      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!

West Coast Ice 2nd edition to printer 11/25/04

Recommended Posts

Open until 6 on Saturday, but if you're running late just give me a call. I don't usually get out of the store until 7-ish or later on a good day, so I'll probably still be here even if I've turned the lights off.

 

Thanks Murray.

 

Oops. Meant to type "Friday" in there - but if we manage to sneak through Vancouver in a reasonable amount of time we might just make it during normal business hours.

Nice book Don!!!!

 

After losing my mind on the teller last night at the co-op I went back today and bought it. The teller wouldnt let me out of the store with is becasuse no one knew how much it cost, so i threw 40$ at her and said keep the change, she didnt like that.

 

I am glad you kept all the obscure and rarley formed climbs in there as well as adding many arond the lower mainland, good price too!!!

 

Well done and only one weekend of cold gone by with out it the book, not bad at all!!!

any update on when the seattle shops might get it? I've called and they don't have it, and they don't know when they're getting it ..

I just spoke to Kevin. He says the book should start showing up in Seattle middle of next week, but very few US shops have ordered it, so it will be hard to find even then.

 

Incidentally, JayB just picked up a couple of copies on his way toward Whistler - maybe you can all PM him with orders and he can pick up a bunch more on his way back? That would save the time and cost of mail-ordering individual copies. Kevin just dropped off another 40 copies here, so we've got good stock for the next couple of weeks at least.

picked up my copy just in time to watch the ice melt away. anyway nice to see it. the only comment i'd have is that too many pics makes it a bit hard too read at first. but that's just my opinion.

When I bought mine on Friday afternoon, the dude at the climbing counter had to go rummaging in the back room to find it. He told me that it was the second to last copy.

 

The MEC in North Van had none when I walked over during lunch on Friday.

 

I just realized that was the first time I've been in two different MEC's in the same day!! laugh.gif

Seattle REI had a couple copies on the shelf over the weekend, the Mounties Boostore had several when I got mine.

If looking for this book at MEC look onthe bookshelf near the climbing counter not over in the "books section" with the coffee table books and paddling how-to books.
