      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!

Steve's book "Karakoram: Climbing Through the Kashmir Conflict"

Recommended Posts

If you have not done it yet, I would highly recommend reading book by Steve Swenson "Karakoram: Climbing Through the Kashmir Conflict". Swenson is Seattle native and one of the best alpinists. I saw his talk tonight at Backcountry Essentials in Bellingham. If anyone plans on visiting Pakistan it also provides a ton of useful info. Buy it, read it, enjoy it.

I read it last year and agree. Great perspective on climbing at a high level for may years, and a great view into the changes and cultures in that part of the world.
