      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!

Denali - South Buttress

Recommended Posts

I have a trip planned to Denali beginning June 1 to attempt the South Buttress and was looking for some beta. We are heading in from the Ruth and was wondering about any info on the glacier. Also wondering about how much/what protection, how much rope needed, good camp sites, and anything else you want to pass along. Thanks for the info!

In addition to the excellent resources noted above; there are I believe two, guidebooks which detail the route, approach, etc on Denali's South Buttress. It appears you may be well served to check them out.

 

My experience with the route is that it can be at times somewhat 'wind prone.'

 

Best of luck.
