      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!

Winthrop (not Emmons) route

Recommended Posts

The route, as posted on the blog, goes right from Schurman and ascends the Winthrop entirely. The section from about 9700 (it descends some from Schurman) to 11,000 has some challenging crevasse crossings, exposed traverses, exposed blue ice, and is changing rapidly. Yesterday's (Aug 17) post on the blog about the crevasse 'plug' being passable is inaccurate. A walkable reroute is in place as of late yesterday morning.

 

In short, this route is more serious than usual, at least though that section. Expect to do some routefinding and more exposure than when it goes up the Corridor.
