      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!

Wanted: Mountaineering Boots & 4 season tent

Recommended Posts

A quick thanks to the CC's for the boots I have purchased. These will be invaluable for the adventures we'll have this summer on Baker and Rainier and beyond. Here is what is left as far as needs for our 12 man crew of boys:

 

Mountaineering Boots:

size 8

size 9.5,

size 11.5,

 

Also need:

4 season tent

L harness

XL Harness

 

Just so you don't have to read any of the posts below, I'm not necessarily looking for anything new or even free, just trying to control costs and give these boys a great experience. For the boots, looking for anything under $75 since it will be about $78 to rent per boy. Thanks to those who have helped so far. It is much appreciated.

How much are you willing to spend? I have a pair of used La Sportiva Trango Extremes I may be willing to let go of.

Anything under $75. Renting will cost each boy $78 (because we need them at 3 separate times), which is still a fine option, but I am hoping to save some of these families $. And if they can keep the boots instead of renting, it opens the door for more mountaineering possibilities.

Not sure where you are located, but Second Ascent in Ballard has good deals on used boots.

Hey Nate,

Hey I have a pair of size 12 koflach arctis expres I can let go for $75.

 

The Arctis Expres will definitely work, they are a little bit heavier duty than the Degre's. They are in good condition, used on one longish expedition, but that's it.

 

Liners and shells are in great shape, although a number of scratches on the shells.
