      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!

God, I hope they paid a handsome fine for that "rescue".


I carry an ACR PLB -- in my airplane, not in my backpack.

I saw an AK hiker w/ one (PLB). Very robust, 4 yr batterie life, 24 hr transmition time. His was made in Great Britain.

A one-time investment vs the $100/ yr subscrition for SPOT.
