      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!

was up there last weekend. going up after a clear night it was firm and fine. going down after it had rained significantly below 9k, the lower we went the more postholing there was, and we were coming down from muir at 7am or something.

 

my take is that if moving in the early hours it will be fine, as the forecast is awesome i think it will chill nicely and firm up each night.

This is the forecast so far for the coming weekend. Sorta sounds like we have a 50/50 chance of making it:

 

SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY...MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF

SHOWERS. SNOW LEVEL 9000 FEET.
