      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!

Rainier Partners needed

Recommended Posts

I am looking for partners for Rainier sometime between the 27th of August and the 4th of September. I made an attempt last weekend but we were turned around by bad weather.

 

I was thinking the DC route but am up for others.

 

I'd be up for a day hike or a multi day (would prefer day hike).

 

I have glacier travel/crevasse rescue skills and all necessary gear.

 

E-mail me at Mr_Clam00@hotmail.com if interested.

Note to potential partners: Mr Clam is one strong climber, as in he carried a full pack from Paradise to Muir last weekend in under 4 hrs, and I don't think he was really trying. That was after he got maybe 2hrs sleep the night before. Then two days later he solo'd up Colchuck Peak in about 45 min from the bottom of the snowfield. In the rain, with no ice tool, just an axe. Oh yeah, if you aren't familiar w/ current route conditions on Colchuck, it has a 60 degree bare ice section about 200' long. Then he ran down the snowfield, ran down the moraine, and ran back to the trailhead. Damn kid didn't even look tired. Mr Clam is one good guy and you'll be lucky to climb with him.
