      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!

Book Cover Photo Contest

Recommended Posts

As some of you know, I've written a rather extensive book on climbing training, nutrition, injury, equipment, and special techniques.

 

Well the time has come to self-publish, and I need a cover!

 

So to promote the book and the awesome climbers and photographers on this site, I've decided to do this:

 

1st Place: The Cover Photo

2nd place: Back Cover

 

If there are multiple excellent photos, I may use several for the back cover, or throughout the book.

 

Winners receive a first run edition of the book.

 

Rules:

1.Post a photo on this thread with a caption as to who,what,where and the photographer: contest ends Jan 12th 2008

2.Winning photos will be used at my sole discretion as I see fit in the book which will be for public resale.

3.All photos posted must be yours (i.e. don't post someone else's photo) and subjects in the photos must agree to be published (i.e. your bro may not want to be on the cover). This means the photo came from YOUR CAMERA and the climber in the photo must be able to be contacted by me.

4.Winners will receive an advance copy of the book.

5.Winners will be contacted before publication so I can get your written agreement as well as the subject in the photo's written agreement

6.All photos will remain the photographer's intellectual/copyrighted/personal property

7.To win, post an action shot.

8.If you don't want your photo published, don't enter.

9.If you want your photo to remain anonymous, that's fine. But I still need your written permission. I promise not to share your identity.

10.Winners have until Feb 12 to withdraw if they don't want to be in the book because I can't "unpublish" it.

11.I can change my mind at any time for what photos I actually use, but you'll still get the book.

12.Only two winners are guaranteed, but all winners receive a book if more than two winners happen.

13.I decide the winner.

 

Photos should be in all disciplines of climbing, not just ice climbing! Bouldering, sport climbing, aid climbing, etc are highly encouraged in addition to your ice climbing, alpine, and trad shots.

I think that one that is eating with a yellow helmet on is Darin and the one wearing shorts-over-polypro and with all the gear, leading us fools, is Mike.

No actual climbing in the pic, but this is one of my favorites: Stuart and Colchuck as seen from Dragontail:

I couldn't find the photo of Mike getting a hummer from the wooden marmot at all :cry:

 

So I Googled "Mike Layton Marmot BJ" and found this!

I'm pretty sure that for Mike's alpine nutrition tips this photo is important. Not sure exactly how?

Oh wait, I meant 'mano a mano', rather than 'monkey against monkey'.

 

Knowing your inclinations for Ivan I think you meant 'mouth to mouth"

Boca a boca. Ello es esperma banco de Ivan.

 

TTK: No, mano a mano no es también tan hombre a hombre. ¿Comprendes? Tu no entiendes español muy bien y tu eres bobo grande. Una vez mas, tu tienes insertar su pie en su boca.
