      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!

Ingraham Direct TR

Recommended Posts

Kyle Flick and I climbed Ingraham Direct on 1-19, just 17 hours short of breaking the new speed record. We were pissed, but will keep training.


The other parties Sunday morning were turning back at Ing. flats due to the high winds and spindrift. We decided to stick it out, since Kyle needs the training for Denali, and I'm too dumb to know better. 'Ol Dan wouldn't have broken any record with that wind on Sunday. Summited around 7.30am, just as the sun was rising, and visibility was waning. However, a 1,000 feet below the summit, things were clear again, but windy still. Ingraham Direct route in excellent shape. No postholing, no problematic crevasses, no one on the route or summit. Awesome time to be climbing Rainier.
