      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!

Olympus in September?

Recommended Posts

I'll be returning to the northwest for a week or so around Sept. 18.


I know that's pretty late season, but Olympus via the Hoh trail has been on my mind for a long time. Is it even worth the trip out to the mountain that late in the season, or is the Blue Glacier likely to be so broken up to make it impassible?


Thanks for any beta!

I've climbed it as late as early October. You shouldn't have any problems--especially this year. The lower Blue will be bare ice and easy cramponing. The only issue might be the bergschrund at Crystal Pass, but I don't imagine it will be too bad.
