      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] Mt Snoqualmie - Enigma Couloir 4/18/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Snoqualmie - Enigma Couloir


Date: 4/18/2009


Trip Report:

Just posting the key facts...


We snowshoed the entire gully. The bottom was a mix of hard snow with occasional deposits of powder. By the time we hit the top it was a wallowfest of mostly loose snow that wouldn't hold body weight very well. We had to self belay with our ice axes and shove our other hands into the snow to maintain three points of contact. Kind of fun actually, but it was tiring plowing our way up. On the descent down the normal route, we were sinking in to our knees even with snowshoes.


Two more weeks of consolidation will make this a much more fun trip.


Gear Notes:

Snowshoes, ice axe, crampons (unused)
