      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!

Don't abuse the ice until it's formed

Recommended Posts

From BC Ice Conditions Page:

"Early season climbing in Marble Canyon - The reports below indicate lots of icicles, which lay down the foundation for the rest of the year,. If these get bashed off, then the ice will never get a chance to form. The ice is still not forming well and could use a few weeks to thicken and freeze before being bashed to pieces. Something to keep in mind..."

Probably worth thinking about before we all dash out and spend the morning TRing the bottom of some classic to death in the pouring rain when it's not even "in" anyway.

TR if you must but remember... it trashes the ice and rots the soul. Far better to go lead something easier instead.
