      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!

new guy on the rock

hello all. my name is Phil. i am new to the climbing fun, no gear yet but i do some bouldering at sprinker. i recently hiked to the saddle of eagle peak on mt.rainier. but just could not find my way to the top of the rock or crag. (did i use that correctly), which was my goal. now i need to learn to climb. is that even climbable has anyone done that? iv always had the urge,its time to take action. a climbing partner seems to be a key element. on that note i joined this forum in hopes of finding climbing friends. i been to the local gym and plan on doing the basic crash course to get started. anyone have any suggestions on a good place to do this? i have a good idea but i wanted some other opinions. any other newbies want to get together ans start climbing. i work m-f off weekends. and I'm not afraid to miss work for time in the mountains. :tup:

Hey pjp, yes Eagle is a good first one to climb but is a little confusing up top. I also climb at Spire Rock a bit, send me a message if you want to get together for a climb.

The best route to the top looks alot harder than it really is, and the easier looking ways are nasty :)
