      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!

[TR] Mt St Helens - Worm Flows 6/11/2012

Trip: Mt St Helens - Worm Flows

 

Date: 6/11/2012

 

Trip Report:

Got to marble mt snow park at 645am on June 11 Mon, geared up and left at 700am. It was clear and gorgeous morning. I got hot quickly and only had a polyester long sleeve shirt and pants. Snow was a bit soft but still firm. As I kept climbing, the snow seemed to stay about the same (soft but firm). I only used trail running shoes (with aggressive tread) to about 3/4 up. At that time, feet were wet and getting cold, so I put on my mountaineering boots (no crampons) and continued up. Snow was a softer (a bit slushy) and had to kick in at times to get a good footing. Made it to the top at 1215pm. Gorgeous views! First time up to the top and loved it. Glissaded down as much as possible. Got back to car at 145pm. Overall, great trip, would love to do it in early spring-late winter. Could have gone with T-shirt, shorts, and boots. Here are pics of the trip if needed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cascadefever/
