      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!

[TR] Mt Harvey - North Ramp 12/4/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Harvey - North Ramp


Date: 12/4/2011


Trip Report:

After a failed attempt the weekend before my girlfriend and I finally found the north ramp in climbable condition.


Nov. 27th attempt. No WI, just WW




The route is definitely "in" now, but has very thin ice/mixed bulges on the lower half, with more snow and fat ice up top. Used the pickets lots, every ice screw, and 1 med nut, one #4 metolius.












Descending the SW Ridge



Our Route




Sustained 45 degree snow with short WI2 cruxes for added interest.

Great day, close to home, first climb of the season.


Get after it.







Gear Notes:

2 pickets

6 screws

super light rock rack


rock gear at the bottom of the route, pickets and screws at the top of the ramp


Approach Notes:

Standard approach up the lions trail until fork to Mt Harvey North Face Trail

Descending the north ridge? Curious, why not go down the SW ridge - did you have snowshoes left at the base or something?

They were. I really butchered the TR, its the first one i've put up on here, and had limited time to do it. I've done my best to fix it up now.
