      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!

Where in Scotland will you be? Because if you're in the South of Scotland, you might want to make the 3-hr or so trip down to the Peak District in England. Stanage. Hard grit. You know. Even lots of easy and moderate, well-protected yet somehow still terrifying grit.

or Ferry cross the Mersey from Liverpool to Wales by driving down the M1 from Scotland and go climbing in Snowdonia, which has great rock climbing. Actually, you don't have to take a ferry across the Mersey river anymore, the highway passes under the river in a tunnel and you pop out the other side in Wales.
