      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!

I always cringe of going there because of the road. Anyone been up there lately? Is the road to parking lot cleared of snow and ice?

Can you start skinning from the parking lot?

Here's what I did in my Hyandi Pony last March.


1. Drive up road until you can't go any further.


2. Park.


3. Start skinning (or walking).


4. Stick thumb out to any passing vehicles in hope of a ride.


Seriously though, I've ben up there a few times in various cars that don't/won't make it past the turnoff to the parking lot. Usually you can just hitch a ride, if not, well its a long walk, but you're in it for the exercise yeah?
