      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!

Guidebook ideas

Recommended Posts

One frustration I have with the various non-Beckey guides is how varied the content is. Typically they include hike-ups and 5.11 routes and glacier travel, all mixed together. The sort of person who's looking for a route like Mt. Ruth is probably not going to want to page through route descriptions of Eve Dearborn Memorial Route, and vice versa.

So, What seems like it would be quite useful, at least to someone like me, would be a set of guides arranged by type of climb, rather than 'my favorite' or 'classics.' For instance, a guidebook that includes interesting rock routes -- W. Ridge Forbidden / NE RidgeTriumph / Mt Goode NE Buttress, etc.

Then, a guidebook of interesting glacier/ice routes: Adams Glacier / N Ridge Baker / Liberty Ridge.

Call it the "Northwest Classic" series -- Northwest Classic Rock Routes / Northwest Classic Glacier Routes / Northwest Classic Scrambles / Northwest Classic Choss Slogs...
