      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!

I can't believe how much stuff we have to raffle off. We might not even have time for slides. The drink special is in full effect.

Actually, I think it's up to 5 who've lead it, right?

 

Todd Skinner

Hugh Herr

Alan Watts (he didn't send, but he still lead it)

Mikey (edited for brain fart)

Ben G.

 

I've never attempted to Lead City park; nor have ever claimed to. Props to all who could endure the pain. And props to Drew Ruana who will outclimb us all.

Hey folks seriously make sure you come on Sunday, please tell all your climbing friends, send out emails, facebook it, tweet it, spray paint it on police cars, WHATEVER! We have put a lot of work into this and it's going to be a really great event. Great food, a f'ing AMAZING beer "special", TONS of stuff to raffle off (can someone say Camalots?), some pretty awesome slide presenters like your American Alpine Club President. You will not miss this!

 

We still have some space available if you want to show your slides. We want to stay true to our event and make sure that everyone who wants to show has the opportunity. Send me a PM if you are interested.

I'm personally donating a few of the North Cascade National Park poster to the raffle. They also may be available for sale at the event. All proceeds of the sale of them goes to the WCC Index Fund as well.

Second Ascent not only sponsors CC.com for you on a regular basis, they are throwing down for this event. They are kicking in a Gregory pack, a mammut rope, and limited edition Petzl Meteor helmet...all for the raffle for the WCC Index Fund.

 

Come to Sausage Fest and get a raffle ticket or 10! Think of it as your personal homage to Princely Ambitions, Godzilla, Sloe Children, or Thin Fingers.

also Tod from Edgeworks Climbing Gym in Tacoma will be at the Sausagefest, so you can buy a poster or two from him at the Sausagefest if you want one! This is yet ANOTHER Index fund raiser. Lets buy that dang wall already! Limited edition of 200, so better get yours before they are gone.

 

I will also be personally donating 5 of the posters to the raffle.

John Scurlock is going to show pictures. Rumor is that there will only be two pictures, but I'm sure they will be good.
