      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!

Trip: Ingalls, North Peak - East Ridge

 

Date: 6/5/2013

 

Trip Report:

 

We climbed the East Ridge of Ingalls yesterday... and descended today. We had a late start, hot temps low, cold wind above, managed a summit bivy, and earned few style points. The Some pics below should suffice for beta on the current snow pack. Enjoy:

A planned bivy? Sounds like a nice place to slumber as long as the wind is not too bad.

 

WE trudged up in the shitty soft snow to a minor peak between Ingalls and Longs Pass the previous weekend. The side hilling was horrendous and the wind and snow was strong on the ridge! I was surprised at how low the snow line was too. About 4500 feet I think?

 

 

 

Good on ya's
