      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!

Soloed DKH Sunday. Okay coverage but mega icy so plan on sitting out awhile to allow things to soften. Saw at least one set of tracks from Saturday so it is getting skied.

skinned from parking lot to top of palmer lift. Apart from the wind claiming the bag for my skins it was all good. You have to be careful with where you skin and the surface is fairly dirty but it is possible. It gets a little to icey about half way up the palmer lift and you can make it with careful pole placement but you would really have better luck with crampons.

 

Skiing down is really firm and everyone I saw was coming down the cat track along the palmer lift. The cat track and really fairly fun to ski for about the middle 2/3 before it gets really thin and you have to be careful due to the rocks. Overall, I'd stick to the cat track one the way down, but you can get away skinning up outside the rope line.
