      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!

CC.com Turns 8

Recommended Posts

8 years ago today Tim and I started cc.com. With the addition of Porter the 3 of us have been working really hard to try and operate a useful resource that will always be here for the climbing community. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this site over the years. Some of the TR's that have been posted here, especially recently, have been really remarkable and honestly quite flattering that people are taking the time to share it on here. I'd also like to thank the moderators who do a rather thankless job but one that is critical.

 

Some people have been asked how to donate to cc.com, and now we have a slightly easier way. One of the features in our upgrade is a subscription feature that is tied to PayPal. Here is the link . Donations help fund the development of the website, but this site and all it's features will always be free and done without cramming a bunch of ads down your throat. There is one donation level as we feel any amount is important. For those who donate more then $75 we will send you a cc.com T-shirt. In a few weeks donors will have a little icon next to their names to recognize them. But honestly the best way to support this site is posting some killer TRs and useful content and help spreading a good vibe about cc.com.

 

As always if people have suggestions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Prior to looking at CC I new little to nothing about online forums much less posting on online forums. I saw a flier at a rock climbing gym and got curious about this online forum thing. That was a couple months shy of 8 years ago.

 

I've gotten a lot out of this site. :tup:

I was a lurker until 2004. The worst mistake I ever make was signing up to this joint. Only $75 for a t-shirt? Sounds good to me! :brew:

Me, too. I fiddled around a little bit with rec.climbing before cc.com came online. I got an invitation to join cc.com in my inbox in December of 2000, I'm pretty sure it came from Alex (I'd just met him on Rainier 6 months earlier during the Crank Rainier 2000 project) and the rest is history.

Is this where the oldies post? Well thanks to you three for spinning the plates, it has been a fun ride.

I believe I can blame Alasdair for the intro to cc. just after I moved up here

:cheers:, To another eight!

I first heard about cc.com when Adrian B. linked to it in an ice conditions report. WTF, what a mistake that was :crosseye:

1) I moved to the PNW one year ago and knew no one, and have been reading cc.com for 11 of those months. It has been an invaluable resource in helping me figure out how to get into the scene. A huge thank you to the founders.

 

2) Wayne- thanks for the awesome and inspirational slideshow at the Portland Ice Festival last weekend. I was truly impressed at the quality of the whole event, which I think was due both to the quality of the climbers involved, and the quality of this resource in bringing us all together.

 

Many thanks from a newbie. I'm looking forward to earning my turns and giving back as experience allows.

There is nothing like cc.com. Tie my rope to a cc.commer any day, they're gonna have balls, respect for history and enthusiasm for the "worst" kind of terrain. Long live cc.com and the Cascade climbers she both molds and represents! Raising a big stein in Hansel-und-Gretel land...
