      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] Kaleetan Peak - Melakwa Lake South Route 10/23/2015

Trip: Kaleetan Peak - Melakwa Lake South Route


Date: 10/23/2015


Trip Report:

Two of use decided to finish this peak on 10/23. No snow whatsoever thus far along the route. Plenty water sources so it is unnecessary to carry more than a litter at a time with a light filter. Approach to Melakwa Lake is quite popular. Once at the ridge that leads to Kaleetan solitude starts and only scramblers/hardy hikers are found. In the past I had been turned back twice because of avalanche concerns this time though without any snow the peak was quite simple. Summit post says the final gully is class 3 but it was more like class 2. Not nearly as scary as I thought it would be. Views are spectacular from up there.


My GPX if interested:

Forest Road paved all the way until about 0.5 miles from trail head.
