      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!

blah blah blah is correct, mister.

- first I'm gonna solo Willis Wall with my pants on backwards;

- then I'm gonna climb all kinds of hard stuff in several different areas that will make everybody think I'm alpine-ambitious and capable...;

- then do none of it, but report my grandiose wish-lists again same time next year and leave the impression that I'm a big shot just 'cause I'm "thinkin' 'bout it".

- then I'm gonna look up the word self-aggrandizement in the dictionary to see if any of this fits in.
