      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!

Free nearly all days of July-Sept.; Easy/Moderate

Recommended Posts

 

Posted something similar a few months ago, and am wondering if some others might also be interested given that plans might be better known now. Finished grad school and taking all of the summer off to climb.

 

I've got a couple of years of experience, though mostly in the northeast where we don't have glaciers, but it does get kinda chilly... Did Baker via Easton, Beckey Route, and Silver Star in a course a couple years ago, and am looking to get a bunch of mileage on relatively straightforward easy/moderate glacier routes in July, with some easy alpine rock thrown in for good measure.

 

Ideas: Any of the easy routes on Baker, Sulphide or Fischer Chimneys on Shuksan, Sahale, Eldorado, Hood, straightforward routes on Adams, possibly shooting for DC or Emmons on Rainier in late July. Also very interested in getting mileage on easy alpine rock; started leading on gear at the end of last summer, and looking to lead a good amount of easy routes this summer. Happy to follow lots too with a more experienced leader.

Olympus, Glacier, and Shuksan are at the top of my list. Work is rather flexible and I am probably about at your level. Let me know if you are interested.

I will be in Wash July 14-24. Meeting a small group to do the DC on the 20th. Would really like to do fisher chimneys before then. also open to other routes. No plans as of yet. If there is something you are planning on doing and need a partner just let me know. I think we may have one climber spot open on our Rainier permit if you're interested too. jbarronton@yahoo.com

It sounds like we have a similar experience level in the mountains, though I have not rock climbed with gear, just sport. I would be willing to follow and clean though. I top rope at about 10c - 10d and lead sport at 5.8. Your goals for this summer are right on with mine.
