      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   11/10/22

      Huge thank you to Bellingham based The American Alpine Institute for being our sole sponsor, taking care of our hosting costs,  which is our biggest cost.  @Jason_Martin  of AAI reached out to me, and really wanted to support the forums.  They have supported us in the past,  and now stepped up to support us again.  They will be our sole sponsor for 6 months.   Big time, and they are a local climbing related company to boot!

well, "good" being a relative term...

 

we have members now, and a good base of regulars. last night there were about 30 climbers here at one point. a far cry from Vertical World where we'd have as many as 300 in the gym over a night.

 

It's been over 2 years since I've gotten a paycheck (thank god for my loving and patient wife).

 

I'm guessing another year will pass befor we have a profitable year, and probly another 10-15 years before we recieve any return on our investment. I think of the gym as more of a community service, just trying to hang in there and keep the lights on. Southern Oregon is slowly developing some sort of climbing community...%95 noobs.

 

If you're looking for a get rich quick scheme, cross Climbing Gym off the list. howver I am as strong as ever and have fun every day. roll into work at noon and pretty much play and chat with climbers. it's my dream job, my favorite part is coaching a climbing team of 11 kids and watching their climbing skills develop....one I'm proud to say is one of the best in the state for his age group.
