      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] - Death Picnic 12/22/2011

Recommended Posts

Trip: - Death Picnic


Date: 12/22/2011


Trip Report:



Always on the lookout for steep ice, I found 3 friends ( Tom S., Daniel J, and Powderhound) who were looking for their first outing. After much taunting on this site, and oogleing over Jeff Streets photos from last year, we headed out for it. It proved to be an exhilarating climb, well worth the drive and 1 hr approach. Bring on the season! More on my site




Gear Notes:

Screws, some shorter ones too


Approach Notes:

Upper right Baker ski area parking lot. Up valley to the west to Herman /Table saddle. Go across super steep slope around Table and go farther that the first ice you see.

Looking good guys. Here's a pic of Pan Dome I took today as we were heading back. Don't know who this was but he cruised it. We climbed some of the short pitches to the right.
