      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!

Info request - Mt. Adams, White Salmon Glacier

Recommended Posts

Simple but obscure question here - much rockfall hazard from The Pinnacle and other cliffs above the WSG? OK, maybe not simple; the place can produce some the region's largest rockfalls. But on a more typical day. An early-season day. On the spectrum of "a few pebbles rolled past" to "It was raining whizzing chunks o death so we ran away."

 

 

Thanks.

Skied the white salmon/avalanche glacier route yesterday with a party of 3, around 3:30 PM from the summit, small amounts of rock fall (a few small pebbles here and there), nothing came close to us as we descended.

 

There is a large bergschrund guarding the top of the white salmon glacier, it is easily passable on the skiers right side. There was one other small crack that we crossed after the schrund, and then it was cruiser after that. Good luck!

Working on it for next week. Actually considering WSG as the ascent route. Looks aesthetic - like the rock gate at the top - and less crowded.
