      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!

[TR] Sherman - Squak Glacier 6/6/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: Sherman - Squak Glacier


Date: 6/6/2013


Trip Report:

Pretty much had the mountain to myself yesterday - one snowmobiler passed by, and I spied a snowboarder and a telemarker coming descending from about a mile away while on the summit. An Alpine Ascents class was parked in the far distance above the Railroad Grade, visible only as a dotted collection of tents.


No crevasses to speak of. Skiing to and off the summit is straightforward. Snow below about 8000' is still mushy, grabby and easily sloughs on steeper, east facing slopes, of which there are few and not necessarily part of the route. I cut them on the way down to check it out.


FS 13 is clear of snow except for the last several hundred yards.


Zero traffic on the I5 Skagit bypass in Mt. Vernon on the way up - about a 15 minute delay on the way back at around 4:30 pm. Not too bad.


Overall, a mellow trip.
