      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!

4 new trekking poles from Black Diamond and Grivel that pack up really small. Read about them here.

Any idea how stable they are or the weight difference? I like the concept, but can already hear my wife yelling..."You already have four pairs of poles and you need another pair why?"

I've used the Z-lite, the aluminum one with 10cm of flicklock adjustability.

 

It's awesome. I'll be getting the Ultra Distance soon.

I checked out the DBs the other day and they are very light and compact. Hard to say how they'll hold up but they do feel flimsier than what I've currently got. I'm careful not to be too abusive through the talus fields though. Gonna get a set with my REI dividend.
