      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. Stuart Conditions

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

Just in Leavenworth for the next week and was wondering if anyone knew the conditions for Mt. Stuart. Was hoping to do the Upper North Ridge route. How much harder would the route be if there was still quite a bit of snow up there?

 

If it's not in condition, does anyone have any recommendations for moderate alpine climbs?

You can see Stuart on the drive over if you take I90. I'm sure there's still snow on the upper parts. The melt makes all the upper cruxes wet even the bypass.

 

If it went it would be full value.

Been some fresh snow in them hills this week, but you never know, could be just fine.

from O-zone yesterday, Stuart looked like April -- LOTS of snow. probably entertaining as long as you're prepared for it... for the standard North Ridge route, it shouldn't pose much difficulty except possibly at the gendarme bypass. might be a pitch of spicy mixed there.

Thanks everyone! If we end up getting out there then I'll give an update on the conditions.
