      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!

Why everyone was telling me not to go to Indian Creek, when my rack consisted of three cams, some hexes, and a handfull of stoppers.

How in hell people could climb 5.11.

I mean, 5.11!

 

And some dude at the UW rock would traverse the overhang WITH JUST HIS ARMS!

 

I also wondered, (a little later) when 5.14 would get onsited. My friend said never, I said 10 or 15 years.
