      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!

Sport climbing areas tend to be more crowded, for sure. But the recognized moderate classics - those highlighted in multiple guidebooks or maybe the climb of the day on cc.com - will be crowded the same way even if they are totally trad. Try taking your novice friends up the Beckey Route (Liberty Bell) or Outer Space (Leavenworth) and you may encounter the pushy soloist or just a dozen other parties ready to climb right over you.
