Washington Pass question

Has anyone been up there? Is there parking space at the big switchback on the E side? Blue Lake trailhead?

Mt McLoughlin Skiing this weekend?

It looks pretty hot this week, anyone think there is still some skiing left?
I was down at Bailey 2 weeks ago in cooler weather and still lots of snow. Likewise I was skiing on Bachelor this weekend and it still has a tremendous amount of snow. I wanted to take a shot at skiing McLoughlin, with Mt. Adams as a fallback plan.

What do you think?

Fire closure updates in Glacier Peak Wilderness

Has the Buck Creek Pass Trail reopened? I've got a week-long loop planned that hinges on this trail being open! I do have a contingency plan, but it adds a number of miles.

Thanks for any info on this.

Mt Hood (south side route) / late start time questions


Planning on climbing Hood later this month with a friend of a friend who wants to take the Palmer lift at 8am to start the climb. Ive never been up Hood but have some climbing experience and such a late start time sounds like a bad idea. Hearing it's been pretty warm up there... Even with cooler weather, would such a late start ever be a good idea? Hearing he climbs the mountain several ...

Current trips??

Not much to offer yet, but enjoyed a quick trip to Erie for a few ups and downs near the Powerline wall with Andrew and new rope. Perfect day sharing the Mountain and views with others all over the place.

Advice for visiting Kiwi climber/hiker

Hi all,

I'm from New Zealand and will be in Oregon and/or Washington for 3-4 weeks from Mid August to Mid September. I'd love to do some hiking and mountaineering in the beautiful looking Cascades but would like some advice...

Trips that I've been looking into include Rainer (of course!), Eldorado Peak, Shuksan, Mt. St. Helens, the Ptarmigan Traverse and maybe a section of the PCT or Copper Ridge trail. I obviously won't be able ...

Mt Hood April 29-30

Hi- advice, please! I am planning on going to Mt Hood end of April with a friend. Looking at mountain weather forecast, looks like days without a fair amount of snow are pretty rare. Where could I find detailed avalanche forecast? If Hood is not in, could you recommend similar routes to Hood south side in the area? Thanks, Charlie
