      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!

Mt. Redoubt Erupts

Recommended Posts

I hope this subsides so that flights to Anchorage aren't delayed in May/June. Could make life hard for climbers going to Alaska (e.g. me).

 

I'm also concerned about ash/etc in the air up there.

 

Anyone have any thoughtful/informed perspective on the implications of this volcano behavior on the upcoming climbing season up there?

Too soon to tell, but make certain you dig below the ash layer when you obtain snow for melting.

That was us picked up by TAT in the tordrillo's....pretty intense, and props to paul for making the pick up. The ash up there is a nightmare, but the skiing and climbing is world class

Here's a photo of the ash cloud that drifted across SouthCentral Alaska this past Saturday while we were out skiing. More pix here.
