      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 climb Ranier?

This is what happens when the moderators discourage the spray forum, it just ends up everywhere else.

I have 5 days off and I need to get some time in the mountains and Ranier would be some prefect training, just curious how much the snow is consolidated, it has been nice the past 5 days with warm temps. Doesn't seem like to many people have been up their recently.

If you're looking for challenging training then taking laps on the Muir Snowfield at this time of year will be superb exercise.

 

If you want to find out about conditions you might give Alpine Ascents a call, they should have a 7-day Denali prep course coming off Rainier right about now.

Went up to Muir on Monday- No flotation required, on the way down it so windblown and icy that I put my crampons for most of the way down the snowfield

It's so awesome in the winter. I've only been on the muir snowfield, but the views are incredible. With all the snow it is easier than being on the asphalt in the summer. It will be windy up there I guarantee that!
