      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!

New Avy Safety Gear

Recommended Posts

Got a chance to try out the new avalanche safety inflating backpack attachment this past weekend at Diamond... Conditions were pretty sketch, so we figured it'd be good to deploy the device before dropping in. As you can see in the picture it was probably a good thing to have as most of the bowl slid. It was pretty touch and go there for a bit, but I'm fairly confident that she may have saved me from at least an ankle deep burial.


I would be surprised if I didn't see one of these on the backs of a lot of backcountry skiers in the near future.
