      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!

Eric's base camp is one of my favorite sites. Good place to go for a variety of climbing ideas.

 

I particularly like the sled dogs for the long winter approach.

In eric's trip report for Hoodoo Peak or something he mentions that Libby Lake is the highest lake in the state. WRONG BIOTCH!!! rockband.gifthe_finger.gifthe_finger.gif It is edged out oh so slightly by Tranquil and Isolation Lakes in the Enchantments, Tranquil being between 7760 and 7800. Ooohhh.. who's wrong.. pitty.gifcry.gifcry.gifhahahahahhhahhahahhaha

 

Yes I'm very very bored.

I agree. Tranquil and Isolation Lakes are higher than Libby Lake (7,618 ft) by the elevations indicated.

 

Last September before climbing up in the Libby Lake area, Tread Tramp and I stopped in at the Winthrop R.S. to pick up info on the trail in since we had none other than what was in my memory. The ranger gave me a one-page write up on the trail in which it proclaimed Libby Lake as being the highest in the state. At first I didn't believe it so went about searching my maps. I figured there had to be one in the Enchantments higher. I did not locate a lake in the Enchantments right away, got sidetracked, and thus assumed Libby Lake must be the highest (USFS can't be wrong, can they? rolleyes.gif).

 

Thanks for doing the extra legwork, Mega Nerd. bigdrink.gif

what defines a lake versus a glacial tarn etc... does it have to have an outlet river to be a lake?

A tarn Lake is a lake that forms in a glacial cirque.
