      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!

RopeUp 2010

Recommended Posts

I regret to announce that we will not be able to put on RopeUp this year. RopeUp will return next year. With cc.com turning 10 next month we really wanted to organize this event, but the nature of the event has changed since it's inception, and because of that we can't just throw together an event. Unfortunately collectively we were not able to come up with enough energy to do what is required to put on a successful event. Success would be measured by our ability to be allowed to put the event on the next year without objections. We as a site are in the public eye and our actions can have broad effects on all climbers, so just throwing together event that draws the ire of Thousand Trails camphosts or the Forest Service would be incredibly irresponsible of us. We are really sorry about this but promise that it will return next year.

 

We would like to do another SausageFest this Winter and will likely work with a local shop to host a slideshow. I don't want people to think that because RopeUp isn't happening that things are falling apart here, we've got some cool irons in the fire.

Sorry folks, I just don't have the time to organize it this year. We believe that if we do it, we need to do it right, and make everyone happy (including the camphosts!). That takes a bit of care and planning (more than you'd think!). Unfortunately we just don't have the time this year to make it happen.

 

I do plan on making it happen in 2011. It has been a fun event, and I've really enjoyed putting it on. It will be back.

it's alright, i have faith in the ability of folks on this site to get drunk and hang out w/ other climbers on their own :)

 

the demise of tuff love in the past few years has been a bummer though...

Well I have no doubt you guys can do it on your own! We just like putting on something every year to celebrate another year of climbing in the northwest.
