      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!

I will summit no if ands or buts I have time lots of time and I will heed the MT but I will bend its will.

 

Am I the only one who think that ex-military folks make for scary climbers??? They're all hoorah to go storm the mountain but don't know a crevasse from an ass crack. Toughness and balls are great and all but they won't save you from an avalanche or a fall.

 

No offense Tony - I'm sure you're a great guy and thanks for your service in Iraq. But seriously, there's no reason to get yourself killed back here at home.

What the hell... Hundreds of people climb it each year, no problem. Just be careful, and have fun. Let us know how it goes.

 

generally people don't do their first ascent in Winter, and, if they do, they actually know what they are getting into.

i'd prefer not to read about another needless death on the mountain... with the accompanying news media bashing foolish climbers wasting thousands of $$$ on rescues, calls for MLUs, and a pound of flesh from responsible climbers. but, hey, that's just me.

Oh come on - even I'VE been up there. I've tried several winter ascents in the last couple of years too, but the weather never cooperated. Haven't made it in the winter yet. I'll keep trying. But I digress. Are you saying this guy can't climb? What makes you think he's guarunteed to die up there? Just because he's never been up there before, and is making his first ascent in winter? That doesn't mean certain death! The guy's a vet for god's sake! He's a big boy! He can make his own decisions, and I'm sure he will!

The guy gives the appearance of being really naive. If he really knows what he's getting in to, and is prepared to hunker down for several days in a snow cave, well, hey, all the more power to him.

A cornucopia of sage advice from a guy who's barely out of the Mounties Climbing course himself. I love this site.

 

Choose your weather window carefully Tony and have fun.

Oh, and Tony, watch out for people with little to no substantial experience who seem to be more than a little willing to give you copious amounts of negative feedback regarding your plans. If you get the feeling that there's a school marm in the room, you can be assured that they don't really climb. And be sure to check the WA state avalanche forecast before you go. Have fun.

I would think even hiking up to Muir in the next week would be a bad idea. The PWL that's out there right now would cover pretty much everything above Paradise. Any snowfall right now, is bad news. Not to be a "Negative Ned" or anything, but the conditions right now dictate staying away from anything where a hoar frost layer could have developed. Stay safe and use this time to better your skills in a safe atmosphere.

Ask at the ranger at the gate what the avalanche danger is wherever you are going. And check it out a few days in a row here before you go...
