      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!

I think when I did it C2C I left the trailhead at around 5 or 6 AM and I think it took me about 12 hours total, and I was of pretty average fitness. But is the road open to the trailhead? Take that into account.

 

Cheers!

Even if the snow has melted on the road to the trailhead the FS won't have cleared the fallen trees, so unless you want to do chainsaw work you will have about a 8-9 miles approach to the trailhead, which is assuming you can drive to the first large fallen tree, assuming no more have fallen recently.

Yeah there haven't been any reports of the trees being cleared yet and the GFNF website doesn't have any recent updates on the road with the last update being "closed by snow"
