      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!

[TR] Mount Saint Helens - Worm Flows 11/8/2014

Trip: Mount Saint Helens - Worm Flows

 

Date: 11/8/2014

 

Trip Report:

I went up Saint Helens a week back and knew there wouldn't be much in the way of any snow, but it was as my climbing partner requested. Alas! The split board remains in my closet. It was a beautiful climb up and nearly to ourselves. Marble Mountain's parking lot was empty at 3am and we didn't see or hear anyone until 7:00am on the summit. The climb down worm flows was brutal on my knees and I think that'll be it for me until the snows increase. Pray for more snow people!

I don't know who these climbers were, but they had de-poned to glissade down and were having a rightfully difficult time getting to a good path. I was glad to see they had a decent descent. If you guys are on here PM me and I'll send you a few more shots.

 

Gear Notes:

Pons and axe pre sunrise, otherwise unnecessary.

 

Approach Notes:

Marble Mountain / Worm Flows
