      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!

Lillooet? Strobach?

Recommended Posts

Anyone been to Lillooet or Strobach recently? and/or have a good guess about conditions over Christmas weekend?

Temps look good as far as I can tell...

I have not been into Strobach. However, with the snowfall, I think breaking trail into there would be an all-day effort, or if you follow the sleds and skin up the road, 3 hours. And the climbs are fed by snowmelt, which is great cause we sure have the snow, but the temps have been 1000-2000 which means not much melt AND it's really only December, so if you go in I wouldn't expect anything steep to be fat, you might end up climbing a semi-buried Sad Ce'bu. Strobach in my experience has always been most rewarding later in the season, not early season. Lillooet, I don't know I haven't been looking at the reports but I would wager money all the usual suspects are in.

Jacob, check out the "West Coast Ice" group on facebook for Lillooet conditions. There are several recent reports from the area. And the forecast looks good up there with temps below freezing thru the weekend. Good luck, happy hunting!
