      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!

[TR] Red Mt--Snoq. Pass - SW Ridge 3/21/2009

Trip: Red Mt--Snoq. Pass - SW Ridge

 

Date: 3/21/2009

 

Trip Report:

Photos on Flickr Click "Slideshow"

The Mercer Park+Ride team of five enjoyed the "Transitional" Snow pack while skinning in past the masses in Commonwealth Basin. Summiting the steep Red Mt in 4+ hrs uphill, boot stepping the last 400 feet to a great summit. The views were smacktacular. The ski-down from summit wasn't as terrifying as we all thought it was going to be. We had to work the crap down low hard, but we really enjoyed it . Bring on Spring!There should be a tr on TAY soon from Lisa and or Victor. Nice skiing with David and Jamie too!

 

Gear Notes:

axe, cramps recommended.

nice pics.

 

we skied Arrowhead yesterday, no photos as i forgot the camera. it was a beautiful sunny day and the conditions were actually pretty decent. there was a firm crust up high that we mostly stayed on top of. down lower the crust was firmer and the snow was more corn like.

 

All in all a good day, i am ready for some spring too.
