      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!

Prime snow conditions

Recommended Posts

Lane peak and Pinnacle peak, perfect neve on the route

 

get yea up there and tag something while we still have this nice weather

 

we got on Pinnacle peak but the route was longer than we anticipated so we had to turn around, still got locked in at the gate and had to get the ranger to open

 

Rec car camp at Narada if you can get off early the day before and get up there before the gate closes at 6pm,

 

otherwise the gate doesn't open until 8 or 9 am

 

the snow's a little soft in areas in the forest (snowshoes)but up on the route it's stellar.

 

look at the topo for the approach, we were in too much of a hurry and left the road too soon, lost more elevation than we should have

 

The N ridge of Pinnacle has a lot of bare rock up high, not much gear but okay belays

 

Lane peak, the Zipper and Lovers Lane have got to be in good condition because the snow on Pinnacle was really good.
