      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!

WA Pass conditions

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been to the WA Pass area recently, Liberty Bell or SEWS/NEWS? What's it like these days? Snow/ice on the ground, snow/ice on the routes?


Thank you!

Routes are clear. Firm snow in the Liberty Bell - Concord gulley in the morning, then nice plunge steps in the evening. I was glad to have an ice axe. Crampons stayed in the pack, but I almost needed them. Plenty of snow at the turn off from the official trail to the climbers trail. Don't despair though, there is still plenty of loose choss to scramble over up higher.
