      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!

[TR] Alpental Valley, Chair Peak - NE Buttress 12/26/2010

Trip: Alpental Valley, Chair Peak - NE Buttress

 

Date: 12/26/2010

 

Trip Report:

Today I went up and poked around on Chair Peak. The start of the north face route was a little too dry for my liking (not to mention the skis on my pack weren't meshing well with the chimney). So I wallowed over and found some good ice on the northeast buttress (also lots of hollow garbage). The steeper bits at the start and the little step up high were just thick enough to make me happy. Entering the descent gully off the top took some thoughtful moves, as it is pretty rocky and scoured. I downclimbed around the cornice at the usual rap spot and skied down from the base of the chute. I suppose it will all get buried here shortly, but for what it may be worth, there you have it. There's a little more lively TR on my website: http://forestmcbrian.com/

 

Cheers!
