      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] Little Devil Peak - Standard 11/29/2015

Recommended Posts

Trip: Little Devil Peak - Standard

 

Date: 11/29/2015

 

Trip Report:

An inversion is always a good excuse to hike up to a high ridge and escape the gloom, ice, and fog of the lowlands. Even more so when you have to work off Thanksgiving Dinner. And work it off we did- it is close to 6k from the cars to where we camped on a scenic knob overlooking Marble Creek Cirque. The night was long, but not too cold when infused with enough Hunter and we were close enough to the peak that we could get a lazy start the next day, letting the sun warm us as we ate a leisurely breakfast. It was good to catch up with friends and talk of future adventures.

 

The climb itself would be of little interest to most of you- Little Devil is a straightforward walk up, but has fine views. You could probably do it in a day with an alpine start, even in the wintertime, but that would mean you would miss out on spending time in the lonely high country of Teebone Ridge. Given the forecast for the next few weeks I thought a few of you might enjoy some photos with that golden orb in the sky and some fierce peaks of the North Cascades in wintry conditions:
