      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!

You're wrong. Quite a few people are FROM Tacoma (e.g., I was born there); very few people, however, go TO Tacoma.

Get out while you can.

Hi Aidan,

I know how you feel. It gets even lonelier in Olympia. Its about time all the south sound climbers stand up and be heard!

Once upon a time we had a little gym in Olympia. It was a great place to get hooked up with other climbers. They tore down the building to make Capitol Lake round and the owners were unable to find another location. Thank God we at least got a round lake out of the deal. Well I think its round I haven't been able to get down to the water for three or four years as they have a chainlink fence up around it. I guess this is way off the track but thanks for listening. D

The best problems in that Olympia gym were the ones you made up from the scratches left in the concrete wall. Sorry it got torn down!!

I'm at Fort Lewis. Due to being on a 1 hour recall notice, I tend to climb Spire fairly often. Other good spots in the area are Fossil Rock in Yelm, and I've heard talk of some sandstone in Wilkesson.

I keep looking around the Olympia area too, seems like there is a lot of rock in the ground (i.e. the park next to the old Oly brewery.) Anyone know of anything (even boulders.)
