      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] Shuksan - sulphide + pyramid 1/22/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Shuksan - sulphide + pyramid

 

Date: 1/22/2010

 

Trip Report:

I left the TH a little late ~8:30, not to stoked about the cold I had woken up with.

 

Summited in the warm windless afternoon. I skiied the pyramid chute from ~15 feet below the summit (too much rime ice on the lip of the ridge to ski from exact summit) lots of soft variable and rime in the chute, then crust-variable conditions down the Sulphide, but there were fun turns had.

 

Here is a recent arial pic of the upper route, taken by John Scurlock on the 19th of Jan. Thanks John!

I didn't take too many pics, just a few on the summit.

Looks like a great trip - could you drive to the trailhead and were you able to skin from the lot?

 

Thanks
