      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!

Rainier DC this weekend

Recommended Posts

Good morning - I'll be skinning up to Muir Thursday morning and looking to meet up with a singlet or a group for a trip up the DC this weekend. I will have a rope with me as well as few pickets and screws if you are coming up solo. Planning on skiing from the summit.

 

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you want to nail something down or maybe I'll see you up there.

Yeah. I should have picked a better weekend when I booked flights months ago.

 

Weather permitting of course.

Rock climbing's an option. Leavenworth, Vantage, the Tieton River, and Smith Rock all provide better weather alternatives to riding the West Side Poo Train. Picking up partners for any of those places shouldn't be too hard.

 

There's a big, cold storm happening on Rainier now and through the weekend.

Thanks Tvashtarkatena - I may need to add rock to my repertoire As far as Rainier, I've been following the weather for a week or so. I'm hoping as the low weakens this weekend I might be able to get an opportunity to scoot for the summit.

Well, play it conservatively. I'm no expert but high on Rainier is not a fun place to be in whiteout conditions.

Especially with a high of 20 F at Camp Muir. Looks like its not even going to break freezing up there this weekend.
