      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!

"Freedom of the Hills" by The Mountaineers Press. Most any climbing store has it, also REI and Borders, Barns & Noble. The Bible of climbing.

"Freedom of the Hills" is the bible of this sport. Period.

Don't use hyperbole in the newbie forum. If that wasn't hyperbole... :rolleyes:


No, it's not the bible. But it is likely the best place to start. Kinda like the Pentateuch or something. It is certainly the most comprehensive collection of general information on pretty much all aspects of mountaineering, but it will not be all you ever need. Depending on what subject you're interested in, there are more detailed and specific books out there.
