      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!

Washington Pass Conditions

Recommended Posts

Hola:

 

I am curious what the conditions for this area are, if anyone has been out there lately, trail conditions, snow coverage on formations...water drainage, will it be fun to climb there at this time of year, can I pull the crux on X route, you know everything that one needs to make a determination for a road trip.?. Thanks for your time.

FYI, the highway will still be closed for ~ 1 more month. I'd imagine there is a lot of snow on the routes still. You could probably climb some steep sunny stuff if you were inclined to put forth the effort. You could also climb that coulouir on SEWS>

or the Early Winters Couloir or the Liberty Bell E. Face couloir or Cutthroat East Face or Silverstar or Whistler Mtn East Couloir or...get the idea that rock isn't the only thing around Wa Pass.

No car yet, but I am learning how to drive...ha!..if it were only as easy as climbing. I have the 17th thru the end of the month off and am trying to get something big in. We'll see. Any other suggestions?

go lay siege to the stuart range dude - do all the spring routes - ice cliff and stuart glacier couliors on stuart (maybe razorback and west ridges too - hell, even the n ridge might be in shape for you), tool on over to lake colchuck and do the couliors on colchuck, then maybe take on triple couliors on dragontail
