      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!

Mixed at Mt. Baker?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone has any info on some mixed lines that are supposed to be on Baker near Pan Dome. I could swear I've seen them in the Washington Ice book, but that was just online through google books.

 

If I remember correctly, they should be just right of Pan Dome? Any info is greatly appreciated!

Send a pm to jason martin on this site. He may be able to help out and give you some beta for a lower elevation option.

The lower elevation option is a scratchy area that is known as the Shuksan Crag. Park at the small pullout on the left at the Hannegan Road turn off before Hwy 542 climbs to the ski area. Walk down the road and it's on the left.

 

It was originally a rock crag but never caught on since it's so mossy.

Cool. I wasn't sure about letting that cat out of the bag.

 

Seems like the best use of dry tool crags around here is to get some fitness for regular ice climbing on our once a year banff trips. Actual ice is not needed on the mixed lines but rather a shorter drive and approach.

 

 

I would think that with this in mind, a good mixed climbing area would be on some scruffy road cut or quarry somewhat close to home. It is surprisingly hard to find such thing that is 30ft or so high without a huge amount of traffic underneath.

I have one in mind Gene. I just need an empty week or so to make it happen. Overhanging, 20 minute approach, and close to Seattle.
