      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] MRNP - Carbonation 4/19/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: MRNP - Carbonation

 

Date: 4/18-19/2009

 

Trip Report:

Dave, Pete, Sky, Eric and me set out for some fun on the north side of the dawg. We started from the Mowich Lake road closure at about 8 miles from the lake. Skinning was not to difficult in the soft wet snow. We got up to the Spray Park area and set up camp under a veiled Rainier.

 

The lenticular grew overnight and in the morning it became apparent that our ambitious plans would have to wait for another day.

We skiined up to the highpoint of Spray Park area, and skiied a bueatiful steepish 1500' line down to the Carbon Glacier. The glacier is looking much more covered than my last ski attempt on LR last July when it was in a state of total chaos.

On our way back we got some great snow down from the pass above Mowich Lake. The ski back down the road went surpriseingly quickly despite it's very low angle.

 

Adding up the miles it came out to be around 30 round trip, but it really did seem like less, i'm glad I taped my toes and heels though.

 

Had a blast. Thanks guys!
