      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!

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

 

I am a beginning mountaineer... I live in Vancouver, BC and am looking for partners and mentors for alpine climbing, mountaineering and backpacking.

 

Thanks

Join the BCMC or ACC thats what they are for. Posting a note on a bulletin board saying you want a "mentor" just screams out "looking for a free guide."

Now that Dru mentions it...heh Stormwolf, if you'll hump my rack, my pack, my boombox and beer, I'll let you tag along with me and a couple pards this summer on a Ptarmigan Traverse slog, along with a jaunt up Johannesburg and Formidable. No charge; sign waiver.

The ACC is much more of a club, in my opinion, than the American Alpine Club. I think you would be well-served to join them and find an introductory course. I've taken advantage of the benefits of the ACC (huts, small organized trips) much more than my AAC membership, and I live in the states! Unfortunately, their guided trips, courses, and GMC's tend to be relatively expensive. Once you are comfortable guiding yourself, the organized trips are often a good deal and a great way to meet people at your level. Good luck.
