      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!

Invitation to Karakoram.

Hi, 

I am new to Cascadesclimbers and actually I have never used a forum before so I don't know how it works, so yeah I am Shehryar Khattak a student of product design from Pakistan and I am a rock climber among the very few. We are open to host any big wall climbers who wants to come climb and exchange the knowledge with us.

I have recently started going in to Karakoram to learn big wall art by myself as rock climbing is very new here and we don't have any big wall climber who can take me under the wing, I will be please to make friends here. If you guys want to ask something about climbing or just want to chat please feel free to email me at "sktalkie@gmail.com" or comment below.

 

Thanks.

Welcome Khattak!  Yes, you are a long ways from the Cascade Mountains but you are certainly welcome to post up here.  We have a few big wall climbers on the site and some pretty nice wall climbs in the area (Index, Squamish, Smith Rock, Washington Pass, etc).  You should post up some pictures of the walls in the Karakorum you are looking to climb!  Maybe that will entice someone to visit.

If you are interested in big walling and A5 gear you should also check out the forum on supertopo.com.  There are a lot of Yosemite climbers who post there including John Middendorf who designed the A5 Haulbag and is still making innovative gear (he recently had a kickstarter for a new D4 portaledge).  He also has the site bigwalls.net which is a wealth of info on his gear designs.

  Cheers,

@JasonG It's a wild place and is in open zone  uncountable virgin peaks and the good thing you don't need a climbing permit.
