      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!

Beginning Alpine

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm just starting to break into alpine climbing and hoping to find more people who might not mind dragging me along and mentoring me a bit.

I'm 21, in the Seattle area, and in pretty decent shape. I have not led trad yet, though I have followed a moderate amount of times and can lead sport up to 10a. I have extensive backpacking experience, a fair amount of it being off trail. And I have taken a glacier travel/crevasse rescue course though I haven't had much of a chance to practice these skills yet.

I know Fall isn't the best time of year to get started, but I figured I'd throw it out there.

I'm heading out for some mtn/alpine sun/mon/tues and lookin for partners. mk_adventure@yahoo.com
