      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!

For what its worth, I think that's a good idea. I can assist with making a db with a web face so that folks could enter their contact info, kid stats, etc.

As I recall, Ulee is very interested in re-enacting scenes from Lord of the Flies with other chillen....last Kids Ropeup was pretty good fun. We'd be interested.

great idea, except for the possibility of exposing my pure unspoiled son to rope dabbery.

This is a way good idea. It'll give everyone something else to argue about on the internet - who's spawn is a better rock monkey.

I take my son climbing. He leads the hard stuff and I clean. Of course, I get to offer sage advise throughout the process and he does't get to give me any shit because that would be cruel to a man of my age.

cool, but listing your 40 year old son in the database might be a bit out of line with the intent here.

Ulee has climbed every conceivable line on this boulder

great boulder for kids.

we should get together and publish the pre-teen perfunctory guide to 11worth bouldering. naturally we'll list all the FA's as belonging to our kids.

Sign us up too please. We're in Vancouver but happy to come south. Or we also have this little crag up here called Squamish you might want to check out. Hopefully we can get some gear swapping going too. I hate buying new gear for kids cuz they grow so fast.

Maybe we can tie this in to the cc.com site cleanly--administrator, what is your advice?

the sendbot is featuring La Sportiva shoes of unknown model. He also has a pair of Cobras waiting for when he outgrows this pair. I bought them up at Cascade Crags when they were getting rid of thier inventory a year or two ago.

It would be SO great to have some other kids to climb with. What the photos don't show is the hours of whining and be bribing, coaxing, me carrying two packs, etc. etc. on the approach. Having other kids around would make it easier. Here's a few more from an AWESOME location to take kids. Nice short approach and serious looking mountains with relatively easy routes on them but still technical enough that you need cool looking gear. I roped my kids up in a few sections mostly cuz they think it's fun but a couple of times for exposure. It's up north of Pemberton. It's a long drive from WA but you can spend a few days easily:

Certainly if we can have a Pirates Only-Pirates all the time! Forum rolleyes.gif we could certainly accomplish this. bigdrink.gif
