      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!

Looking to do a few trips around Marblemount if anybody is interested. Just now making my push from scrambling to glacier travel. Ideally looking for something with an icy traverse going to a Class 3 and maybe some Class 4 rock scramble to summit. Been doing 3:1 pulley at the house along with ascending with prusiks with industrial equipment, I now have it drilled in my head. I have ice axe/crampons, carabiners. Went ahead and bought 30m rope, harness, 2 snow pickets, 19cm ice screw. Objectives I have in mind are El Dorado, Colonial Peak to Snowfield, Bacon Peak, West McMillan Spire, or Elephant Butte, open to others as well. Will climb with anybody really, feel free to reach out and I'll send number/email. Have full, combined highlights of several trip reports of each written down that I can fax or email. I'm not the fastest but I make it, if time is an issue I'm willing to start a day ahead and meet at camp if it's a trailhead I can get to. Snowfield for example, I would want to do in 3 days even though it can be completed in 2 or even 1.
