      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!

- Stay healthy and climb with friends.

 

- Crag new route FAs. Two may be too hard for this year, but other projects should go down.

 

Do at least one multipitch rock FA in the mountains.

 

Get more people stoked to climb at a crag I've been developing.

 

Redpoint Bust the Rhythm and find a few other 12 projects.

 

Get the kids on real rock more this summer, and share that with friends.

 

One goal has already been achieved this year: boulder my first V6 indoors.

 

Many family, friends and work tick list items, but I won't list them here...

Another important one: motivate past, present, and future team members to keep the NWMJ going!

 

This one is hard because it depends on many people stepping up and pulling the sleigh. You know who you are...

Nice one, Rad. The NWMJ has been a major "tick" of CC.COM posters, for nearly ten years, and keeping it going is on both yours and my 2011 tick list.

 

Anybody who doesn't know what we are talking about should check here:

 

Northwest Mountaineering Journal

 

Look at last year's edition and check the "archive" link to see what you've been missing.

 

This is a project that has been fed by cc.com and the broader community of Northwest climbers for many years but is now in particular need of contributions.

In response to this thread: my goals for the year are to (1) take advantage of improving health to climb with my friends, and (2) to enjoy a climbing season.

 

Tick list?

(1) Finish my 4 year project with a 5 pitch crag climb;

(2) climb a new route on a significant Cascade peak over-looked by local hardmen because it appears easy; and

(3) enjoy barbeque at tailhead upon completion of more than one climb that I think deserves a celebration.

people!

Get on Rad's climbs!

They are.... well... rad!

Seriously!

 

agreed. I did a couple and one of the two I did is the best route at the far side area. (IMO) Gear route!

 

Rad, I think all you need to do is make a photo with route overlays and a written descriptions and the people will come.

I really want to redpoint Chariots Of Fire. Finish a number of sweet routes. Lastly, be healthy and injury free.

My tick list... Im sure I'll get a few tick bites at Erie :o

But I really want to get on Freeway at Squamish, and put up a crap load of new pitches elsewhere. I'll just be happy if it doesnt snow on us in August this year.

It's up at Exit 38 Far Side, near Headlight Point. Rad is pretty good with giving guided tours. The area needs more aficianados. I might come out to play this Summer too and finish a proj not even Rad knows about, but will need to replenish my stolen bolt and hanger cache :|

Far Side out past Ozone on the the way to the RAWK? I'd like to get out there. I heard I can place some gear out there and there is a surprise waiting for me ;) A guided tour is needed since Tim's book won't some out soon enough...
