      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!

Lillooet help.

Recommended Posts

 

I'm looking to take a trip to Lillooet as soon as things get colder (if things get colder). I have never taken a trip to the area in my life, what are some good sources of information? What are the best websites to monitor the weather? Where are some good cheap places to stay? Quickest way to get there? Guide books? recommended climbs? Areas near by? Good place to get a beer? ect.

 

I'm familiar with the West Coast ice website, but that's about all. The only climbs, besides icy BC, That I am even a little familiar with are synchronicity and honeymoon, which I really would like to try and climb this year provided the season doesn't peater out in a haze of heat and rain.

 

Any and all information is a great help. Thanks!

westcoast ice by Don Serl, but you knew that I'm sure.

Breakfast at the Reynolds, there's a guest book and damn fine grub. Should be a beer on tap at the Reynolds bar as well, probably MGD or some such swill ;) I usually stay at the 4 pines, clean and easy. Probably something cheaper around but Im a creature of habit and loathe change. Fingers crossed for weather.

synchro was reported as falling apart on the 4th and honeyman is probably a pile of chunks by now.

 

night n' gale has a long season and is probably still in & worth checking out. take hip waders or garbage bags to get across the river

rambles center and right are bitchin. mile 0 is cheap and fun to stay at and pretty close to bars. ive camped at the parking lot for icy bc as well as the turnout for rambles and thats free. free is good. though i dont know if you're allowed to stay there for free, but ive never been talked to

No trip is complete without going to the Reynold's Bar to play pool.

Cheap hot dinners also.

Thanks for the good info. for those of you familiar with the climate in the area and the normal season, what are your guesses for mid march (magic 8 ball anyone?)? I'm obviously going to be keeping my eye on conditions from now until then, but I'm trying to decide between a place like Cody/Haylite or Lillooet (which is closer = less driving).

La Nina may still deliver the goods to Lillooet but I wouldn't bank on it. I would think mid-March in Lillooet would be the tail end of an exceptional season.
