      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!

Leavenworth or Yosemite weather march 22

Recommended Posts

Putting together a trip spring break (last week of March). We'd love to hit up Yosemite, but looks like 9 days of sun is unlikely.

 

With all this snow, I have no idea how much of leavenworth will be open at that time. Anybody been over there yet and seen how much snow is up the Icicle, Pinnacles, or at Castle Rock?

 

Bummer about Tieton being closed for eagle nesting.

 

Other than Smith and Vantage, which will be fine, and Red Rocks (too far) anybody have suggestions for dry rock?

Best Spots for Dry Rock in March:

 

Yosemite:

Shhhhh, keep this one quiet.

Everything on the base of the Nose, and Lower should be dry. Really Cold nights though.

 

Vantage / Smith / Redrocks:

Obviously you allready know this one.

 

Pinnacles:

Think Vantage with Poison Oak. Decent Sport and some uninspiring trad routes. Some exceptions to the rule though. PM me for a list of favorites.

 

J Tree:

Good, but shorter than everyone lets on. Oh yeah, and too far south.

 

So I guess I will be seeing you at Vantage. ;)

red rocks.

Ltown south facing good but some snow in shady areas. your best bet would be Junction crags area.
