      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!

Mt Garibaldi - Apr20-21

Recommended Posts

Good conditions for Mt Garibaldi, with white-outs coming and going and light snow falling mid-Sunday.

We approached from the north; the 3 lakes are still frozen, although you'll have to ski around part of the 2nd one.

The snow is good on the summit slope, the bergschrund is not opened yet.

The snow is crusty at lower elevation below 2000m, and there is no good skiing to be found in the trees.

Quite a few parties on the neve.

Too whited out to see Fern and co. on the South Arete of Atwell?

We woke up in the ping-pong ball yesterday behind the Gargoyles. Sounds like the north side was the place to be. Lots of breakable crust around Elfin and Paul Ridge.

It was blue sky started the summit slopes. We could see all high peaks (Castle T, Wedge, Mamquam, and Atwell of course), but didn't see a soul, although it looked like somebody built an igloo on Dalton Dome (?).

Its funny, from Wedge summit you cant see Garibaldi cause Castle Towers gets in the way. but from Garibaldi you can see Wedge sticking out over top of Castle Towers.
