      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!

Mt. Washington Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Anybody been up or gotten a good look at the N ridge on Mt. Washington (OR)? Looking to get up there but would like to know what to expect. Thanks!

Kirk - So have you gotten a look at it recently? I have also seen the avy report so that's not very helpful. Just trying to decide how much snow will be on the summit prow and last few hundred feet to the top.

i drive over the pass quite often. it got a frosting up there last week but i expect it to be melted out by now. it was clear of rime before that from what i could see from the highway. the ridge is in pretty nice shape but will be exposed from snow soon if it isn't already.

Thanks folks. I got an up close look the day before yesterday but no summit. All slide activity seemed to be on the slopes below the ridge and navigation was not a problem. The upper route has snow cover and is not frozen or consolidated. I didn't set foot on the summit horn because of the snow cover. I'm hoping in a few weeks that'll change but that is what I experienced as of Monday. (sorry, no photos) From the HWY, 3FJ looks like the upper route is more dry than Washington but still snow. I would expect similar conditions.

Kirk - That's ok. Thanks for posting the link. I definitely would have wanted to see that if I hadn't already.
