      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!

Dru, I notice your peak is significantly lower, and significantly less technical. Kind of like the thing with feet: Big feet, big meat. the_finger.gif

You pose an interesting question, Dru.

Is the plural of bigfoot: bigfeet, bigfoots, bigfoot?

there also are very very few technical rock climbs (5.7 and up) over 10 pitches in CO. CO is closer to the Tetons and Winds for that than PNW. Better winter alpine in CO however. But, yes, there are no big ass glaciers in CO.

 

Don't move here to slog, you'll get sick of it after a year or two. After a bit, glaciers will be in your way, although they do make any climb 500% better cuz of the added scenery.

 

Don't move to the PNW b/c of the waddington range. it's just as big of a deal to get there if you live in seattle or live in new york.

Sort of like thinking an alpine start will ensure you'll have the route to yourself in RMNP?
