      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!

probably a run of 100

cost will be determined after printing costs are determined

distribution= pick up or buy pays shipping

probably 16X20, since that is what people seem interested in

It might look good as a 18x24, too, which is another standard size....

The labeling is looking really good. But I think Darin is correct about the following, which hasn't been fixed:

 

Hannegan Peak is mislabeled. Teh actual Hannegan Peak is straight right of Ruth. What you have marked is a subsummit of Sefrit

Larger would be more preferable - for me - since this is a discussion to determine interest... that's my 2 cents :wazup:

Looks great, put me down for at least one.

 

In regards to size I think 18x24 would be preferable to 16x20 although where I'm going to put it on my wall I could really fit something up to 36" wide.

....something up to 36" wide.

 

The resolution of the image will look good at 18x24 (based on a clipping of the poster I got printed as an 8x10 today, looks good!), but probably shouldn't push it to 36" unless I can get ahold of a higher-resolution image....

FUNDRAISER FOR A GREAT CAUSE:

Okay, here's the deal on the poster. CC.com has decided to take advantage of this opportunity to raise some money for the Washington Climber's Coalition to buy the Lower Town Wall at Index, which has been threatened with closure. It'd be such a shame for some of the best climbing in WA (Godzilla, City Park, Thin Fingers,.....) to be quarried in the future, and who better to forever preserve the wall than us climbers! Selling this poster is a good way to support the cause and show we care about protecting the climbing areas in our state. Every little bit helps.

 

For details on the plight of the Lower Town Wall, see the WCC website:

http://www.washingtonclimbers.org/Current/Town.htm

 

HOW TO PAY FOR THE POSTER:

We are in the process of setting up a PayPal account where people can prepay for the poster. The price will be by donation, with proceeds going to WCC. Only a small cut of the proceeds will be taken to cover the creation of the poster, so a bulk of the proceeds will go to WCC, which I hope will encourage climbers to donate whatever they please to this fundraiser. Every little bit helps.

 

HOW TO GET YOUR POSTER:

Jim Nelson at Pro Mountain Sports in Seattle has offered his shop to be the pick-up place for people in the Seattle-based area. For those who do not live near Seattle, we will offer shipping for an additional cost. It would be quite the job to ship to everyone, so hopefully those who live in Seattle will take advantage of the free pick up at his shop.

 

STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS:

Porter will probably post more details soon, but start getting the word out of this fundraiser if you can. Thanks.

 

-Steph

Thanks everyone for the interest! Steph and I will have a page for you to order, probably as early as next week. Keep on checking this thread, as we'll link to that page when its ready. There will also be an advert to the left.

 

This will be a limited run, so if you know anyone who might want one be sure to let them know!

We are still looking for printing services for this. If anyone knows an offset printer that might be willing to cut us a deal (this is an Index LTW charity fund raiser), let me know via PM. If we can do offset, what yall will order will be a higher quality product (like you might want to frame it). Otherwise we may go with a cheaper printing option to keep the cost down. I'd rather do offset!

 

thanks!

I'd like 2 or 3 depending on the quality. The nicer they are, the more I'll buy (and the more you should charge) for the fundraiser.

 

Thanks for putting this together.

Have you considered offering these to the NCNP to sell in their visitor centers? They may want to sell them, which would entail making a much larger run at the printer.
