      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!

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

Please put a helmet on that little cutie. It'd be a shame to see a cracked skull. Head injuries are one of the biggest problems for kids under 12.

shall I not let him climb trees, run through fields and woods, play on the monkey bars, do cartwheels, or take a bath without a helmet?

 

the rocks are 6 feet tall the ground is dirt.

 

thanks for your concern.

not you dummy. your comment was spot on.

 

hopefully chelle was also joking with much sarcasm.

 

otherwise I would suggest homelessness, abusive parents and/or hunger are one of the biggest problems for kids under 12.

I think slacker parents who make their kids march all over Tiger Mtn searching for boulders in the rain are a bigger threat. Just ask any soaked tired hungry kid out there.

I think kids under 12 are the leading cause of a shortened life expectancy for their poor parents. I don't know how people do it.

...deleterious to one's sanity, too.

 

A framed needlepoint cloth on my parents' wall reads:

 

Insanity is inherited, you get it from your kids.

I think he meant the east side of the mountains, not Lake Washington.
