      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!

It was hot as shit saturday. Sweatin' my ass off on the slog, and barely escaped the mashed potatoes on the down... Left t-line at 5am, back at the car by 1pm....

 

Sweet ride from hogsback to about 9000' where it became windblown crap shit until the palmer lift.. Then you had to deal with the McShredders in crap core mogulled junk mixed with douche bag antics.

Sat. had a great bootpack up the entire route. The snow got sloppy as soon as the sun hit it, but it was nice for most of the morning. Left at 4 am back at car around noon. The walk down was a bake-your-brains-out affair though.

Yeah, it was a scorcher...

 

I checked the timberline web site on Sun. at 7am... WTF!! 41ºF @ 6AM!!! I would be curious of the snow conditions that day. Most likely it was like skiing on one huge slurpee...

Anyone have any recent photos of I-rock? Either side. Curious how conditions have changed over the last couple weeks and whether there's any ice on the north side.

 

thanks

The best I can do is the first picture I posted in this thread. I-Rock is right behind my riding partners head. I know, his big assed noggin is obscuring the north side, but I recall that it was all rock this weekend, and it was fukin' HOT too. So, I doubt that there is actually any ice on the thing, but I could be wrong.
