      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!

Anyone been up the new Winthrop direct route

Recommended Posts

I'm also going up, but not until Saturday. Any beta on the new route would be appreciated.

Sat is summit day, Dog willing, but we'll be staying that night at Schurman. You'll see us...we'll be the party with the 11 year old. Come on over and say hi.

I'll be grabbing new pix from my friend Peter... but until then, here's a trip report from someone hiking the Burroughs and you can see the middle to upper part of the route in picture 39. Looks like after you traverse over to the Winthrop there's a little jog through some breakup and then a direct line up the glacier before switchbacking some snow bridges towards the shrund. Does look like the shrund has a hefty bridge over it currently - so probably no traverse over to the crater rim, just direct and then over. I'll find out from my friend Peter if he has anymore.
