      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!

Kates Needle info?

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have beta re: Kates Needle? (Stikine area) Devils Thumb is the main attraction in that area, but I saw a black&white photo of Kates Needle in CAJ a few years ago and have been curious ever since. Looks like it might fit the criteria of a "2 weeks or less" Alaska Expedition. Beautiful looking peak. I think this was a Beckey first ascent. Landing site same as Devils Thumb? Skis? Nasty cornices? General History?

 

Thanks.

I did a search on GOOGLE and found some nice pixs of Kate's Needle - very nice! Certainly gets the adrenaline flowing. Sorry, I wish I had some specific info regarding the route, but I'm now on the hunt as it looks like a sweet trip - thanks for the tip!
