      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!

rock climbing with 3 people?

Recommended Posts

A team of three can climb just as efficiently as a team of two. And if you have to carry two ropes anyways (for the descent), it makes just as much sense to climb with three. There are all sorts of tricks that can address leading, rope management, and technique to make it efficient.

I like three people for the sport crag.

More time for me to rest my weak arms between redpoint attempts.

With two, I don't force myself to take the rest I need to clip the chains.
