      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!

That is interesting. I hadn't heard about it. I found it particularly interesting that Scarpa was looking to go into "mountain fashion footwear" market and BD was not interested in that direction. Go BD! They are a great company and I'm glad they won't be watered down as TNF was and I feel Marmot is becoming. I hope Scarpa continues to offer its excellent plastic boots as well as thier fashionable tennies.
