    Might be time to bring back Pub Club and make it a Whatcom/Skagit edition!
  2. What hapened with the site?

    Issue is resolved. I really apologize for this issue. I accidentally deleted a configuration file on the server which basically caused our server to stop listening to http and only https.
  3. What hapened with the site?

    Thanks for pointing this out. I can see the issue and I'll look into how to fix it.

    @Bronco I need to fix that, but you can access that here: https://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/tripreport
  5. Free Solo wins Oscar!

    If you can see it in the theaters you have to. In a way I wonder if the people who voted for best picture actually saw it. I've never experienced something like that in a cinema, especially knowing exactly what happens. It's really a remarkable achievement. Props to @Wallstein what an amazing thing to have been part of.
  6. I have some Merino dress shirts that are fine, and a 320 Icebreaker that does have a few holes in it, but it's also odd and I wear it quite a bit. Thinking about it a bit more I think it's mostly the age, usage. My other hypothesis is because I don't wash them frequently, the build up of salt is weakening the fibers.
  7. Granted I think 3+ years of those were busy with baby/kids and not getting a ton of usage. I originally thought wool products lasted "forever" but I think the fibers are much much thinner in these garments, and lets face it not the greatest business model to make something that never breaks down. Glad to not be the only one to consider critters. They started falling apart after I moved into a new house, but that also coincided with getting out much more often. Which brand are people having the most luck with now? I noticed there are about another dozen brands in the marketplace now.
  8. I'm curious how long people's merino tops and bottoms have been lasting from Smartwool or Icebreaker? Most of the stuff I have is Icebreaker and around 10 years old, I've been really happy with them, but in the last few years they have totally deteriorated. Lots of small holes mostly on the thinner stuff. I generally don't wash them a lot and hang dry them. Part of the reason I'm asking is while I haven't seen any other signs, I wonder if I have carpet beetles in my house and want to rule that out before buying more.
  9. Government Shutdown

    Let's just not forget these people didn't get paid for a month, and risk not getting paid in the future. Not being able to get up to Paradise for the 74rd time isn't a big deal.
  10. Government Shutdown

    I suspect they will open the road all the way. The website says they plan on resuming normal operations. My guess is they didn't have time to fully winterize the facilities for non-usage so they likely need to get up there to prevent damage.
  11. Dogs and Mt St Helens

    I will say this is one thing that drives me fucking nuts, and I'm a dog owner. The dog shits and they put it in the bag and then leave it there to retrieve on their way back, like everyone else who walks by it doesn't care.
  12. Winter climbing in Bend?

    I think there is a picture on the Coavy IG account from a big slide on Tumalo. Definitely check the avy conditions report.
  13. Concerning snow pack

    Come on Rad didn't they teach you that in Chem 140? (Moles of water * density / enthalpy of water) / (angle of slope * speed)
  14. Concerning snow pack

    I read something by NWAC, I think on IG, that basically said the same thing in that we need some major rain for long term stability. A Bellingham based photographer got swept over a cliff in an in-bounds slide the day before opening at Baker, but thankfully he was fine.
  15. Looking to get a new Suunto watch and the seem to have 20 different watches now instead of 3. Anyone have any recommendations for one that works well for climbing and multi-sport?
