      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!

Glacier Peak questions

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Wondering current conditions for Glacier Peak. I read all the recent trip reports. We will be hitting the mountain this coming monday-wednesday. Wondering if there is anything recent in the last few days. Planning on heading up the From the North Sauk Trail. Is the road passable to the trailhead? Are there any major creek crossings to be aware of?

 

I was planning on avoiding rope travel. Is this in shape for unroped travel? Is it not preferable to head straight up Disappointment Peak? Or should we head around to the Cool Glacier? If so, is the glacier fairly safe for unroped travel? I do have glacier travel experience. I just don't know the condition of the glaciers/route.

 

 

 

Thanks,

Thatcher

The road to the North Sauk is just fine. My trip was a few weeks back. I didn't see any crevasse issues on the Gerdine or Cool glaciers at the time.

Climbed Glacier unroped last Saturday. There are crevasses opening up on the Cool, but they were all very apparent. Left early from camp (4am) and everything was solid.
