      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!

Have you ever put a crampon through your hand while soloing steep ice? Have you ever attempted to duffersitz on a free rappel?

 

Just curious

I have January 9th, 25th and 29th off. Looking for a partner to do some BC skiing with/ climb Hood if conditions warrant. Prefer to do it without an overnighter due to my schedule.

Josh,

Better watch the weather real close before making the trip, and if it looks good then still keep a sharp eye out cuz it can go from great to shit about as fast as you can get down. Even a weak warm front moving through is enough to bring 60-80mph winds near the peak along w/ freezing rain (last weekend). Avi danger is pretty high these days. We have a lot more bad weather than good in winter, so the odds of picking a random weekend and finding good weather and snow conditions are not in your favor. Be prepared for total white-out. Good Luck.

Ya I know, which is why im not going. White outs are interesting to me....for the first few minutes anyways. I also dont have the luxury to just go anyday, and i live in seattle so its not quite that east to just go, so a little planning is necisary, wheather pending is always a part of my plan though.
