      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!

Little Tahoma (Fryingpan Glacier) Conditions?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for some beta from anyone that has been up to Summerland/Meany Crest/Fryingpan/Little T. I'm hoping to get out this coming weekend (pending weather), but I haven't seen any reports on Little T this season.

 

Thanks!

I haven't been up there since 2010, so current conditions are out. I've got beta though. Pics are on Facebook if you wanna check em out I'll give you that info. Definitely plan to bivy as high as possible. There's good spots below the Fryingpan, and even better there's room for two in a cozy little nook on the ridge above it. That upper glacier is steep, and was torn up when we were there. I'd plan as much time as possible for that leg. Meany ridge was easy if you just follow the more "solid" looking bits. Any specific beta just ask.

Thanks for the response. I've climbed it twice before (almost three, turned back last year because of crappy weather), so I am familiar with the route. I don't foresee there being any problems with the route, but just thought I would check to see if anyone has been up there recently.

 

In the past we've done it in a day (a long, 15hr day), but this time we are going to take it easy and get up to camp on Friday after work. Still keeping an eye on the weather, though...it is no fun when you can't see the views from up there!

Given the crappy weather, I assume you didn't go. But just in case anyone knows recent conditions, I'd appreciate. I'm specifically interested in knowing if it's skiable between Summerland and Meany Crest. I also know the route well enough. Thanks.
