      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!

partner wanted

Recommended Posts

Finding myself without a partner too often so here goes:


I've got one season of experience. About 25 routes in the cascades, one or two at smith and 3 in Yosemite, I usually will lead trad to 5.9, WI/AI 3. I did the basic mounties gig last year to get over the experience catch 22. I'd like to do :

summer rock such as W ridge or S face Prusik, stuart north ridge, forbidden W ridge, dragontail serpentine, etc.


Other alpine such as redoubt, baker N ridge, shuksan N face or Nooksack glacier, slesse etc.


I really want to do a trip or 3 to the bugaboos (never been).


I may or may not have a car this summer but if it comes down to it I can probably acquire one.

I have a tendancy to push for the summit sometimes but generally like to be safe.

I dont like loud music on car rides or gutter talk or drugs (just sayin if you do thats cool but we wont mesh.)


lastly, I like to move fast on things like uphill approaches. I'd say I'm in good shape (stuart cascadian car to summit in 3.5 hours). I'm not saying you gotta be superman, but I'm tired of climbing with people who arent in good enough shape for the objective at hand. Just know your limits.


If interested email
