      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!

does anyone have info on access to the jones lake area? has anyone done the nw face of knight peak (kay/serl, '87)?

that route is unrepeated(?). probably best in spring.

jones lake - need 4wd but not high clearance. road to end of lake is overgrown. then follow avalanche chutes and creek beds to the base of the face. there is a photo of that somewhere on bivouac.com - search for Knight peak.

thanks for the info. seems difficult to believe that the route hasn't been repeated. based on the photo in the '87 CAJ, it looks like there is some room for more routes on the face. will probably make a foray next spring.

you might see an old man named fred beckey up there dragging some young climbers up one of those unclimbed lines. he was pretty keen on it last spring but the right snowpack stability never materialized.
