      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!

Lex Maxwell obituary

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I help John Harlin with the In Memoriam section of the AAJ, and I'm looking for someone to write an obituary of Lex Maxwell. Anyone who'd like to volunteer or has suggestions is welcome to email me @ camburns@rof.net.

Thanks, Cam Burns

If you are referring to the same Lex Maxwell that was one of the "Founding Fathers" of Central Washington Mountain Rescue, and Mountain Rescue in the PNW in general, I could probably put you in touch with one of the few surviving members who would have been in the original unit with him over 50 years ago.


You also might try getting a hold of Lowell Skoog, since he talked with Lex on the phone a few years back. Lowell is fraught with PNW mountain lore.
