      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!

My Book is FINALLY Published, Yay!

Recommended Posts

I had the opportunity to look this book over recently, and it is a pretty amazing piece of work. It is very useful for rehabing injuries, or strenthening specific muscles for climbing, along with useful tricks of the trade.

One thing you should add in the next edition Layton, is the management of the "Bivy Kit", and keeping sleeping pills seperated from pain killers....LOL

Looks pretty good. Probably have to snag a copy so I can get up Chair Peak without biv gear. But seriously, why did you include info on bolting? Some kind of sales-boost strategy?

I included info on bolting because there is not a book on it and people should know how to do it correctly. I bet you would approve actually.

What kind of self-publish deal is it Mike? like p.o.d. or did you have to get a huge load printed at once and stored in your spare bedroom until they sell?

How many do you have to sell to break even?

Looking over the finished product, I am awed, Mike. Absolutely smashing. Thanks so much for inviting me to contribute to it, I'm honored to have had a small part in it. :tup::rocken:

Just send me a copy and I'll offer an honest opinion. If my review is favorable, you can use my name for promotional purposes.

Mine just arrived.

I read the "Praise" section by a bunch of really famous climbers and got all fired up.

I went out and ran 12 miles with big hills and pulled a hamstring.

F.... you Mike! This is your fault!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just kidding. No injuries yet.

and sorry there are a few typos in the book - not having an editor (major $$) except for the paper clip guy.

I had my wife review the exercises in your book last night.

She has been a physical therapist for 31 years.

 

She gives you an excellent review!

 

Cheers.
