      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!

UW rock

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have information on the fate of the Rock? Will it be impacted by the new 520 project or does the UW have plans for this area? Any info would be appreciated.

The rock seems safe as it can be, here is part of an email I just got regarding the rock. This is really good news from the someone on the inside.



Hey Nick,

I asked Matt Jensen about the rock (he's in charge of the IMA crags) and he said that the UW rock is in no danger of being torn down -- if it was, it would have to be approved by his department, and informed me that if it was in danger, he wouldn't let it go without a serious fight. He also let me know that the bigger threat to the rock is the fact that the rock is old and as it ages, it may becomes less structurally sound. There is a VERY slight chance that the construction they are doing down there right now could decrease the structural integrity of the rock. If that for some reason does happen, Matt has a proposal ready to go to build a new rock.


All in all, good news. Let me know if you find anything else out.
