      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!

Your old gear = Adventures for at-risk youth!

Recommended Posts

I am the area director for a non-profit in the Pacific NW (Spokane, Seattle, and Portland) that takes at-risk kids into the wilderness on rafting, climbing, and backpacking/mountaineering trips. This year we took out almost 1800 kids, for a total of 2800 user days! Because these kids don't have much to call their own, we provide all the gear for them to go on the trips, even socks. Most of our gear is donated and most is used or returned gear, but that doesn't matter to us-it is much better than what the kids show up in. We want them to be outfitted well so they can better enjoy the trips that we go on. You can send us anything! It doesn't matter that the tread on the boots isn't brand new, or that the tent needs a patch. It all helps us provide programming for the youth.


So if you have gear that you need to get rid of because your wife told you the only way you are getting new gear is to get rid of some of the old, we would love you put it to good use. Feel free to shoot me a message (ethan_peak7_org) if you have questions, or check out our website: www.peak7.org.

I have a crate full of gear for you. THis includes crampons, nuts, cams, and 'biners. I'd like to donate it in memory of an Index climber, in support of the Index Fund 2010 campaign (yes, we are near our fundraising goal but not quite there yet). Please send a private message.
