      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 just want to note that I regularly bump into all kinds of people and climb which many of them, some of whom have done the Clackamas CC class.


Every one of the CC college folks has been solid and safer than the casual climbers you usually bump into. Based on what I have seen from the students of ccc, 6 or 7 so far (and not even knowing what classes they took) and not even seeing the course syllabis Don is suggesting, I'd highly recommend the course and the college. Those folks are solid safe, while still recognising they still have some learning left.


Whoever is running the classes out there should be commended.


High regards;
