      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!

[TR] Mt Maude - South Shoulder 6/28/2008

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Maude - South Shoulder

 

Date: 6/28/2008

 

Trip Report:

This weekend George, Karen, Doug, and my self Kevin climbed Mt Maude. I have been wanting to climb this mountain even since my failed attempt of November 10, 2003. Well this time we were greeted to wonderful hot weather and not a foot of fresh snow that came down last time. Any how the route was very easy, class 2. It appeared from the register that we were the second party to the mountaain this year. The first party did a decent ski of the North face (bas ass ski route). Anyhow since the weather was so awesome we spent the night on top. The sunset and sunrise were wonderful, and I liked the tundra flowers. Well here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Did you take a peak over the N face, by any chance?

 

Yes! The person who summited precious to us stated in the redister that they were going to ski the north face. So we took a look at it. Clumbing the north face of this peak definately looks fun, and not too hard either!

as of sunday 7/7, the N face was still in shape to ski (and climb)--Sky posted our trip on turnsallyear. looks like it had at least a week or so of life in it for a climber.
