      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!

Free Solo wins Oscar!

Recommended Posts

If you haven't seen the movie yet, do! Even though it's not really a "climbing movie", it's a great documentary about Alex and an incredible solo on Free Rider on ElCap.

we were able to buy/download the movie to our PC and watch it for $10 plus some tax.  well worth the money.

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.

I first saw this excellent movie  in Seattle with about 10 people and then saw it again in Bishop with about 100.  It is on TV on March 3 on the National Geographic channel.  Mikey's contribution behind and in front of the camera is superb.
