      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!

Need A Climbing Partner For Rainier from 9/7-9/13

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking for a climbing partner for Rainier, any time between the 7th of September to the 13th.

The last 3 months i've been a crew leader for a conservation corps in Colorado, and this past 3 weeks i've been working on a trail crew at 13'000 on Mount Bierstadt, so i'm pretty acclimated, and ready to carry whatever extra I can fit in my huge pack to help. I also am a Wilderness First Responder.

I do not have any glacier or alpine experience beyond spending my past 3 summers working on the summit trails of fourteeners (Holy Cross, Maroon Bells) In Colorado.

I've got a 2 person alpine tent, all the gear, blah blah blah. I just need but rope and a climbing partner, so let me know your route, how long you plan on staying, i'm sure we can work something out!

Also, let me know if you are comfortable exploring the ice caves.

You can reach me via email or on my cell phone at 612-232-4666 if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

You might want to check out this report




We were planning a trip to the Emmons this weekend and bailed due to fresh snow cover on the crevasses. I did the DC a month ago and can tell you if not for the guides' trail the South East side of the mountain would be a route finding nightmare due to all the melted snow bridges.


If you do go, be sure an post the report!
