      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!

Black Peak, Washington Pass, Conditions

Recommended Posts

I am planning on attempting the Northeast Ridge of Black Peak near Washington Pass in mid-September with a partner. We will be traveling from out of state and would appreciate any information about the conditions from anyone who has been up there recently. In particular, how much snow is left on the approach to the ridge? How icy is it? Are crampons and/or an axe recommended on the snowfield? We are trying to decide between taking an axe and crampons, just crampons, just microspikes, or just boots. Also, would you recommend a 50 meter or 60 meter rope? We plan on simulclimbing most of the ridge but potentially pitching out the 5th class sections. Any advice on conditions would be appreciated. Thanks!
