      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!

Baker Ice

Recommended Posts

Ice seemed well formed, looks like it's been pretty cold up there (the snow was excellent). I am not sure if it was Pan Dome falls, but when heading up C-2 there is a small section of ice of to left before C-1, it would be worth climbing maybe if you were already there to ski or board, but IMO not worth a 2.5+ hour drive. If this is not Pan Dome falls please correct me.

that's the right area. the lower falls is lower angle and can hold alot of snow. when the route is bare top to bottom it is 50+ meters. 2.5 hr drive for a snow plastered route... [hell no]

but when you're in the 'ham visiting the in laws for christmas like i will be... [chubit]

happy holidays!

Drove 2 hours(ballard) climbed pam dome, tabasco kidd and played around on other stuff. totally worth it! 61 pitches of ice this season and counting.

If you look at Pan Dome and say its not worth it, either open up the eyes, look left and right or stay on the ski slopes.

HMMM, I think I saw some ice on Pan Dome recently, too. It didn't look like much, but looks can be deceiving! In fact, I too have climbed Pan Dome, and I remember thinking that it was much more fun than hanging out in the city or spending another monotonous evening climbing at the gym.

Pandome was in last weekend but I didn't think much of the conditions, the line I took had pretty cruddy ice that didn't take screws that well. The whole route was pretty much uncovered so you get your full pitch of climbing.

There's a bunch of other drips to the left and right too, they're much shorter but maybe you link some of the together. Dale?

pandome might have been in earlier, but there's nothing left now. there are a cpl very short, steep pillar off to the right, but the main flow has not survived the warm weather of the recent week. snow's nice up there, tho...

cheers, don
