      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!

Don't listen to these poosies, go and get some. Helicopters can reach the top of that thing anyway, so just bring a T-shirt some shorts and a cellphone and live it up. Cheers :brew:

Although it is probably not REALLY necessary, take a helmet for the upper chutes. I almost died there once.

No way, man. Too much weight. Pebbles will whiz past your cranium like bullets, but what are the odds they'll actually hit you? :rolleyes:

Norman, you've clearly not been up there in late season. The hourglass can be a pinball alley without snow. To save weight, you can try an inflatable helmet.

 

BTW, North Brother in a couple of weeks, I think.
