      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!

Argonaut Peak: FWA of the Northwest Buttress/Arete

Recommended Posts

I got into the Stuart Range this past weekend. Conditions were trying on the approach with nearly every slippery step on glass like ice...Once I got above 6,000 feet I found variable snow, from squeaky neve to shin deep wind packed pow.

 

The Northwest Buttress isn't the hardest route around but it's varied and beautiful, making for a good winter climb.

I think there is more ice on the trails than on the mountains. Nice job on the climb. After trying to ski up there on the 26th, I saw how perfect these conditions would be for winter rock ascents. Who is going to repeat the CNR on Stuart?
