      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!

How about Quinn Koenig?

Recommended Posts

What ever happened to him? I saw his dad years ago at Simpson Tacoma Kraft, and he wasn't too sure of Quinn's wereabouts.

Any connection to the ‘Quin Conehead Pre-Memorial Route’ at Darrington? Must be an interesting story behind that. Anyway, don’t know the guy, but hope the news is better than for the other dude you were asking about today.

Quin graduated from UW with engineering degree. Now lives alternately in Belgium and Brazil doing contract work for an Airbus subsidiary.

I once heard the route name was in reference to Quin's prototype design of a cone shaped helmet for deflecting rockfall. The route name apparently reflects the namers opinion on the efficacy of the helmet design.
