      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!

I'm a complete newbie... only been climbing once with Snowbyrd and Simona (absolutely the best mentors a climber could ask for) out at Frenchman's Coulee... my goals are to learn how to trad climb, learn how to lead, pass the mounties basic course, to tackle some multi pitch routes... oh yeah, and to have loads of fun doing it of course!
