      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!

Citing past racial insensitivity Duane Raleigh resigns from R&I

Recommended Posts



“We can’t accept any level of racism or discrimination in our community. We are still stuck in the ‘good ole boys club’ of climbing, and it’s past time for a change.”

So you know that my words are backed with action, I am stepping aside as publisher and editor in chief and empowering the new internal leadership with the tools they need to make the climbing community a better, more inclusive place for everyone. I urge you to support these efforts, because at this critical time in our country we need everyone pulling in the same direction and on the right side of history.

To the climbing community, I sincerely apologize, and am honored to have the opportunity to help affect change.



Duane Raleigh
