      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!

We had a great time at Kids Ropeup this year. Snowbyrd, Bug, Billygoat, Uncle Alpinfox, and Olyclimber were there..and some other people. The highlight of the weekend was probably the almighty spitball. Straws were coupled with berries found in the woods to make semi-lethal weapons. I felt the sting a number of times before there was a weapons ban for the immediate camping area. The children ran around in a pack, re-enacting scenes from Lord of the Flies. We even managed to go climbing both days up in the Icicle. Saturday night while the children were "wilding" all over the campground, the adults cooked up many, many bratwursts and consumed a fair amount of ale. It was excellent to meet some people. On Sunday someone found a Praying Mantis. I'm not sure if this was a sign or not. Praying Mantis, after mating, tear their mates head off. Good times.
