      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] Mt Slesse - NE Buttress 8/7/2015

Recommended Posts

Trip: Mt Slesse - NE Buttress

 

Date: 8/7/2015

 

Trip Report:

Wondering the status of the glaciers on the NE Buttress route and if ice axes and crampons are required? I've heard rumors that these are not required this year. Anyone have any beta by chance?

tennis shoe alpinism this summer. Though something a little stiffer soled may be appreciated if you're going down crossover pass. Last good water just before the notch crossing into the "pocket glacier" basin. On the descent first running water appears just beyond crossover pass/"wooded stump". I would bring a second car and do the south side descent if at all possible.

 

Nose plugs so you don't have to imbibe the stench of human shit all over the route may be useful as well.

Our own little piece of The Valley in the good old NW. Are all the ledges sticky too?
