      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!

TNF sale

Recommended Posts

Normally I don't shill for The Man, but the North Face store downtown has some cheeeeep plastic boots right now. Push through the softgoods jungle (what the hell does "A5" have to do with yuppie leisurewear?) to the back, where you will find Koflach Arctis Expe, Degree, Vertical, and Viva Soft boots for about $150. They didn't have my size.

 

Also: Mythos and a few other La Sportiva rock shoes for $90. wave.gif

"A5"? Isn't that an Audi car??? What's that got to do with North Face? Edited by Eerie

Doesn't look like they make much big wall gear anymore, unless aid climbing now requires that you wear logo-infested shorts and linen-cotton blend shirts in fashionable faded plaids. wazzup.gif

Those shorts are pretty pimp, though, regardless of what logo's on 'em. Nice pants, too, but someone needs to tell all those clothing designers that cargo pockets aren't worth shit and don't look much better.
