      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 48 states are boring. I want to read about the team that launched an expedition to Kingman Reef and other cool American Territories

 

Kingman Reef

 

The atoll is closed to the public but I can't see that stopping a true record breaker.

 

 

Be it known to all people: That on the tenth of May, A.D. 1922, the undersigned agent of the Island of Palmyra Copra Co., Ltd., landed from the motorship Palmyra doth, on this tenth day of May, A.D. 1922, take formal possession of this island, called Kingman Reef, situated in longitude 162 degrees 18' west and 6 degrees 23' north, on behalf of the United States of America and claim the same for said company.

Here's another high point to go get.

Apparently the US claims it, but so do the Colombians, Nicaraguans, and Jamaicans. You might have to battle em to summit.

 

The US claims it due to the Guano Islands act, so there's some top notch shit there. The island was popular with pirates too.
