      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!

Bushwhacker Climbing Club Glacier Course

Recommended Posts



The Bushwhacker Climbing Club is opening up registration for the Basic Glacier Climbing Course which we put on every year. We're really starting to get some momentum in the club and would like to have you join us to get some basic glacier travel skills.


The course includes group dynamics, gear selection, self-arrest and self-belay, running belay training, backcountry navigation (heavy emphasis on route finding), trip planning, snow camping skills, team arrest training and practice, crevasse rescue practice and a 4-day climb of Mt. Baker (the Squak Glacier route).


The makeup of the course is Lectures on Tuesday nights in May - June, a day outing for group skills, a day outing of self-arrest and navigation, an overnight snow camping and team-arrest outing (with anchors clinic and crevasse rescue introduction), and a 4-day crevasse rescue/summit climb of Mt. Baker.


Lectures will be held at BELLEVUE COLLEGE on Tuesday Nights in May and June.


The course is a fantastic and inexpensive way to get some great outdoor travel skills and feel comfortable on glaciers.


The club offers other endeavors for after graduation: Leadership, Advanced Crevasse Rescue, Snow Shelter, Scrambling, Outings all over the cascades and monthly social gatherings.


Come join us! The registration process is by application and all applications will be reviewed through now and the end of the month with an awarding of a spot sometime in mid March.


More details and the application can be found here:

Also, if you want direct details or have questions, you can email me at caledh@gmail.com. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about the Bushwhacker's or the course.


APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MARCH 1st to bwcc_information@bushwhackerclimbingclub.org.
