      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!

[TR] The Tooth; Snoqualmie Pass - South Face 10/12/2013

Recommended Posts

Trip: The Tooth - South Face

 

Date: 10/12/2013

 

Trip Report:

Nash and I wanted to get out, even with the marginal forecast, so we decided on a technical hike. Neither of us had climbed the Tooth at Snoqualmie pass, but it's not a bad way to spend a day. One simul-climb pitch had us on the summit in much less time than it took us to pick our way through the deceivingly thin cover of snow on the boulder field approach. Had the route to ourselves, but don't think I'd do it again unless it included skinning to and skiing from the base.

Get down here, snowflakes! It's time to ski...

 

All in all, couldn't ask for more being only an hour from town. Pretty nice when you can sleep in, get to the Alpine and still go to a party all in the course of a day.

 

 

Gear Notes:

A nut and a few cams. Could probably just bring double length draws and clip the rap stations (if not crowded).

 

Approach Notes:

Wait for more snow...
