      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!

Which mtn?

Recommended Posts

So I have done some climbing in the past (been a few years), but my daughter and I want to climb either Baker or Adams this summer. I am looking for some input as to which one will be easiest and least technical? Maybe not either of those, but something else....

you probably want to do adams, especially as the summer goes on, it is more and more of a walkup (to the point that last september i ran up it on an unexpected day off work no crampons or ice ax required)

I would also recommend Adams. The snow field does not have crevasses, it is non technical, however earlier in the season you may want to have at least ice ax and preferably crampons. Besides, my son loves to play and learn to use ice ax, so he typically takes one with him anyway. On Baker you may be dealing with a glacier and crevasses...
