      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

Anyone have any first or second hand info on how things have been up there? Any recommendations on places to get current info on the web. I check cbc.ca for weather but I am sure there is a better spot. Any help and or info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dru. Probably going to camp at Applebee if its not raining too hard and maybe a few nights over by the Howsers. Ill check the weather link for a comparison. Do you remember which book Gimli is described in or any other source of info for the South Ridge. I know there was a topic on this but I am too lazy to look for it.

 

Thanks much

Just got back from a six day trip. The weather was marginal. Snow every morning save one. Ticked the Cain on Bugaboo. My buddy ticked McTech. One team pushed through the snow and iced cracks to do the NE ridge on Bug. Lotsa folks were bailing due to weather. We left Tues. just as the first t-storm of the trip hit. Lotsa graupel, hail, snow, and some rain the last week. But hey it may be getting better. (ps the big hose looked in last mon. 8\6)

Just got back from a nice little climbing trip. Made a stop in the Bugs and got the W. Ridge of Pigeon and the Beckey/Chouinard done, went to Valhallas and did that route on Gimli and then checked out the Cooper/Hiser route on Chimney Rock in Idaho. Conditions were good all the way around. Our last day in the Bugs things were getting cloudy but it has been several days since we were there. Good times.
