      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!

Anyone been up to the brothers yet? Any special conditions? access?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

You might try doing a search on NWhikers.net or WTA.org for Lena Lake or the Brothers. Sounds like the trail is snow free to lower lena lake right now. No problems/special concerns I can think of up there. Have fun!

I think this is a great time of year to go up there; when I did it in october, it was all scree and brush on the approach and rockfall in the final couloir. I couldn't find a summit register for the south summit, but I'm pretty sure we found the right spot.

I did an attempt a few weeks ago. The trail to Lena is clear of snow and blow downs. From Lena to base camp is a much different story. There are quite a few blow downs and about 6' of snow at camp. I'm sure there is less snow by now but the down trees won't be gone.

We got turned around by weather and avy danger at 5,400' on our climb. hopefully conditions will be better for you when you go.

 

good luck
