      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!

hot rope deal -NOW!

Recommended Posts

Great thread.

 

Anybody see any screaming deals on 80meter ropes? 70m ropes?

 

---------

The only time me or any of my buds use 10mm plus ropes is in Yosemite.

 

Why are the skinny ropes often way more expensive when they are made off the same spool of thread at the same factory? I've seen 10.5 fatties for 60 bucks.

Perhaps you should pose this question to our resident retail expert, JohnDavidJR? As THE foremost expert in this field, he knows more about retail values than any other poster here, ever. I bet MalWart makes a functionally similar model you can find in the hardware dept, for about $20.

Nice Mammut ropes have been showing up on SteepAndCheap in the past couple of days at 45-50% off.

Add it to your cart and the price drops to 87.93. Seems to be unannounced (at the moment at least) 20% off 1 item in the outlet, plus free shipping if you're a member. Seems like a pretty sweet deal.

Unannounced?!?

 

There's a big banner at the top of their home page and they sent out email this morning with it in the subject line.

 

Do you need it tattooed on your forehead?
