      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!

Mt Washington access

Recommended Posts

This picture is from 2.5 weeks ago (May 30). My guess is that you'll still find snow covering some of the PCT.

I'm just guessing here. Probably wants to hike the PCT to access the Mt. Probably feels like if there's any snow on route (probably isnt as it slid off), that's manageable or they can bail, but doesn't want to have to both posthole and routefind on snow all the way in.

Yep- reading my mind. PCT = easy access for a peak that doesn't really validate waging war for access.

 

I figure(d) the route would be clean enough but the snow would likely linger in the forest. That pic changes my mind about everything though- the lake is still frozen! I'll come back when it's a clearer shot.

 

JoeMack- THANKS for posting the pic!
