      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. Ellinor - Regular Route 3/21/2010

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Ellinor - Regular Route

 

Date: 3/21/2010

 

Trip Report:

My bro, his wife Michelle, myself and our friend Erin were all out in the Olympics for the weekend and decided to head up Mt. Ellinor for the day. We started kinda early and drove up the the lower trailhead. The road is still pretty snowy and an AWD is required to get up there. We made the hike up to the camping area at the base of the coulior (about 2.5 miles to here). Here Michelle and Erin decided to head back down the trail because they had the dogs and they didn't have ice axes. Mur and I sprinted up to the summit- up the coulior and up there in an hour. The wind on the summit was steady. We took some pictures and headed down via glissade. It was a fast descent and took us about an hour to get all the way down.

Gear Notes:

pants for glissade, ice ax, no crampons needed this time.
