      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!

Baker, BC interior

Recommended Posts

A week ago I drove back through Transcanda- no ice to speak of along the highway, besides the usual Rockies. Pretty much nothing worth climbing east of Field. Maybe one good line on Mt Hunter, but Golden was pretty bare, Rogers Pass already had quite a bit of snow.

Went to Baker, a ton of snow, but both Pan Dome and Tabasco Kid were non existent. Some icicles here and there, but mostly snowed up rock.

Rockies has some good ice, so at the moment is your only real option (flying recommended). I would say there might be some stuff high up along Duffy Lake Road, but most likely is buried under 4m of freshies.

I kind of doubt even that, it hit 10C in Lillooet the other day and was raining right to the summit of the Duff on Friday (on top of the giant snowpack). Just doesn't seem to have been cold enough to generate roadside ice yet even at the Rambles. Also the ground is being insulated by the snow instead of freezing so all the creeks and seeps are still running water :(
