      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!

10/28/2010 muir snow conditions

Recommended Posts

just a little conditions note...

 

freezing level was around 6500, very overcast. intermittent precip 10:00 - 13:00, some wind. the road up is great, yet there's enough snow to be able to start skiing from the parking lot.

 

the snow was great! well bonded, though it did get quite velco-y by the end of the day. we didn't dig any pits, but there was no sloughing, and higher up (around 8k) we had some pretty loose powder.

 

a few pics:

Did you make it to muir?

to the edge of it. we couldn't see anything, so figured that it would be no fun to try route finding down the field. i'm guessing the field itself would have had pretty stellar snow.
