      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!

Beginner Alpine Climbs

Recommended Posts

I'm very new to alpine climbing and am looking for some good beginner routes in the Cascades. I haven't taken any alpine courses but work on a high ropes course. I summitted Mt. Rainier via the Disappointment Cleaver Route with RMI last year and summitted the South Spur of Mt. Adams this past fall.

I've been thinking about:

--Hogsback on Mt. Hood

--Mt. Baker's Easton Glacier

--Mt. Angeles (Olympics) in the winter

 

Any input or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

throw in a healthy dose of cragging rock climbing and some ice climbing to wi-3. A solid technical base makes everything in the alpine a little bit easier.

(I kind of don't like recommending Cooper Spur because, while it is scenic, using it as a decent route is notorious for its run-out and history of accidents.)
