      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] Cascade Pass - Johannesberg Mountain, Northeast Buttress 7/15/2012

Trip: Cascade Pass - Johannesberg Mountain, Northeast Buttress


Date: 7/15/2012


Trip Report:

This was my first trip into the alpine outside of the Stuart Range, so as Jens and I sped along the dark road to Cascade Pass I drempt of a super long route on solid white granite...

This was not quite what i encountered.


I have been wanting to see what i could fit into a solid day in the alpine. When Jens contacted me about doing the Torment-Forbidden traverse or J-berg in a day, i was thrilled for the challenge.

Snow conditions helped us decide to take the long decent back around Mixup Peak. I considered this a beautiful tour of the North Cascades. We started around 6am and got back to the car right before midnight.

I had never felt so mentally taxed from anything elese as i did the next morning. Spending so much time in the "no fall zone" was an intresting experience, but all experiences on the mountains offer a great deal of learning.



We started to the right of the waterfalls.

Approach Notes:

Avoid large falling ice from the JC glacier.

Mitocondria, Brad, and I did the CJ couloir yesterday. The snow was perfect. A lot more firm than what it looks like in your pics, no postholing.
