      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!

Anyone have a month to spare this summer?

Recommended Posts

I'm considering climbing every major volcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc in a single push North. Maybe do it to raise some money for California State Parks, maybe just do it for the hell of it. I need a partner who is down to just bum it for the length of the "expedition".

 

Cmon! Who wants to climb their nuts off this summer?

I graduate from UC Santa Cruz in mid June. I'm hoping to be climbing by the end of June/beginning of July. I don't think it would be too difficult to plan nor would it be that expensive. Drive a few hours, climb for a few days, drive a few hours, climb, etc. I'm not looking to do a speed record or anything. I think it would be a lot of fun!

Wish I could swing something like that. Just out of curiosity, what is on your list of "major volcanoes"? I think it goes without saying that Rainer and Shasta should be on the list. I somehow doubt Mt. Tabor will meet your criteria. Where are you drawing the line? Is it a height thing? Does difficulty play into it? I look forward to seeing a TR when all is said and done.

Does experience matter? I have very little experience because I live in St. Louis but am moving to the Seattle area no later than the first week of June. I have a car and am in excellent shape so I would haul any gear around for us...I'm a quick learner and easy going. I just want to get into climbing seriously and this sounds like a great way to do it. If you already have a partner for this endeavor I would still love to tag along if possible. I would need to learn a lot but I would pull my own weight. Message me if your willing to take a newbie on.

I was originally thinking anything over 10k.... I don't really have much of a desire to hike to the top of a small scree pile because it is technically a cascade volcano.. I'll update when the list is more solidified.
