      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!

Anyone from the Seattle area (or West Seattle) want to carpool over? I need to get back right after 9pm, so I would be leaving as soon as the thing is over.

Hey Jake:

I'd share a ride with you but I live in NE Seattle so I'd meet you 3/4 of the way there and I'm not going to be in a hurry to come home 'cause my wife is at her sister's house and all I have to look forward to at home is an ornery cat.
