      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!

Mt. Rainier via Gib Ledges in May.

Recommended Posts

Hi budies,

 

I am trying to climb Rainier via Gib Ledges. I tried on 3/18/2011 but failed due to bad weather. I climbed Rainier last year via DC and is going to clim Denali this June. So this would be my final training for Denali.

 

I am thinking about 5/13 - 14 or 5/20-21 depending on weather and partners.

 

Ping me if you are interested in.

 

thanks,

I could do May 6-7 or 6-8. I led a group up Kautz a year and a half ago and would love to return to the mountain. Would that weekend work for you?

Anyone wants to go this Friday and Saturday. May 6 and 7 attempt had cancelled due to bad weather. I am trying this week again. The weather seems favorable this time.
