      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!

Looking for climbing partner(s)?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Looks like trying to get a climbing partner for Mt. Rainier is a somewhat difficult task.

My name is Rik, live in San Diego. I am looking for a climbing partner, or partners, I can join up with to climb Mt. Rainier. I will be at Mt. Rainier July 3-8, I have never climbed Rainier but would like to, unfortunately, I cannot climb it alone.

I've been climbing since 1994. Have done Mt. Fuji, Shasta, summitted Whitney 15 times, Baldy 60+, and San Jancinto, Gorgoniio, and Wilson countless times. I've climbed in all seasons, know how to use my ice ax, crampons, etc... have done single, and multiple day climbs, know my knots...BUT, have no crevesse experience...I do know how to use my ascenders however, and am quick to perform boot & body belays. My pace is average, I am defintely, not slow, and would be a good addition to any team...nobody has to hold my hand!!!

Anyways let me know if your interested.

...so far not well, but its still early...its only May afterall.

I imagine as July 4th approaches, there'll be someone(s) interested.

Worse case senario is simply sitting in Paradise parking lot with a sign looking for a partner, or partners to climb with. I'm already committed with the airfare & car rental, have everything ready. I've been requesting climbing partners because everyone who originally committed to climb w/ me cancelled, so i'm left "holding the bag" I've sent letters requesting solo permission but no-go.

time will tell.
