      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!

Heading in soon and I was wondering if there is any ice on the approach or descent. Are crampons and an axe necessary right now? Haven't been there before. Thanks.

For sure not if you go in Silverstar Creek, which is probably the best access for the route versus over Burgandy col. As long as you don;t get sucked into the slide alder.

Did this route a few weeks ago approaching via Silver Star Creek. No snow other than tiny patches at the base at that time. Didn't need more than tennies.

We stashed bikes near the Burgundy trail, drove around and approached via Silverstar. Stay left out of shrubbery and then cross over in open terrain. There is really no bushwhacking on the approach. Then we descended down the W side and biked back to the car. Twas lovely and seems WAY less masochistic than carrying overnight gear up to Burgundy col.
