      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!

Rainier this weekend

Recommended Posts

It looks like this weekend will be nice. Anyone interested in doing Gibralter Ledges Saturday and Sunday? My experience includes Adams, Hood, St. Helens in winter, and a winter white out climb to Camp Muir. Looking for someone tag along with on my bithday weekend.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve

I know I'm late here, but weather wasn't great this weekend so I'm hoping maybe you put the climb off or someone else sees this. It looks like better weather tomorrow and Wednesday (April 24-25). If anyone one is interested, get in touch with me, looking to do Gib Ledges.

With the exception of some moderate wind, the weather was great last weekend. I left the parking lot at 8:15 AM on Saturday and turned around at 13,100 (for a variety of little reasons).

 

I went up the Nisqually Icefall and skied down the Ingraham Direct.

 

There is unconsolidated snow on the upper mountain and I didn't see any tracks anywhere above Cathedral Gap.

 

Route finding above the top of Gib Rock is more challenging that usual for this time of year.
