      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!

speaking of the quality to the road and the big walls back there.

did not actually see squire creek wall. but the lingering snow seen on exfol dome suggests that the same would exist on squire. maybe lines protected from melting snow patches and/or seeps? Illusion seems like a good fit for these 2 conditions needed.

My first time up to the illusion wall with the late and great rainman it was June (I think) and we brought ice axes for the slab approach. Here's to hoping it has been a light snow year for squire creek.

makes sense. while the face would be free of snow, being east facing means lots of leeward side snow accumulation. The avalanches would build up the snow pack on the base of the face and ledges till june. heck, the first pitch of total soul and silent running is still under snow and that has a somewhat southerly aspect.

I thought you were asking about the dryness of the face itself.

First wash was a little rough for the Corolla, so walked the extra 10 minutes. Might have given it another try if there wasn't the rusty muffler along the side of the road.

 

Truck or AWD would probably make it all the way.

If you plan to climb to the top of the Dome from Blueberry Terrace, be sure to start climbing 50 yards north of where the Smoot book indicates!

Hello fellow CC'ers

 

Just a heads up:

 

This weekend, a group of dedicated volunteers will be working on the Asbestos Creek ford a couple miles in. We will be installing the 2nd half of the surface repair. The funding was entirely donated by climbers and hikers last winter. A hefty thanks to everyone who made this happen!!!!

 

Truck is loaded, and we could always use a few more hands. Feel free to stop by to say hi and meet the intrepid and passionate force that helps maintain access to this great area. Looks warm, we'll be mighty thirsty

 

Give a call if interested in participating. 425-263-1220
