Conditions update, 12/19/2011
My first conditions update in 2011 is probably going tp be a bit of a disappointment because mostly I'm just going to link to the very fine Conditions thread on CascadeClimbers.com. But it has the most up-to-date info at the moment...
2011-2012 Conditions Thread Here
Lillooet: Grapevine says In.
Mt Baker Ski Area: Death Picnic is in. Cosley-Houston was attempted earlier in the year but I am not sure it's seen an ascent yet this season.
Banks Lake: Trotsky's Revenge, Punchbowl in thin, and other routes forming. Check cc.com thread for latest pics.
Mountain Loop Highway: Nice winter alpine climb on the NW face of Sloan.
Lennox: Scouted once, nothing.
Leavenworth: Nothing in in the Icicle, Drury was forming but top fell down recently. Some real good efforts in the alpine, however, with very early season ascents of Triple Couloirs, NBC on Colchuck, and an attempt on NE Couloir on Dragontail.
Alpental: Due to lack of precip in the last three weeks and coupled with easy access, Alpental has seen some of the most activity this season so far. Flow Reversal with number of ascents, some interesting lines at Snow Lake, North Face of Chair multiple ascents including one with a fine self-rescue after a soloist broke his leg, New York Gully with multiple ascents, and so on.
Strobach: Some significant scouting of the area has been possible due to lack of snow and therefore easy access to 609 road, but nothing fat yet.
Mt Rainier: The Mikey climbs seem thin but in, topropable. Lovers Lane and Zipper in, also climbs on North Face of Denman
