      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. Maude - Entiat Icefall 7/23/2012

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt. Maude - Entiat Icefall


Date: 7/23/2012


Trip Report:

A few weeks ago Vern, Jens and I climbed the Entiat Icefall on Mt. Maude. The glacier has receded significantly since the days when, as described in the Beckey book, there were 9 pitches of ice climbing on the route. We approched mid-afternoon on Saturday via the Phelps and Leroy Creek Basin and reached a very nice bivy above Icy Lake. The next morning we dropped onto the Entiat Glacier. There was only one section of ice climbing that was moderate and didn't require the rope. We climbed snow to a notch and then ascended an easy 4th/low 5th ridge to the summit. Its great to get out to new areas in the Cascades, this was my first time to the Entiat range and it was a good one!










Gear Notes:

A few screws (didnt use) and a light alpine rack.

Nice photos. I climbed that route many years ago and really enjoyed it. Fact is there are not a whole lot of routes that combine steep (well relatively steep) glacial ice and exposed rock. It's one of the few.
