      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!

[TR] North Twin Sister - West Ridge 11/28/2015

Recommended Posts

Trip: North Twin Sister - West Ridge

 

Date: 11/28/2015

 

Trip Report:

I broke my last camera over a year ago and Josh forgot his, so all we took are crappy camera phone shots that I'm not going to bother to upload [Josh: if you got any good ones maybe throw them or a link to them in the comments?].

Anywho, we climbed the west ridge of north twin on Saturday. To my surprise, we had the whole mountain (whole range?) to ourselves for the day.

 

Gear Notes:

There was a good deal of snow on north aspects but the route itself was surprisingly passable, we didn't break out the pons until the final 100 ft, although they were mandatory for the north route descent.

 

Approach Notes:

As we anticipated, the road is not, in my view, terribly bikable at the moment, there was about 4-6in. of snow from a mile or two in, and thick frost and ice before that.
