      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!

He is also a high altitude film-maker/cinematographer, earning film credits for NOVA and National Geographic Explorer, as well as for the feature film, "Seven Years in Tibet". He has also been honored by the American Alpine Club for his rescue of Beck Weathers during the 1996 Everest expedition featured in the book Into Thin Air.

 

Peter visits The Mountaineers to share still images and video from his trips to Everest, along with anecdotes from his travels. He is also giving us a sneak peek at his new documentary, Secrets of Shangri-La, which debuts on November 18. Secrets of Shangri-La covers his most recent explorations into Nepal's remote Kingdom of Mustang, where he and his team discovered and documented ancient Buddhist texts and images.

 

Tickets for this show are $10 members/$15 general, and are available through The Mountaineers Bookstore or by calling 206-521-6001. Don't miss this amazing show!
