      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!

Here's the deal....I just committed myself to Med School at Bastyr in Kenmore, WA....and will be moving out that way in August. Any ideas on where to live....that is going to keep me somewhat sane and able to get away pretty quickly? Thanks......

Yes. As long as you don't try to "get away" during rush hour.


Check out Index (< 1 hr, excellent cragging. supposedly new bouldering area up near there too), Stevens Pass (1+ hr lift skiing), and Leavenworth (2 hrs. cragging, alpine climbing, hiking). Lots of hiking possibilities on Hwy 2.


You'll also be pretty close to escaping up 405 to I-5 N or I-90. Actually pretty good location for getting to the mountains, just not during rush hour. 405 sucks then.
