      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!

We went up Monday. Lots of fresh snow at higher elevations.

Got to the base of the climb and didn't see much ice. Lots of lose snow though.

well that doesn't sound like fun... perhaps I should sleep in and try and climb something on the kiddie cliff instead... I know that was sort of in when I climbed there last saturday.

 

Thank you

Here she is on Monday, pretty darn snowy. Bergschrund was totally filled in. I'm sure you could get up it, but take some good flotation.

 

It didn't seem to have gotten as warm up there as I would have expected given the weather. That may have changed some this week but I doubt it.

climbed the buttress a week ago. First pitch was in but the fixed anchor was burried. Make sure to bring a picket or 2, and a few pitons. Otherwise the first pitch is fairly unprotectable.

Second pitch up to the waterfall was eazy and consolidated. Third pitch/ waterfall took 16cm screws. easy to the top from there.

 

GOOD LUCK
