      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!

Entire Picket range on paraglider

Recommended Posts

Nick Neynens flew over entire Picket Range earlier this summer. He took off from Artist Point and landed past Ross Lake. This is definitely first in North Cascades. Respect! It was on August 06 or 07, smoke and all.

Jason, there were some insane flights this year. Jessie Williams flew from Sauk, around back of Shucksan and Baker to Mosquito Lake Rd. Paul Baron flew from Blanchard to Concrete, over Sisters Range, Nick traversed entire Pickets and Sawtooth ranges, plus traversed Canadian Rockies unsupported, Jessie Williams flew from Blanchard to Hope, Cedar Wright flew from Tumwater to Pateros, Mitch Riley flew from Blanchard to Tiger, following Skagit flats and foothills of the Cascades. Alex Raymont flew from Pemberton to Squamish and back to Pemby via 213.24km triangle. This was Canadian triangle record, which stood only for a couple of days, as Igor Tolsky flew 238.5km triangle only a couple of days later. Benjamin Jordan flew from Roosville , MT to McBride, smoke and all in 50 days.
