      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!

Trip: Mt. St Helens 5-16-14 - Worming through the flows ( Worm Flow route)

 

Date: 5/16/2014

 

Trip Report:

Hope you all do not mind another St Helens Trip report!

I had no school Friday so I was either going to sleep in till 12 or get 2 hours of sleep and go climbing...you know the answer to that one!

Today was the first day that the permits were limited to 100 people. Warm, windy clear then cloudy. The snow was absolute crap. My buddy had snowshoes and they weren't working. I had crampons and they were useless. We just kept going up from the boot pack that was left over from Mothers Day;D

Left marble mtn sno park at 6:45. Got to the summit around 12:45. Glissaded down and down! So much fun! 2 hours down. Clouds were forming but no rain! I gotta go in the fall then I have all seasons covered!

My 4th summit of St Helens. not the hardest one but probably the 2nd hardest one. Still had a great time!!

Gear Notes:

follow the bootpack...seriously....no boot pack..yucky yucky snow

 

Approach Notes:

Climbers Bivouac is not open yet, no time no it yet. Starting at Marble mtn sno-park does add a couple miles but should not kill ya;)
