      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!

We can always stay elsewhere on Friday if that's easier. It's just a longer drive for us than you Seattle folks.

I will be going with Simone, that will be 2 of us in total. Just a Saturday overnight will be fine for us. Most likely she will not climb, I just want her to see other kids climbing and just go play. She is only two years old, but definitely has already shown an interest in climbing.

 

Can someone send directions to the camp site, I am not familar with one suggested? Porter if you go on Saturday maybe we can carpool up there? If there is any thing we need to bring let us know.

Ken4ord has a place that leaves 1 more tent place and 6 people. If there is need for more please say so soon. I can ask the park manager for more places. I am going over to Recon this weekend and let my Jr. Monkeys sample the climbs.

I'm so glad you're coming Ken! My two daughters, ages 10 and 5, love little ones! Simone will get lots of attention. And you never know, she might want to put on a harness and give it a go when she sees all the other kids climbing! If you check out the First Ascent site you'll see a pic of a two year old who just climbed! It looks as if she's wearing her bike helmet so you might want to bring Simone's if she has one just in case!

I have taken a friends 2.5 year old climbing once at a gym, so I know that potential is there. I just only want her to try it when she wants, so we will see. She definitely is a little monkey already, she hanging off of tables and climbs the bars on the windows at our old house in Rwanda, so it probably a matter of time going from monkey to climber. Simone likes following the bigs kids around, so there is a chance. See you all there.

I went to the camp and to check out the climbing this weekend. Everything looks good. The camp has a nice pool and a very large grass play area. There are wood rounds to play agility games on and they alos have shuffle bord, mini golf, frizby golf, a tennis court and hourse shoes. The camp has all the gare for these games. I had the kids do a few climbs and they played with other kids around the climbing area. This should be a lot of fun if any one is holding out please join us! PM me if yu want a camp spot with us.

It looks like rain this week in Leavenworth with sun Fri, Sat and Sun. Excellent conditions in my book. If there are any last min. hold outs there is still a place at the camp. If any one wants to come but lacks gear for their kids I have some shoes and harness to share. See you there.

Kens off to foriegn lands again, so it was really awesome to spend some time with him and Simone. some pictures to follow.

Great time! So nice to put more names with faces. And it was great that Pax, Britta and Woody could swing by, too. Thanks to everyone and especially to Peter for going above and beyond with so much the entire weekend! All of us had a blast and are looking forward to next year already.

 

It was definitely a cc.com kind of weekend up there, too. I bumped into PDXers Geoff and Kyle in the Leavenworth Safeway and Jason Martin (AAI guide who's blog I read) who was up top and helped me with an anchor when the kids wanted to try a different climb.

 

Here are some photos from the weekend. It'll probably take a couple posts to fit them all in.
