      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!

Climbers Guide to the Olympic Mountains

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

It's done!!! The manuscript for the 4th edition is in the Mountaineers hands. We expect that it will hit the streets in early 2006. Major changes - Huge revision of Bailey range (including GPS positions), Alpine Rock section, Crags and Sport Routes section, many new and updated routes throughout the range. Support Olympic Mountain Rescue and purchase a copy when they arrive at your local store.

It'll be interesting to see the "huge revision" of the Bailey range....too much of what is in the guide on the Bailey is outdated and/or inaccurate. I'd never recommend the current guide (1st-3rd ed.) to anyone doing the Bailey.

In response to PETMAC - There is no specific ice climbing section. We have updated the Winter Climbing part. There are some semi-technical climbs such as Winter Direct on Washington that are new. We had little input from you guys and ran out of time and energy to create an Ice Climbing section from scratch. The unit has a web site with a section specifically set up for input about guide book related things - new routes, problems with route descriptions, updates, variations and etc. The site is olympicmountainrescue.org. It is our goal to have this site be your updated reference between editions. So if you have information - share it with us. If we have sufficient input and global warming doesn't get too bad, maybe there will be an ice climbing part in the next edition.
