      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!

Snow Creek Wall Wind Event

Recommended Posts

The next time you gun for your chosen classic on Snow Creek Wall, be advised that there is significant and highly impressive windfall at the scw turnoff. You will not recognize it anymore. The creek is still passable as the multitude of older growth that were blown over thankfully fell perpendicular to the creek. With enough traffic, the trail will re-emerge. I'm guessing it was wind that caused this since there is not the usual pile of snow and tell -tale signs of an avy. One of the more impressive blowdowns I've ever seen! It's worth a look see.

FYI: the trail has been re-etched thru the blowdown. Needs some log cutting work but mostly easy to follow. Also bushes have been pruned considerably. Thanks for the hard work L-town crew!!!

Thank you to those that did some pruning. It made the log walking much easier. Impressive amount of linking log ramps together just to get down to the creek.

 

The water in the creek is very high right now so getting across the last 5-10 feet of the creek is a bit interesting; you walk the tree until it is only about 4-6" around and then jump to a broken rotting log that is angled into the creek. Once the water drops a little it won't be as interesting.
