      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!

Darrington Conditions Update

Recommended Posts

For you super-nerds who calculate your approach times down to the minute and so on, Bill's bike computer puts the distance from the closure to the trailhead on Clear Creek Road at just under 4 miles.

 

The road makes for an easy, enjoyable ride, especially downbound.

 

The crux:

3 o'clock rock is largely dry,

And some snow still guards the top of the Granite Sidewalk:

Go get it!

Yup it was actually sort of hopping up there this weekend. Sat saw three (!!) parties on Exfo, doing three different routes, all nearly bone dry.

 

Sunday, there were five cars at the parking spot. That would be a reasonable total when the road was driveable.

 

It looked like somebody even hoofed it into the Green Giant - now that's some serious road hiking!

looks like the first (and maybe parts of second) pitch of total soul is under snow. Kicking steps up a 5.6 pitch is fun.

Thanks for taking all the shots, Raoul!

 

My bike is making some new noises now. And the slow leak in front; it's time for some bike attention for both of us!
