      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!

Washington/Ellinor Road Conditions??

Recommended Posts

There was a BOEALPS team out that way last weekend and they said they startd about a half hour below where NF-2419 and NF-2464 merge on Google maps, about 2000 ft. They didn't have flotation and it was pretty slow going up the road. They were able to call the ranger station and get a road conditions update before they went. Just a heads up, there will be another team up there doing snow camping for the Basic Climbing Class.

I was at Ellinor yesterday and the road to the lower trailhead is completely clear (although full of potholes). You cannot drive to the upper trailhead yet.

The road is clear 0.2mi beyond the lower TH, just short of hogback trail to the upper parking area. Snow on the trail begins near the large rock above the junction with lower trail.

The road is now clear to Washington. Snow blocks the upper Ellinor road above a small slide for 150'. It's clear until the turn at Branch Creek below the parking area.
