      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!

Yes, they have found hime...

Dallas was a great man of God, and an awesome climber! He will be missed. I only wish I had been able to climb with him more!

 

here is a bit about Dallas some of you may not know...

It would honor him if you took the time to read it, and consider what is said with an open heart!

 

God bless you Dallas.

Wow, as a fellow Brother in Christ and climber I can say that I am truly inspired by Dallas' mission.

Yes, Dallas's body was found and recovered Thursday. There are plans being made for a memorial service. There is also plans being laid for a climbers event. It will probably be at Mt Erie which he was fond of as we all know, time and date still to be determined. I do not know yet if the service is family only or if it is a public invited thing. I am sure it can be posted up when that call is made.

Bumping this up a bit to remind folks that the memorial is coming up this week.
Heinrich,

Perhaps a posting of this info in the Events Forum would be appropriate.

 

Never had the honor of meeting Dallas, but he was known to me through his fame in the mountains and his helping hand to others, as described by the posts in this thread. R.I.P. Dallas.

I met him once on a carpool drive up to the Cliff Hanger in Coquitlam, a very ambitious dude - god bless. :tup:

Thanks to all who attended the memorial service yesterday, I know I came away with a much better appreciation for the force of nature that was known as Dallas Kloke.

 

My personal favorite Dallas quote related at the service: A climbing partner once asked him what his secret to climbing longevity (50 yrs!) was....... "You either got it, or you don't."

 

Here's to you Dallas, I hope I got it! :brew:

It was a nice event yesterday. Moving, too. I don't do stuff like that but I teared up.

 

A quote from someone I spoke with afterward: "Dallas was a chief of our tribe."
