      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!

Blackburn?

Recommended Posts

I have maps and that book (dont get me started madgo_ron.gif). But I wonder if anyone has been into the Nebesna for the North Ridge of Blackburn.

 

I'm considering this for May.

I believe Paul Clauss flies in to the Nabesna, but no later than mid May. Here is a picture of my son (age 10) and I with Blackburn from the Kennicott side. I scoped out the route from Donohoe Peak. Looks like a burial ground. (Click on the attachment)

Went up there last year specifically for that route 5/28 and couldn't fly in due to the weather. Paul said he wasn't sure if he could land us on the Nabesna at the normal 7500' pt. but said in good weather might be able to land at `9000. We ended up flying over to Bona cause we didn't want to wait. (Sat in Chitina for a few days, yuck!!) Check with Paul for alternative landing sites. The route is normally brutally windy.
