      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!

Cascadian snow?

Recommended Posts

Anyone been down the Cascadian recently? I'm guessing it's all dry by now, but didn't want to get surprised by a few hundred feet of bulletproof snow up high...

 

thanks

Erik

Climbed it yesterday upper snow field is still there but thin not good for climbing. I scrambled up the moat. Was glad to have my ice ax.

Climbed W. Ridge Saturday... no snow you *have* to walk on, but it was soft enough to plunge step down about 500' with a pole. If I had an axe, would have plunged step a further 500' or so above as well... but it was a bit steeper.

 

Decent snow on the bivies after Long John Tower... they'll be water there for a little longer.
