      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!

Lane Peak - Zipper or Fly?

Recommended Posts

It is definitely possible to climb Lane peak right now. The question is how?


You may still be able to climb up the Zipper or the Fly, I have seen reports of these being skied into July.


If you aren't sure those are in, an approach from the south is a safe bet.


Summitpost.org has more details.

Climbed it on Friday, July 13th - whichever is the right side couloir. Was a bit of a schwack getting to it, because of the snow melt (we parked at Reflection Lake (I think that's what it's called?). The left side couloir was discontinous at several points at the bottom, while the right side was in good shape. Had to do some interesting rock scrambling around the backside of the peak, but in the end bailed on the last 300 feet of scrambling to the summit, in favor of making the all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet at Paradise Lodge. :-)
