      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!

WTB: Lots of stuff

Recommended Posts

I'll second the above comment about not scrimping on the down coat. When I went with RMI a few years ago, I had already climbed a bunch of volcano's and had everything on their list except the coat.

 

It kind of pissed me off that they required that I have one, but I rented one from them. At the first break, our rope leader suggested that we get our coats out so that we wouldn't get chilled. I put it on and sat on my pack and thought "WOW". It was just like sitting on my couch in the living room.

 

I had always taken a couple of fleeces and shell, but didn't like to stop long because of the cold breezes. I was so convinced that day, that I bought one. Now if you see someone sitting on a summit in a big-ass coat, it is probably me. It's the only thing I take to keep warm. Compresses well and doesn't weigh that much (even though it looks huge).
