      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!

Trip: Unalaska Island, Alaska - Makushin Volcano

 

Date: 7/18/2011

 

Trip Report:

Here is something a little different...and far and away. I have been meaning to post this for a while. Here is some photos from a solo foray I took up Masushin Volcano in the Aleutians last summer. If you would like some more info, please click on the link for a report from the climb that was in the local paper.

Nice Work! I didn't know it was in the paper, although you said that it hadn't been done very many times. Stay safe this summer, and keep us posted if you skip a couple trips on the boat and head into the hills up there!

I read the article in the Dutch Harbor Fisherman. I'm interested in your ascent of Roundtop Mountain on Unimak Island with Jeff Hancock. Can you tell us more?

Scott: I did not know that you were a local celebrity! Think about a climbing trip in December; I should have some time to kill!

WCC, here is a few photos from the trip to Unimak Island that Jeff and I did. We flew into False Pass and proceeded to the Roundtop/Isanotski area. It was a long cold slog in early May, but good conditions for hauling sleds. Mostly we had tent bound storm days, with just enough time to pull of Rountop. Thanks for the interest!00190005.JPG00190042.JPG00200022.JPG

What year was the Roundtop ascent?

 

And when are you headed to the Shaler Mountains? I'd love to read your report when you return.

Rountop was way back in 1999. Planning on going into the Shalers sometime after the 16th of July. Hope we have good weather. I will let you know how it turns out.

Wow, nice work! I was up there in 2002 fishing for pollock as well. I stared at that mountain quite a lot, dreaming of just walking out of work at the dock and hiking to the top of it. That view is amazing.

 

Something freaks me out about that island. Perhaps it's the fact that there isn't a single tree on it. Hey, no slide alder. score!
