      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!

A good bathroom read?

espirita,

 

While it may seem dated by today's standards, I learned the craft from this old book when it was only a couple of years old. If you can get past the "vintage" photos, it has very good diagrams and demonstration photos for hand and foot placements for jams, locks, crimps, stacking, arm-bars, etc.

 

I think you could get a copy for about $15 from here. The $18 one is the hardcover. You could check some of the other links to get a paperback for a lot less. Mebbe it's gathering dust in a library somewhere...?

 

If you're really interested in getting it, but just can't find one, I'd be willing to loan you mine for a little while.
