      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Moving to Yakima

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I am moving to Yakima to start medical school in a couple of weeks. I am looking for some partners to climb. I don't climb particularly hard but my technical skills are up to snuff. My main goals are in the alpine realm but craging at Tieton sound like a great afternoon. Hit me up and lets climb. I have a rack rope and tools... no screws yet at least.

I'm sure you will have plenty of free time to practice your climbing skills now that you are in medical school. =)

 

Just out of curiosity, what medical school is this? My understanding was that for in state students, the UW med school either placed students in their first two years in Seattle or Spokane (or Alaska, Montana, or Idaho if you are from those states). Are they now placing students in Yakima, or is this for WSU?

DPS yeah thats the hope any ways.... It is Pacific Northwest University. It is an Osteopathic medical school so that is probably why its off most people's radar.

The late, great Joe Puryear was from the Yakima region, as was Paul Soboleski. Good luck finding partners. As you mentioned you are not far from Tieton and Mt. Rainier. Best of luck in grad school and finding partners.

I'll be in Yakima during the first/second week of March. Let me know if you'll be around to climb then. Thanks!
