      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] Mt Davis - South route 5/27/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Davis - South route

 

Date: 5/27/2009

 

Trip Report:

:wave: Jim, John and myself decided to climb Mt Davis 7051 feet last Saturday. We scrambled through the forest working our way around a few cliff bands then when we got near the main South ridge we decided to skirt the ridge on the East side and try the Ease ridge. Well this turned out to be an impass doe to a huge cliff on the East side of the mountain, so we headed back down and went up the standard South ridge. This minor detour was great because it allowed us to have an elevation gain of 7,400 feet for the 13 hour round trip day. Anyhow the views were great, and I have attached some photos!

Gear Notes:

Two 30m double ropes, three pickets, some nuts (did not use), lots of energy!

 

Approach Notes:

The bushes were not bad at all on this route.

Did you find the summit register. It's really a trip looking at all the old entries. That peak doesn't see a whole lot of ascents.

I don't think so because the immediate summit area was snow free, there was a large cornice to the North East, but doubt the register was there.

Earlier in the month I believe there was a group of 10 or so on the peak. I believe Fay "The Queen of the Cascades I understand" was with that group. Maybe since there group was so large they filled up the register and are in the process of bringing a new one. It was a nice climb with a wonderful view of Luna framed by the huge summit cornices.
