      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!

Mt. St. Helens conditions

Recommended Posts


I'm curious about the climbing conditions for the new season. Are there any extra precautions to take when hiking MSH in the rain? I'm hoping to score a couple permits from purmit.com so my friend and I can summit soon before the snow falls. Any tips, advice?

This hike would suck if it is pouring down rain. You will be more likely to get cold and wet and possibly get hypothermia if you are not equipped with extra dry clothes and good rain gear. It might be slick too. I would try to wait for a dry day. If you can get some training in snow travel and you can wait until next spring it would probably be even more fun.
