      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!

There was a rumor that Mad Rock had bought CCH (and Fish products) and was going to start up production in 2011 of Aliens. The prices started dropping. Vegastradguy at RC.com just came back from the outdoor retailer show and Mad Rock told him that was not true. At least that's one thing in the cog. Another might be that Aliens really rock on Yosemite big wall aid, and spring was a bunch of dudes running around trying to buy the pieces to fill out recommended racks for valley wall routes, as currently its too hot to climb in the valley, and folks are up in the high country doing free routes, that demand has softened. Plus a bunch of folks saw the pricing and started selling.....
