      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!

I'll second that! For a gear shop in any town, they are amazing. Plus they are in internet sales too, so have a wide variety of stuff. Went in there a few weeks ago to see if they carried the Beckey books (didn't have the maroon one) and although they weren't carrying books at the time, he ordered them for me! Screw REI! Plus these guys are strong climbers who know what's up, unlike some gear whore wanna be at REI (at least in Eugene - I know some Seattle REI folks that are pretty cool). BackCountry Gear - run by climbers for climbers! Hey, this could be an SAT analogy question: REI is to BEckfest as Backcountry Gear is to:________

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: SMiffy Rope Up Yeah!

 

 

These guys will outcompete Mountain Gear, Shoreline, and are a lot more friendly and more knowledgeable than places like REI. Hell, they are even better albeit much smaller shop than Teton Profiteering in Jackson!

Ordered Yates BW Gear Rack Monday night, arrived Thursday!

 

I first called the 'local climbing store' Feathered Friends because I need a rack for this weekend. Ya, they have the Yates BW gear rack in stock. So I drove down Monday to buy it. It took repeated explanations to the sales droid that I wanted a gear rack, not a harness. So he points out a gear rack on the wall. "No, that's a Misty Mountain. See the label?" Then he spies the next one, with a Yates logo. "No, that's the Yates free rack. I want the BIG WALL rack."

 

"Oh, we don't have that."

 

No shit.

 

Went home, fired up the laptop, and now I have my gear rack. On time and under budget.

I, too, have been really happy with backcountrygear.com. I've only ever ordered over the internet from them, but it was fast and easy and they were very helpful when I had a small sizing problem. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Always been good for me as well. Free shipping and no tax are two major factors that have earned them my orders.

Thumbs up to Mike and the crew there at backcountry. I have delt with them in person and over the internet and have great things to say about their friendliness and service.

Mike and Co. just ordered me Stubai aluminum crampons and they got them to me fast and at an excellent price. This is the way all companies should operate....
