      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!

Nice! What John isn't mentioning is that temps in town have hovered around 0 for about a week! Brrr!

 

Where is this in reference to Malignant Gully?

It's to the right. The top is visible on the far right hand side of your photo. What looks like the bottom right hand side of Beneign Peak in your pic is the other side of Rumble. The line in the other thread is clearly visible to the left of Malignant. Alot more snow in your photo.

Yeah - photo was taken last April; there was a lot of snow in that valley last spring. The above was taken from somewhere on Raina --- here's a better one taken from somewhere on Peeking.

Finley, you should go get the 2nd ascent. It's good right now. The crux is the second pitch. Ben's right in the middle of it in the last photo. After that it's a 3,000ft grade 3 cruise to the top.

Has that prominent ramp/gully been skied? Is this the Malignant gully you are referring to?

Yes - the obvious ramp is Malignant Gully. It's probably been skied. Lots of big descents back there if you take the time to get to them.
