      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!

Re: Lene Gammelgaard's book...I've read it and her perspective is closer to Anatoli's. Not a great piece of climbing literature, but not bad either. Reading multiple books on that season is a lesson in perspective and that everyone creates their own "truth" to make sense of life's events.

"Savage Aren"a, by Joe Tasker

 

Not a climb book, but "Running the Amazon", the account of the first complete descent of the Amazon River, is one of the top all time adventure / endurance books I've ever read.
