      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!

Dry Ice Festival Wrap Up

Recommended Posts

A big thanks to all the participants on Saturday's Ice Fest here at Cascade Crags, and to the sponsors: Black Diamond, Arc'Teryx, Montrail, Grivel,and Petzl/Charlet Moser.

The event was a success in that most people used the leashless tools and nobody, including the spectators, got bloody. That is remarkable considering all the sharp pointy things in a small area.

Congratulations and thanks to Roger Strong on his help with all participants and on his spanking everyone on the expert route. Congrats to Todd for winning the Expert division, and for Jake on flashing the Novice. Some cool prizes were handed out and then we all got sweaty palms watching Roger's slide show.

Everyone was surprised by a visit by Will Gadd. He hung out for a couple of hours with us and then pre-ran the routes. He spent a few minutes thinking out a couple of moves on the Expert route, which didn't bode well for the rest of us. He had a great time and want's to come back next year.

Thanks again to everyone and have a safe season,

That's Sue, one of our regulars here at the Crags. This was her first time on the wall. She is a good rock climber and did pretty well on the Novice mixed route.

BTW, Merridy flew through the novice route and styled nicely on the advanced route! Great job Merridy, after climbing hard all day in the gym just prior to the comp! Mike-When will you post some other photos at the Cascade Crags website?

I got an email from Mike Palmer... they are currently trying to decide if we are going to have it this year.

 

I would encourage everyone who would like the opportunity to try out new tools from various companies in addition to watching and/or entering a drytool comp shoot Mike an email at info@cascadecrags.com and let him know you'd be stoked if cascade crags came through!
