      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!

Hey you! New to cc.com? Read this!

Recommended Posts

CC.com is a rough and tumble kinda place. There are a bunch of wisecrackers, smartalecks, spraylords, self-aggrandizing ego maniacs, and folks who like to talk tough. There might even be a genuinely mean-spirited person or two that sneak in every once in a while and post something, but they are in the minority and will be dealt with if they are genuinely out of line. Please don't let this discourage you from contributing to this website.

 

Sure there is some harassing that goes on, but it's usually genuinely good natured ribbing between friends. Being mean to new posters is not something that the moderators or most of the posters here will tolerate. So please, ask your questions, post your trip reports, share your photos, and be a contributing part of this website. There is a lot of great information and fun to be had here.

 

You might even hook up with that climbing partner or mentor that you have been hoping for that will help you take your climbing to the next level or get on one of your dream routes.

 

Trip reports are especially encouraged. Even if you think it's a modest climb that no one would be interested in or need beta on, I can tell you that I (and most others on this website) love reading trip reports and seeing pictures of climbing of any sort. It helps our workdays go by and gets us stoked to get out in the mountains. If you had a fun trip, share your story with us! Enthusiasm is infectious.

 

Welcome to CC.com!

doesn't look like you're following your own advice, superstar

 

I've passed my intermediate spray leaders test. Gary certified me! Soon I'll be qualified to call in a rescue.

p.s. Learn to use THE SEARCH FUNCTION of this website. It will help you to avoid asking a question that has been asked several times before - something that has been known to raise the ire of some cc.com veterans.

 

Search function tips:

 

Note that the default is for the search function to only screen posts made in the last week. Consider changing this to search for posts made within the last four years (that's the maximum). You will get a lot more results.

 

adding <+Word1 +Word2 +Word3> to your search term requires that ALL THREE words appear in your search results. If you don't add the <+> before the word, your search results will include all posts that have ANY of the three words in the post. Using the <+> trick is handy for selectively finding posts on a particular route you might be interested in. For example, searching for <+North +Ridge +Stuart> will weed out most of the posts that deal with other routes on Mt. Stuart.

 

Adding quotes around a phrase will give you search results that contain that exact phrase, so <"North Ridge of Stuart"> will give you posts that have that phrase in them, but it won't give you posts that have "NR Stuart" or "North Ridge of Mount Stuart", etc. The quotes can be a powerful tool though.

 

If you can't find the answer you are looking for, ask in the appropriate forum.

I think a certain cc.com whipping boy has that topic under control, but here is a tip especially for you:

 

Try to keep your momma from flashing her glaring white ass at the camera - tends to overexpose the photo.

How do you get photos to display in your posts?

 

Why, that is an excellent question Sir ChucK!

 

As the FAQ states:

In order to add an image to your message or your signature, you must have the image already available on a web server. This can be an image on your own personal web page, for example. To place an image within a message, simply use the following Markup Tag:

 

a>

 

For example, if you have an image called cateye.gif and its available from your own website at http://www.mywebsite.com/pics, then you would put "http://www.mywebsite.com/pics/cateye.gif" between the > I would add that one should be sure that the address that they put between the "[img]" brackets ends in ".jpg", ".bmp", or ".gif" rather than "photo=21605" or something like that. One can get the address of the photo by right-clicking on the photo and clicking on "properties" and cutting and pasting the address into the image brackets.

you've never seen me 'climb'

 

You should harness the power of your spray with a nozzle and use it to levitate your ass off the ground.

If I didn't have Cipro last week in Peru I would have been able to fly myself up Siula Grande
