      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!

Rainier/Baker May 2009 (partner(s) needed)

Recommended Posts

Will be driving up to Washington after visiting a friend in California. I am looking to do Rainier/Baker but would also like to take a look at Adams, and another route I haven't done on Mt. Hood. Would also be up for cllimbing at Smith Rock.

 

I am in need in partners, as I don't know anyone in the area (I live in Boulder, CO). So if you'd like to plan a trip or let me tag on to yours, I'd much appreciate it.

I am looking at going up Mt. Rainier in a day and then skiing down in May----Kinda a long push---must be in good shape---depending on the snow conditions and approach the Emmons glacier may take up to 8-9 hours +/- to hit the top---should be a fun Ski.

 

I live in Bend would be happy to meet you at Smith or Trout creek.

I went up and made an attempt at rainier last saturday. CLEAR BLUE SKIES!! But blowing a sustained 40mph. Made it up to 8500 and realized my sinus infection was only getting worse. Turned tucked tail and snowshoed back to paradise. Plan on heading back up in 2 weeks to take on gib ledges and board down. Give me a call and mabey we can put something together.

Hey BS

You're planning and Easton glacier climb in May. What dates? I've done this climb twice already. One of my favorites. Are you camping at top of railroad grade? How many are going with you. Maybe my son and I can hook up and join?

I am looking for a climbing partner for Rainier May 29 through May 31. I will do any route. I am especially interested in ski mountaineering, but am open to hiking up as well. Please contact me if you are interested. fmluyet at yahoo.com

I am looking to attempt Ptarmigan Ridge this year. My current partner is out of commission due to an old injury flaring up. I live in California but will be checking the weather forecasts for a high pressure system and will buy a ticket last minute.

 

I have fairly extensive high altitude and alpine experience.
