Trying To Track Down Info On Some Old Bellingham Area Guidebooks

Hey folks, this might be a bit of a long shot but I recently I have been doing a deep dive into Bellingham and Chuckanut climbing history, and I am trying to track down a few old guidebooks for some info. The main two I am looking for are "A Rock Climber's Guide to Bellingham Rock!" by Jason Henrie 1997, and "Boulders and cliffs : climber's guide to lowland rock in the Skagit & Whatcom Counties" by Dallas Kloke 1971. I reached out to Henrie, but he said he no longer has copies of his guidebooks, and there is an old thread on here saying the WWU OC had a copy for checkout in 2007, but ..read more

Back in the day of cascade climbers there was a "trip report" tab/page or whatever you call it where all the trip reports funneled into "one" tab/page or whatever you call it. I miss that. Now it's under each category like freshies , north Cascades, central , international and so on. Is there a way I can see trip reports in one page like it used to be?  Please flip me shit for my ignorance in this matter it brings me much joy.    Cheers ..read more

I've added a link to a webpage titled "Statistical Climbing Guide for Fred Beckey", in the General Discussion/Personal Climbing Web Pages, on Cascade Climbers. The website contains numerous articles I've written looking at Fred Beckey's climbing career from a statistical point of view. But the website contains much more, including a trio of articles on summit register entries. Enjoy ..read more

Glacier Peak Mid-June? And what boots?

Greetings - haven't posted here in a while but am doing a mid-June Cascade's trip & need beta. I am meeting family for a mid-June climbing trip (6/12-6/17). Initially I had hoped to try Glacier but preliminary research is showing not many people do it this time of year. I'm assuming mid-June is the isothermal muck season between May skiing and July climbing?  Is this correct? Do people do it in June or is it just too wet and soft? Also - what boots do people carry for Cascade volcanos in June?  I've done Shuksan and Baker in early June and brought my Nepals - is that the suggeste ..read more

I know it’s long been sport to rip on REI, I’ve even at one point torn up my membership after they pissed me off with whatever, but man they have fallen since the days back when they were on Capitol Hill.  I even now know multiple really good people who work for them (or I think they still work for them…been lots of layoffs). But man they just keep digging deeper into the shite hole in my opinion.   I admit I still do have a membership. Bought a pair of cycling shoes a couple weeks ago with the sale.  But this kind of crap: https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/experience/nation ..read more

After a couple seasons in The Creek I am a slut for the 4"-8" size range... Hard to search for cracks by their size though. Who's got suggestions for offwidth cracks in Squamish/Index/Leavenworth/Vantage, etc.? I most keen on the 5.10 - 5.11 range but I'll happily take any suggestions  ..read more

2024 Conditions - Snowpack
Climber's Board
by
3M ago
As someone not local to WA state (I'm from Vancouver, BC) - I'm curious to hear opinions on the snowpack (or lack thereof) this year and how it compares to other drier years...will routes on Rainier, Shuksan and Baker have an earlier and shorter "prime" season before the glacier travel gets complicated? Have been thinking about N Ridge of Baker since the road has been repaired, as well as a route on Shuksan or Rainier, but I fear the lack of snow this year will impact the flexibility of trip planning with a shorter season, or forcing complex glacier travel and more calf burning bare ice?  ..read more
