      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!

Conditions on Brown Mtn. in Southern Cascades?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of trying to skin up Brown Mountain (from 140) this week to get a few turns in. Anyone know if there's enough snow covering the rocks up there?

There might be but I wouldn't count on it. I haven't bothered going up that way at all so no first hand knowledge of it.


A couple weeks ago somebody who drove over the pass told me it was very thin at pass elevations. We've had some storms since then but the snow level has been very high. In Klamath Falls it rained quite a bit over New Years eve and New years, not even close to snow. (About 4100' but on the dry shadow side.)


Crater Lake sounds like they have a decent amount, the rim area is in the vicinity of 6000'. And the brunt of some storms seems to have gone just enough north of 140 to make a difference between the pass and Crater Lake.


There's only one way to find out, of course. But I wouldn't expect much of a base, especially at the trailhead elevations.
