      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!

Washington (or OR- Jefferson) alpine or cragging?

Recommended Posts



I'm jonesin' to get out of Dodge, or as the case may be, the Bay Area. Want to head north, will most likely do so sometime between tomorrow & Monday, at the latest.


2 conditions-dependent routes I've wanted to do for awhile now, but haven't gotten to- Jefferson Glacier on Jefferson, & Adams Glacier on Adams. Both involve steep snow; also, easy rock (easy 5th) on choss on Jefferson; or moderate ice climbing (WI3ish?) on Adams.


I've also wanted to try Inspiration Peak in the Pickets for some time, too- it has an, um, involved approach (bushwhacking, glacier travel, all that good stuff). Once you get there, it looks like a sweet exposed 5.9 ridgeline w/ a spectacular top-out.


I'd also be totally down to do some cragging. Weather permitting, Inded would be cool, Washington Pass, Leavenworth...


Conservatively, I'll just say that I'd be cool leading 5.9 trad right now (haven't climbed outside for a month or so). After getting a couple days in, maybe harder. I've got rope, rack, ride. Would be leaving from Seattle.


Hit me up! Phone best. 510.393.2651
