      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!

Wow, you're demanding!

I was up around Snoqualmie Peak last wknd. Snow was bombproof, no snowshoes needed up to about 5200ft (as high as we went). The NE slab of the Tooth looked bare (rock), so I assume the N. Face of Chair is similar.

The road leading to Ingalls Peak is closed to vehicles at '29 Pines' (a campground I assume), according to the ranger station (apparently due to logging operations - snowmobiles and foot traffic ok). I don't know where 29 Pines is along the road.

I bet due to lack of snow, that the n slope of Whitehorse is mighty brushy lower down.

I would guess that you could drive to the Big Four Ice Caves trailhead.

don't know about anything else.

Yes, Mike. You'll pay dearly for that one!

And yes, Max, the South Rib of Guye is worth the trip, and you can still hit the Issaquah Brew Pub for lunch as we did.
