      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!

Melwaka beta?

Recommended Posts

A friend and I are thinking of touring around Chair Peak this weekend and I'm looking for a little advice.

 

I've seen a few reports that go from Melwaka to the Hemlock-Chair col and then down the Great Couloir or other.

 

Is there an reason you can't do a climbing traverse from Melwaka to Pineapple Pass to ski Great Scott? Is this normally done?

 

Also "watch out for so-and-so tricksy cliffband" or current conditions info much appreciated.

It's pretty straightforward going from Melakwa pass to the lake then up to either Bryant col or Pineapple pass.

Cool, thanks Feck. I ran into the monster avi field while doing Alpy slackcountry out to No Fog, that you described in a recent TR. My idea was that that junk extended up the couloir to the col, and I didn't want to ski that, thus the extension to Pineapple.

 

I just realized my post count and join date don't exactly jive! Wonder how that happened.
