      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!

The Mountaineering Review

Recommended Posts

Hello. I've seen numerous references to CascadeClimbers.com over the years, and finally got around to checking it out. It's a great website with a hyper-active forum. Perhaps the combination of weather and coffee in the PNW is conducive to hyper-active posting. :/ I look forward to aggravating my wife by browsing this forum regularly.

 

Anyway, after being relieved of employment and finding myself home with two small children, I started a blog called The Mountaineering Review to keep my brain from turning to mush. Have a look!

Welcome, Sam. After reading your blog about the Mallory/Irvine mystery, I gotta ask: Are you sure you're not one of the Bard brothers?!? If Alan wasn't dead this many years, I'd swear he could have written it. Maybe you're channeling? At any rate, it was fun!

Thanks, montypiton! I'm pretty sure I'm not one of the Bard brothers, but I do recall when Alan Bard was killed guiding the Owen-Spaulding route on the Grand Teton. I've done that route twice. The first (normally) roped pitch involves a long, exposed traverse. A fall there could entail a long pendulum. Perhaps that is what happened.

 

Anyway, now I'm curious: can you recommend something Alan Bard wrote?
