      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!

Nothing is up with him, though when every other word is a typo and then a quad post you open yourself up for some ridicule. Don't take it personally.

 

I'm not sure who cascade Craig is. [rockband]

Depending on how much you can trust strangers meeting people out and about works well. I used to go to Frenchmans Coulee and walk around bummin' belays, but if you want to learn the fundamentals see if you can tag along on an easy trip somewhere. Maybe someones early season recon trip for later alpine routes?

 

Do you have any overnight backpacking experience? That might be a good place to start.

Sorry Russ. I am sort of a newbie. Only been climbing for about 15 yrs and still learning teaching with the Monties for about 8yr. Still, I stand by the idea that if you have NO experience, how do you know that person you find on the rock or along the trail is experienced and safe? I've had both wonderful and disasterous experiences along these lines.
