      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!

Christine is the owner of Seattle-based Mountain Madness and was a featured speaker at Mountainfilm 2001 and 2006.

Scroll down on this link previously posted, toward the end of the timeline. Nothing real yet. Seems the word is starting to get out in China. "Field teams," including a CNN crew, are making some progress. But finding further info, and C&C, will take time. Blessings to all involved in the search.

Just thought I'd post a link update. Seems like theyve narrowed the search down to one mountain. Gotta take everything you read with a grain of salt of coarse. The bottom link (as posted above aready) is probly the best source for info at this point. Lets hope for the best.

This sucks. I am very sad for her family and friends. I worked PT for her for almost a year. Good company, but she was the one that made it so great.
