      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!

Mt Washington approach conditions?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the current conditions for Mt Washington? Specifically how much snow is still on the PCT or the North Ridge?

Thanks!

snow on the N ridge is a good thing - kicking steps up & plunge-stepping down beats the tedious late-season scramble.

 

however snow on the pct is not as nice, especially when snow cover on the pct causes you & your partner to miss it on the way back...though I wouldn't know anything about that first-hand of course.

7/10/08 Snow is patchy the entire way in. PCT is pretty clear...gets more continuous just before hitting the N Ridge climber's trail.

 

North Ridge route is clear of snow the entire way...but east side of ridge still has a good shelf of snow if you want to use it to bypass some of the scramble.
