      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!

Winter Climbing

Recommended Posts

OK, so here's the deal...one of my climbing partners is not real excited about winter climbing, option 2 does not have the gear for it and option 3 can only go on the weekends. None of these are really working for me. So I am looking for someone to do some winter climbing with. Nothing too extreme, unless you won't mind a rookie (I've been climbing for 2 years Helens (spring 1, summer 2), Hood (south side x2), Adams (Mazama glacier).

I am really wanting to climb, but the whole partner with similar enthusiasm thing is turning out to be a hard thing to find. My goal was, and still is Aconcagua and Denali, and if those go well I would love to try Cho Oyu as my "Dream Climb". Anywho, neither of my climb partners share this desire and so here I am...all dressed up and no place to go. Some of the routes I would like to consider this winter are: Hood (Wy'East, Leuthold Couloir, Cooper Spur), Adams (North ridge, West ridge, Northwest ridge), and the Fuhrer Thumb on Rainier next spring. As you can see I want to progress. I work m-f but can get a day or two off with short notice i.e. when conditions are good, so I am looking for someone to hook up with.

I have some gear (rope 9mm, 2 ice screws, snow pickets, biners, draws) and I have the desire, now I just need a good solid, reliable partner. Or someone with the same number of screws loose rolling around in his/her cranium.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
