North Cascades rock

Nice one Radek, how was it? The left one is Golden Horn with large scree field underneath and the right one Tower mtn. brings back good memories...

Re: North Cascades rock

Thanks Haydar.

It was an OK climb (as in not that much actual climbing - much 3rd & 4th class stuff) but the views kinda make up for that.

Yeah, I just saw that you added the G. Horn page - can't believe I did catch that earlier. Looks like a fun one as well. Take care.

Re: North Cascades rock


much thanks for the corrections - I've added the right links (with credit :) in the caption.

Those are two great pages you've added on very cool looking mountains!

Not enough

Is it just me, or is there not enough snow cover for early June in the North Cascades. Of course, living in North Norway, my snow realities have altered somewhat, but still, it looks more like early July to me in your photos. Inspired to do more in the Washington Pass area thanks to your pics.

Re: Not enough

Light snowpack this year, combined with the fact that the view is to the south-facing slopes of the mountains.

Re: Not enough

Thanks Darin.

yeah - definitely pretty dry even on north facing aspects (like looking towards Liberty Bell). The weather's been sucking so that despite low-snow year, hard to catch a good day on a weekend.
