      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!

Seattle and beyond...Visiting 3/29-4/10

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

I am flying into Seattle and hoping to make some fun plans for early spring stay...I am not familiar with the area and was hoping for some local beta. It seems the weather (or at least precip) has been different this year and I wanted to know what ice might still be in? if it is worth it to bring skis, even if to head upto BC, what other adventures/summits might be worth a run; and lastly, but certainly not least what will be the best options for sport/trad/TR and who wants to partner up??? I am willing to travel and will probably be car camping it most of the time, but any beds or cheap accommodation recommendations would also be greatly appreciated...

 

Feel free to respond here or email me tripleaderdave@gmail.com

A mild winter has made for iffy ice conditions unless a cold snap happens. Skiing also iffy. Think rock climbing. Early season this year. Lots of rock within 2 hrs. drive. Go to a local mountain shop to get best beta and buy a guidebook.

 

Destinations to ask about: Index, Leavenworth, North Bend, Smith, Squamish. You could use your entire trip at any one of those areas for rock.

thanks for the update on conditions...Where might I be able to partner up? I could always just get to the crag and find that 3 group, but thats kind of intrusive (even though the community is welcoming) and I like to have a rough plan...

Any of the climbing gyms might be a decent place to meet up. Seattle Bouldering Project, Vertical World, Stone Gardens, etc.
