      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 2/27/2016

Recommended Posts

Trip: North Twin Sister - West Ridge

 

Date: 2/27/2016

 

Trip Report:

Just a conditions update: me and a buddy climbed the west ridge of North Twin last Saturday. It was in great wintery conditions. Someone had skied the North Face a few days earlier.

 

There was a new-ish sign on the gate that said something about no access or something but I couldn't really make it out, better be circumspect if you are planning to go.

We found challenging rime ice towards the top but made it OK with a short section of roped climbing.

Descent down the north side was easy, lousy crust on the north side though from all the warm weather last week.

 

 

Gear Notes:

Rope, axe.

 

Approach Notes:

Biked up the road to 3000', snowshoed and hiked to where the scrambling started.
