      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!

Bugaboos conditions

Recommended Posts

Just came down yesterday. The snow up there is really good right now, easy walking on soft slush. Some of the routes still have snow and ice on the summits, with the upcoming hot weather I would expect this will start to melt out. Walking into East creak is chill, no ax required.

 

Rock climbs around hut (Crescent, Bugaboo etc) are dry and in good shape and dry. The hut is now full, bring a tent and join the party at the campground.

I'd like to add that I saw someone fall into the schrund last week (some folks are rapping it now)...and another person fall all the way down from Bugaboo/Snowpatch Col and then walk away unscathed.

I think it would take incredible "talent" to fall into almost non-existent schrund.

Nate, i'll email you pics from B-C in a couple of days

Crampons?

so far there was no need for them. we walked even to east creek without them. as the matter of fact in the afternoon they would be more liability then help due to balling. of course with hot weather predicted all week things will change rather quickly and most likely they will be required to get up and down the S-B col.

Went up the Bugaboo-Snowpatch col 8-11-10. Used crampons, schrund is opened up, most parties are rapping down the col off bolted stations on climber's left (30m apart). Rap stations climbers right have been removed.
