      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!

The Yunnan Great Rivers

Project in China

A Slide presentation by Willie Kern of Mountain Travel Sobek


Monday, January 22nd, 8PM - FREE

The North Face, Portland, (503) 727-0200

1202 NW Davis St. (Corner 12th & NW Davis St. - Pearl District)


The North Face and Mountain Travel Sobek are pleased to invite you to a very special slide presentation by world-class kayaker and river guide Willie Kern.


Willie will speak about river trips on the Great Bend of the Yangtze, the Grand Canyon of China, as well as the Upper Mekong river, which Moutain Travel Sobek Expeditions is offering in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and their Yunnan Great Rivers Project, a conservation and development plan for northwest Yunnan. The province of Yunnan, in southwestern China, has some of the best whitewater rafting in the world, and offers fascinating cultural encounters with the Naxi people, descendents of Tibetan traders, and other hill tribe minorities. Some of the highest and most sacred mountains in the world, like Namche Barwa and Kawa Karpo, rise high above

these rivers.


Willie Kern, world-class kayaker, is recognized internationally as the voice of communication and safety on the river. Willie has pioneered many notable descents throughout North and Central America, Europe, and the Himalaya, including first descents down Tibets Yarlung Tsangpo and the Moon Gorge of the Upper Mekong. He loves China and is a passionate advocate for the preservation of its wild rivers and mountain areas.
