      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!

[TR] Dracula WI-5 30m and others

Recommended Posts

This past Sunday Matt and I returned to the area above the far end of Snow lake. The couloir that comes down from Chair Peak's north slope to the far end of the lake has numerous ice routes. We approached by skiing up to the base of Chair Peak's NE Buttress and then down Chair's north slope into the couloir. About half way down the couloir, just above the narrow part, is a collection of short (20-30m) routes all in the WI-4/5 range. On our previous visit to this area, back in December, we climbed two of the routes (as reported in This TR ). All the routes are now dramatically fatter then back in December. This time we climbed three more routes that we nick named "Dracula", "Son of Dracula", and "Vertigo". These routes are short but sweet! After finishing the climbing we skied down the lower half of the couloir to Snow Lake and headed out. Great day!
