      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] North Twin Sister - West Ridge 6/19/2009

Recommended Posts

Trip: North Twin Sister - West Ridge


Date: 6/19/2009


Trip Report:

Too much rain and we turned around at 5000'. No pics either, but wanted to update peeps on approach conditions etc.


The Mosquito Lake road bridge over the Middle Fork Nooksack is closing Monday 6.22.09 until April 2010. Judging by the equipment in place, it looks as if they are building a new bridge. So plan accordingly. (Come in through Deming, not Acme.)


The logging roads have been freshly graded. (They were doing it while we were there.) They're in really good shape. Someone noted last year that they regraded the turn off road at 2.5 miles. True. There is also a nice newer bridge over the creek on the regraded road. Everything else seemed status quo.




Gear Notes:



Approach Notes:

Freshly graded roads.

Pete- We skied the north face of north twin a week ago. We had coverage right from the top all the way into the woods below the face. The snow seemed to be going fast though on the lower half traversy part of the face, and in the bowl below, get it soon!
