      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!

I know for Rainier June/July should be about perfect and the trail should be established above Muir. As for the GT I am not sure.

If you're aiming for rock routes - the Tetons are best in late July. Devil's Tower has a voluntary closure during the month of June.

 

For the Grand consider the Exum to check things out. If conditions are good then you can go for either the N ridge or the N face. Having fun -- sounds like a great trip!
