      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!

[TR] Mt Ellinor - winter route 4/28/2007

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Ellinor - winter route

 

Date: 4/28/2007

 

Trip Report:

Seattle Mountaineers scramble, party of five.

Parked above the lower TH around 08:45, took the shortcut trail from the bend in the road up to the upper TH. Encountered maybe 100 yds of icy packed snow on the upper part of the trail, nothing too serious just took a little extra care, otherwise no terrain problems at all. Snow in the chute was in good condition, no avalanche danger, no ice, good step-kicking snow. Mostly cloudy but no precipitation; the sun broke out briefly while on the summit, around 12:30. The 1000' glissade made for a quick return trip.

 

Approach Notes:

Road clear to bend @ 3000', above lower TH.

It was nice to see you guys at the top (we were the party of 11). You looked much better suited than the bluejeans and tank tops we saw coming up on our way down. Hope you were amused by the demo for our first timers. Great day!!!

(nice tr)

judging from the 15 cars I saw parked at the base of the spur road up to the upper TH on 5-5-07, I'd say that road is not yet clear.
