      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!

Wes began his love of the outdoors in the rock & ice climbing community of the Western United States in the 70’s. He then graduated on to high altitude climbing in Alaska and the Himalayas.  He was co-leader with Scott Fischer for the 1987 American Everest North Face Expedition. Wes eventually moved to East Africa where he worked for several years as the Director of the NOLS in Kenya.  During this time he and Scott Fischer made the second successful climb of the Breach Icicle on Kilimanjaro.  Along with Scott, he pioneered the Shira Plateau route up Kilimanjaro, the route led by Mountain Madness, and has also developed new walking safaris. Join Wes as he reminisces about past adventures and exciting new ones waiting for you!
