      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!

Last night in Tacoma at Backpackers Supply "The Bird" gave a "private" slide show. "Private" because it was very poorly attended; one of the greatest Amerian climbers of all time and he only had about 25 people attend!! He recounted his 1981 epic on the East face of Mooses Tooth with Mugs Stump. Then he showed slides of his 2001 climb on the same face. The routes joined up at about the 2/3 height. 1981 was in March, lots of snow and ice. The 2001 was in summer with lots of snow. The rock has been weathered to beyond useful or reliable but they climbed anyway... Bridwell is truely a hard man, knows the risks and stays in control and finishes climbs; very seldom bails. A great climber.

Any body know if he is going to make it up here to Seattle? I would really enjoy seeing him talk.

Fun slide show. Caught it here in Portland at the Mazamas clubroom (ack) sponsored by Climb Max (word). Truely a burley guy. A little tough to follow, but the pics were sweet. Bring him a laser pointer, it was dumb luck that someone in the audience had one. Recomended if he's continuing his tour...
