      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!

Ivan, thanks for your patience and help. I'm casting the blame for my slowness on the heavy boots. Yeah, that's it, not my lack of fitness!

nice work guys. looks like ivan came up with a new plan after all -- i.e., climbing hood on a sunny day seems so much more logical to me somehow...

Whats going on with the rope in this picture?

bill savored his blessings and stayed put where he was on the summit ridge - i used the toys'r'us rope to have him belay me through that one vaguely sketchy part, then walked over to the summit - no need for the rope on the way back :)

Yeah, was hard not to hurl watching you walk the walk. Found it easier to not watch the return trip, too busy looking for my testicles.

I like the photo of the fella standing on the Hot Rocks. It is amazing how in a photo It looks like the Old Chute is not very steep at all. Having Been Up the old chute and Across the summit ridge last spring, I know it is Pretty steep, and the ridge is "Bracing". Nice photos, Thanks Ivan.

i dreamt in winter white

while youth went astray

quiet soft crunch of crampons

a hill without end

 

blood red crescent moon

our friends as quick die away

life so short like rain

 

summit before noon

bad icy beer breakfast there

down we rage in glee
