      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!

Recommended Posts

Im heading up the South Side route tonight at midnight. I'm new to the whole game and am going with another climber who is somewhat experienced. Any recent reports? Ok conditions?

forecast for a chance of showers/snow up there tonight through tomorrow, w/ a worsening forecast into saturday, so don't be surprised if it gets super shitty and/or you can't see a thing - you got a plan for navigating back down through soup? if so and you're comfortable w/ it, enjoy and see how high you get!

Thanks! I will make sure to re-arrange plans. It looks like sunday night/monday morning might be better for my first ascent. Does this make more sense?

Just got off the phone w/ Fred Beckey, he was coming down here today to climb Hood via the Wy'East but decided the weather was too crappy. Maybe Sun/Mon if the current forecast holds and if new snowfall is light. Wise words from the man who did the FA of Yocum Ridge.

Good powder conditions on the north side. 30-40 cm with the wind in some lee areas.
