      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!

Trip: Labor Pains, N.Early Winter Spire x2 -


Date: 5/29/2016


Trip Report:



So I did this route last September, then again last weekend. It is a challenging, gamey, and unheralded route that could use some updating. The WA Pass supertopo book covers it well, and I did 2 trs on it on my web journal. Enjoy.

Thanks for the report! How are the snow conditions up there? Are crampons necessary, or is it soft enough to manage with approach shoes?

The direct early-season trail is barely workable the snow is soft down low and quite firm up high still. The slopes in general are not that steep so no Crampons were used.
