      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!

CC.com 2011 Photo Contest presented by AAI

Recommended Posts

Cascadeclimbers.com 2011 Photo Contest presented by American Alpine Institute

Thats right! It's back and badder then ever! This year we have over $2000 in prizes.

 

We haven't had our photo contest since 2007. If you happened to miss that one check out the 2007 Photo Contest.

 

This years contest is presented by American Alpine Institute and they have generously donated $1000 in gift certificates for guided trips or classes in the northwest. AAI is located in Bellingham and have some of the best guides in the world, many of whom post here on cc.com. You can find more about their their various programs here.

 

Other generous sponsors include Pro Mountain Sports, Seattle Bouldering Project, and Backcountry Gear.

 

Speaking of Seattle Bouldering Project, if you haven't heard about them they recently opened in May. It's Seattle's new bouldering only gym and I believe it is one of the largest in the US.
