      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!

Those of you who know Jim- Is there something that we could do for him, collectively? I'd be willing to pony up a few bucks. Something to encourage him to get better, like a new piece of gear, or something that he needs while he is recovering?

Hey Loren,

Thanks for the thoughts. At this time I have no idea if have any suggestions, since we are still in the wait and see mode of Jim's recovery. Only family can still visit as he is still in ICU.

Someday I hope those who have expressed support for Jim and those who assisted at the scene can all get together, have a beer, and enjoy the fact that people do care about other people.

Keep sending all you r good energy and as always thanks for all your support.

I know that he isn't out of the woods yet, but once Jim is in the mood to drink beers again we should throw a big party! But not on a Tuesday night.

SWEET! HAPPINESS!

This accident has been on my mind quite a bit since he is a good friend of some of my acquaintences, but I have never had the chance to meet him - what a way to start the weekend!

This is great news!!! I have been trying to be patient, knowing that it might take a while for him to wake up, but I'm not very good at it. Thanks for keeping us posted, Chad. I feel very encouraged.

To whomever or whatever you pray, say one for our alpine brother. Although I don't know the guy, I can't help but follow this story. Hang in there, my man.

Even seeing Jim in a coma at Wenatchee hospital on Sunday night I had a feeling he would be ok. I've lost 3 friends over the years to mountaineering accidents but never had someone this close to me hurt this seriously in a rock climbing accident. Jim is a fucking rock and a great human being and I am very happy and relieved that he is well on his way to recovery. I really want to thank all of you guys for all of the support you've shown over the week. I know everyone on here flips each other shit from time to time but I really believe that everyone truly cares for everyone else and I would trust my life to just about anyone on this board. Fuck the critics, this is a good climbing board and I'm proud to be a part of it! Here's to Jimbo and here's to all of you. [big Drink]
