      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!

Already used up your vote, but think that there are other Great TR's that other people might want to vote for, that deserve honorable mention, etc? Post them on this thread.

I'm not sure which I'm voting for but I'm going to put my ideas here:

 

RIP Joe. We were very lucky to have had this guy posting on CC.com, and this is one of my all time favorite TRs for sure:

and this one goes with it:

I have not seen a more gripping epic than Amar's Rainier TR:

Ross turning your iceclimb into a ski area:

looking for that Unkle Tricky TR where he climbs with someone he met in the partners section....was it up at Squamish?

I'll never forget hearing about this storying, and after returning from climbing at Vantage, scouring the boards for the tale:

And this one goes to show even a TR of the "dog route" can be great:

Agree, there are so many good ones its really hard to pick one. For now just list them in this thread! We'll figure it out all later...maybe we can make a list of top 50 threads and feature a page on them so they are easier to find and go back to....

Yeah, "Muir on Saturday" has to be in there.

 

As does Layton's TR told from the perspective of his Own Personal Mr. Hankey.

 

On the serious side, Fern put up a compelling bit of prose about getting caught in an avalanche.

This is the problem with the best TR contest, I keep finding TR's that are absolutely awesome, this for example:

 

http://cascadeclimbers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=943353

 

That was an amazing trip. Here's the rest of the story: Picket's Traverse, which I never got around to posting.

 

Reading all of these TR's is really making me want to get outside!
