      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!

Phil Patz: a dear friend lost

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,


With great sadness, I inform you that our dear friend Phil Patz passed away in a scuba diving accident on May, 25th 2009. This leaves a deep hole in our hearts as we have shared so much with Phil. We are still in denial of the news, because of Phil's constant safety consideration and his larger than life spirit. He was always laughing even in the face of danger.




Many people in climbing community knew him, so I am passing the word around in case you have not heard.


The funeral is on Tuesday July 7th, 2009 from 5 - 7 pm at

Salata - Gurnee Funeral Home

4190 Old Grand Ave, Gurnee, IL - (847) 244-1155

There is a service to follow at 7pm.


Thank You

Dmitriy Litvak
