Question about Forbidden Peak, West Ridge Question about Forbidden Peak, West Ridge

My climbing partners and I have successfully climbed Rainier (Disappointment Cleaver route) a couple times and are looking for the next challenge for Summer 2016. We are all novices without any experience beyond Rainier, some much smaller climbs, and the local indoor climbing gym. Is the class of rock on Forbidden Peak West Ridge a good next step/progression for us? We've been doing some research, and it appears manageable. But, we would like to get ...

Summit Lookout on Mt Adams

Have not been to the summit of Mt Adams in years and am interested in knowing if
the old Summit Lookout is still visible. :?: In the 1960's the building was
partially exposed. I remember sitting on the roof. The front of the
building was exposed but the inside was filled with snow. In the1980's
it was covered. Wondering if the warming trend in temps and the ...

1 week in WA-where to go?

Hello all- I thought i posted this question in the past but can't seem to find it. Anyways I am thinking about doing a week trip to WA in the last week of September. I'm looking for some good day hikes (15 miles or less). I'm ok with some scrambling but am not a rock climber. I'm more into some big time scenery in the Cascades/Mt Baker or Olympic. With 4 or 5 hikes available, ...

Ptarmigan Traverse, July 17-21 2015

Thought I would give a quick conditions update. Last time I did this was about five years ago with substantial more snow. This time quite the opposite. Personal preferrence would be for more snow rather than less.

Cache Col: straight forward, we didnt rope up but had axes and crampons. Little move from snow to rock at top, no big deal. Snow free from col to just below red ledge.

Red Ledge: healthy patch of ...

Ptarmigan Traverse Transportation

I am looking to plan a trip through the Ptarmigan Traverse in June or July of next year. I will be going with two other people, and all of us will be 19. This presents a problem in that we won't really have the money to rent a car for that long with the added fees for renting under 25 (and we certainly don't want to rent two). Can anyone provide some advice as to ...
