      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!

Postcards from the edge: Las Vegas

Recommended Posts


Hiking down the wash, Bomber and me run into two fellows deep in conversation, the faithful guidebook in hand....


Guy: "hey, is this Olive Oil?"

Me: "no, it's on the other side of that mountain"

Guy: "oh...(looks at guidebook)...are you sure?"

Me: "yes, don't worry thou, the route in front of you, Cat in the Hat is very nice."

Guy: "where?"

Me : "you see all those people up there? well...(route description deleted)...that's Cat in the Hat."

Guy: "how hard is it?"

Me: "5.6"

Guy: "hmmm, I think we want to do Olive Oil"


(thoughtful pause, sounds of water, birds chirping)


Guy: "so...where are we?"


Authors note:

This was a lot like my first trip to red rocks, way too hot, getting lost and losing gear to Cat in the Hat...all cherished memories.
