      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!

new in the area, any ice to climb near Bellingham?

Recommended Posts

eyseonice, people here would love to help you, but this is a case where just looking at the available guidebooks to the Rockies (multiple authors), SW BC (Don Serl) and Washington State (me) for a few min might target your search more.


Closest Rockies ice to Bellingham is probably located in Field, BC, if you are driving the TransCanada, or Bull River ice / Gibraltar Wall near Canal Flats BC, if you are driving I-90.


The guidebooks are all available online on Amazon. Don Serl's is out of print however you can usually borrow a copy from a friend, and there are currently a few used offered on Amazon. "West Coast Ice by Don Serl". Mine here http://www.amazon.com/Washington-Ice-Climbing-Guide-Guides/dp/0898869463/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2

. There are multiple authors and printings for Rockies ice guides (I own 3 different ones) but you can usually get something useful from MEC in Vancouver or Calgary (or online) or a shop like Valhalla Pure in Canmore or Monods in Banff.

Good to know! We are going to head out north for the next week or so and pluck away at ice on our way to Field. Hopefully something develops on Baker by the end of the month for a quick burn. Looks like Canadian climbing shops may have enough beta to get me started.
