      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!

Hope Ice (lack of) conditions Jan 20

Recommended Posts

Nothing in around Hope itself just yet. Maybe wed/Thurs if it stays cold but nothing yet. Mousetrap is open and running.


Took a good look at Sumallo Bluffs while driving back from ski trip to Manning. There is ice there, but also way too much fresh snow. Buszowski/Kippan is completely white with snow and no visible ice bottom to top. :(


The curtain on Landmark gully is blue ice but not hanging as low as on the FA.


The steep unclimbed pillar way, way up the bluffs across from 19 Mile Creek is in (WI5?) but looked like a heinous wallow & avvy hazard to get to.


The Mess looks like avalanche death waiting to happen.
