      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] Rainier - Winthrop (Emmons) 8/18/2012

Recommended Posts

Trip: Rainier - Winthrop (Emmons)


Date: 8/18/2012


Trip Report:

Short version:

Red Bull. Up, up, up. Red Bull. WTF? Up, up, up. Yahoo! Down, down, down. Tracks! Down, coffee, down, glissade, down. Beer.


Long version:






Gear Notes:

The route is spicy. Take more gear than you typically would for the Emmons.


Approach Notes:

Inter is still in good shape. Glissaded the whole thing in two shots.

Nice write up CascadeClimber, and an impressive ascent!


You picked the right day, Saturday night it blew hard and rained at Schurman, and no one had much fun.


FYI, the "AJ" you mention on your blog was actually "JR." A hazard of two-letter names, I guess.

Hey Clive- thanks for the correction- I've fixed the TR. Amazing that he remembered me from that climb in 2006.


Nice to see you both up there. Sorry the weather went south.

Hey thanks for the TR, especially the beta about the crack at 11,000 ft! Did a one-day climb yesterday on the Emmons-Winthrop and that saved us plenty of time.
