      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!

Alpine Climbing by Steve Swenson, June 24th 7:00pm

Recommended Posts

Steve Swenson is the current president of the American Alpine Club and a member of

the Seattle Vertical World. He will discuss his forthcoming trip to an unclimbed 7,500

meter peak in the eastern Karakoram in India as well as climbing in Pakistan, China,

and Patagonia.

Seattle REI, June 24th 2009, 7:00pm

The Vertical World Climbing Team is one of the best in the nation:

 2009 First Place National Youth Bouldering Champions

 2008 First Place National Youth Bouldering Championships

 2007 Second Place National Youth Sport Climbing Championships

 2006 First Place National Youth Sport Climbing Championships

These dedicated climbers work hard every day to qualify for divisional and national

events, yet not all of them can afford to participate at these higher levels due to the

added costs. Last year, team members traveled to Colorado, Utah, and California to

compete at the National and Divisional levels. Team members represented the U.S.

Climbing Team at the World Championships in Sydney, Australia and Montreal,

Canada. You can help our youth climb and win with a gift to: Vertical World Climbing

Wow, This should be a great show! Go Steve and Go Club.

 

I hope to do a show later in the year for the Team. After seeing them in action, it's easy to support them. A community should do that after all.

Members of the Vertical World Climbing Team travel next week to Sacramento CA to attend the USAC Division 1 Championship event. This is the 2nd stop on the way to the US Youth National Event in SLC in July. The goal is to make the US Team, and attend the Youth World Championship in France in August.

 

Please come out and hear Steve, and support the kids effort in pursuit of their goals!

On behalf of the Vertical World Climbing Team, I would like to thank Steve Swenson, and all the people that came out to the event!

 

The money raised will help team members that otherwise could not afford it to travel to National & International climbing competitions.
