      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!

Heading up there this weekend for my birthday and bringing some rather inexperienced friends with me.....hey....it's my birthday, and I wanted to spend it climbing....I figured this is as close to getting them on a real mountain as I would get!

 

Anyways, crampons? Ice axe? Snow shoes? Skis? Hiking boots? Glacier boots? What's it like up there this time of year? How much crap am I gonna need to let them borrow & rent from REI??

 

Anyone been up there recently??

Hey I haven't been up there for a month but expect snow. I don't think you would need mtn boots for this climb. Snowshoes will likely not be needed. Bring crampons and ice axe just in case it gets icy up on top. Climbers bivouac has not been opened yet so you will be starting at marble mtn snow park. No snow there so don't bring skis
