      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!

Trip: N Cascades - Shuksan Fischer Chimney Conditions 8/3/15

 

Date: 8/3/2015

 

Trip Report:

We scrambled the Fischer Chimneys on Aug 3rd. Trail is in great shape and easy to follow carins up the chimneys. Winnie's slide is mostly down to ice with a strip of snow on the right. I had an axe and a sumtec and led up placing two screws in the ice to belay my gf up with her one axe. The upper curtis is exposed ice at the tongue (plenty of running water near the bivy sites) but low angle and didn't require a belay. One sketchy crevasse bridge on the high point before hells highway, then smooth sailing to the summit. We down climbed everything to Winnie's slide where we found a fixed anchor far skiers left from which I lowered my gf and then down climbed. Overall super fun day climbing with a variety of terrain. Just going to get icier. We were almost exactly 12 hrs car to car.

 

Summit register is in place but missing paper. If you go up, bring some write in the rain paper!
