      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!

I have plenty of mountaineering experience myself, but am relatively new to ice. I am going to school in moscow idaho, but will be home on winter break from mid december to mid january. If you are interested, i was also thinking about a trip to bozeman in early january to climb in hyalite canyon. send me a PM if you are interested.

Same here, solid mountaineering experience, relatively new to ice, but naturally gifted - Ah ah! Seriously though, I'm free weekends and from dec 20 to jan 2nd and very interested in getting more ice experience this winter. I've led easy alpine ice pitches (AI2 or so). I have all personal gear and three ice screws (for now). I'd like to get to Haylite, Cody and Lillooet this winter, in addition to closer venues, like Baker, Leavenworth, etc.

Send me a PM if interested, and I'll get you my contact info.

 

Cheers! - Alex.

Same here with everyone else! I'd love to meet up with some partners for ice climbing this winter. I have alpine experience and one season of ice, I lead up to about WI3. PM me and we can talk about meeting up if you are interested.

I found the best way to get better at ice climbing is to do lots of ice climbing. The Bozeman Ice Fest provides a great opportunity to do tons of laps, work on technique and attend clinics. They haven't updated it for 2010 but can find more info here http://www.montanaalpineguides.com/bozemanicefestival/schedule.html

 

Or come out early and tick off some classics.

 

Don't want to drive to MT? Come to Portland and get those muscles moving again on the drytool routes.

I'll second the Bozeman Ice Fest as a great way to get your feet wet. For an hour more driving you can end up in the Canadian Rockies, where instead of 30 m routes you get 300 m routes of all grades.

Lets hook-up and go sometime. I am interested in climbing Alpamayo next year and need to get way more experience this winter. Let me know your plans? When and where to go - ok?

doesn't look like i'll have a hard time finding ppl to climb with.

 

I'm moving to Bellingham in mid October and look forward to getting more experience with ice/mixed... been putting in up to 17hr days enchaining stuff car to car in the Sierra so i'm stoked it seems like there are lots of ppl in the NW w/similar motivation to get after it!

 

If anyone is interested in road tripping this fall, winter, spring to get some ice/mixed/winter mountaineering in, lets talk. Last winter I climbed up to WI4 in Cody... not much mixed or winter mountaineering... lot's of motivation though... that's why i'm moving out here.

 

Cheers
