      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!

Rainier, Liberty Ridge this October

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Both my climbing partners for Liberty Ridge have cancelled on me. I would still like to do the route, weather permitting of course, before snowfall makes it too dangerous.

 

A 3-4 day climb sounds reasonable with the option of going faster if we feel like it.

 

Obviously glacier travel and crevasse rescue expereince is required, as well ice climbing experience.

 

I am a nurse practitioner and a mountain guide. This will be one of the bigger climbs I've done but is well within my technical capability.

 

Who wants to join me!? I'm flexible on dates.

Without a lot of snowfall between now and then, it will be a really dangerous and nearly impossible climb. But good luck.

Very much this. October is a very bad time to be on Liberty Ridge, might want to rethink your plans.

I think the glaciers have receded tremendously over the last 80 years. I did Liberty Ridge July 15, 1995 and had great conditions. Went back mid July 2013 and it was a huge pile of rubble from the Carbon all the way to Thumb Rock. Season on LR is getting earlier every year it seems.
