      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] Black Peak - South Route (ski) 5/12/2016

Recommended Posts

Trip: Black Peak - South Route (ski)


Date: 5/12/2016


Trip Report:

A couple friends and I took Thursday off to climb/ski Black Peak. 'Twas worth it.


Early morning light as we cross Lake Anne; the snow was firm and good for skinning.




The clouds kept the snow from slopping up on us.




Brennan makes his way across Wing Lake




North Cascades panorama




Summit of Black Peak with the peaks of the Cascade Pass area on the horizon




And now for the payoff... Brennan drops in from the saddle above Wing Lake




Skiing through a bit of debris toward Wing Lake




Black Peak




Skiing back across Lake Anne, with the peaks of the Liberty Bell group on the horizon (I think...)




The ski out from Lake Anne was ok, with a few combat turns in the trees, but we were able to keep skis on all the way back to the car at Rainy Pass.


Approach Notes:

All lakes are frozen, everything is snow except the last bit up from the saddle above Wing Lake which is 50/50 rock/snow.
