      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!

N. Face Buckner Conditions?

Recommended Posts

from a friend:


I was up there yesterday and climbed Forbidden w. ridge. Its in great shape. We climbed to the ridge with little to no difficulties. Once at the ridge we climbed for another 200ft with crampons and then the rest of the ridge was bare and dry.


The snow was in great shape for travel 'til mid day. It began after the third creek crossing. Even in the hottest part of the day the snow was still reasonable for walking, except in old avi debris.


The North ridge still has a lot of snow on it and looks like it needs a couple of more weeks for some stuff to fall off of it.

The NE face still looks like a winter climb.

Sahale appears to have snow all the way to the summit with no exposed rock.


Sharkfin tower looks great. Good snow coverage to base and then bare rock.


Torment still has last years snow coming down the route, so torment forbidden needs some time.


N face buckner looks completely free from any difficulties.


Mixup needs some time.
