      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!

Eggcellent. Kennedy was the best editor at Climbing IMHO.

Funny there in no mention of what if anything they intend to do with existing subscriptions. This must be the number one FAQ.

 

If they can't honor them, I wish they would just come out and say so. If they will, why wouldn't they want people to know this?

they've already mentioned before that they plan to honor all subscriptions. Don't worry.

No question about MK's sterling credentials as both climber and editor.

 

However, during the brief period that I frequently read Climbing Magazine, (at least a dozen years ago), I remember thinking that perhaps too many stories were focused on a rather narrow roster of climbers. Don't know that was correct.

 

More problematic was a distracting emphasis on editorial and graphical glitz, perhaps to appeal to a particular "demographic" of which I am/was no longer a member.

 

Alpinist seemed like it was aimed at a slightly higher level, but I guess advertisers weren't quite convinced.

 

Great timing for re-launch!!!

I just got Alpinist 26 out of the mailbox. Format looks indistinguishable from the previous issues.
