Dalton Dome/traverse to Garibaldi summit?

probably not in the greatest shape right now with a meter of slushy new not yet bonded. but give it a week or two and it might be good.

expect some partially open crevasses on the anniversary, and a lot of sloppy crud snow. I was up there a few wks ago and joffre glacier had some patches of blue ice showing in the seracs.

Dru:

Once again, thank you for the beta. Weather permitting, we may make the drive up on the weekend of the 18th, to take a closer look. If it looks good, we'll give it a go. And if we do, I'll give you the report.
