      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!

Early Tuesday morning, March 13, 2012, around 4am, our Equipment Shop in Fairhaven was burglarized by 1 or 2 people, likely males, and likely climbers...


Items that were definitely taken were:


Splitboard Snowboard:

Voile 171 Mojo RX, with Voile Lightrail bindings. These have "AAI" etched onto the top of the boards, along with a round AAI sticker near the tail. (Part of our rental fleet) Whitish and brown, with a nature/tree/winter theme. Lightrail's have the orange quick release strap, so very easy to notice. The bindings also have "AAI" etched in them.



-Mountain Gear BMG 105, size Small (black and white)

-CiloGear Worksack 75L, size Small (black and yellow)


Ice axes:

-Black Diamond Raven Pros, many lengths

-Petzl Snow Walker many lengths

-Petzl Sum'Tec Ice Tool (w/adze) 59 cm

-Petzl Sum'Tec Ice Tool (adze and hammer) 52 cm


Ice Screws:

Black Diamond Turbo Ice Screws, 22 cm



Outdoor Research Crocodiles, red and black, size Medium and Large

Outdoor Research Revel Jackets, orange, Medium and Large



Outdoor Research Alti Gloves, medium

Outdoor Research High Camp gloves, large and XL



Kayland Apex Rock mountaineering boots, men's 11.5 (likely one of the thieve's sizes, as he appeared to have taken the time to find his size and style he wanted)

Intuition Denali heat-moldable liners for plastic/double boots, men's 10 (Stores that offer heat molding, please keep an eye out for boot fitting requests!)



MSR Lightning Ascent, black, 30 inches



JetBoil Sol Ti stove (Titanium)

MSR windscreens


There may be more, but that is what we've come up with so far.



The Bellingham Police Report number is:


12B 08 776


Thanks a ton for looking out for these items for us! Spread the word, too! We're working on an award that leads to arrest and conviction!

Do you guys mark all your gear with AAI? Just wondering to keep an eye out.

That so much gear you think it would have to turn up at some point.

Hi Chris,


The Voile Mojo splitboard is marked, as it was part of our rental fleet. The rest was from our retail floor. Sadly, much of what they nabbed just came in for the spring season!


Thanks for looking out for us!

Wow....total suckage. If anyone sees any of their buddies with new gear and you are wondering how they could afford it: turn them in/report it. I'm not in your area but will keep a look out.


Hope you catch and convict them and get all your stuff back.

I would check craigslist and ebay for the items. The thieves might try to sell them off in the next few weeks.

someone with photoshop skills should create a image of the perp wearing all the gear they stole, then post the wanted posters on local glaciers.


I mean small packs and med to large outwear. Must be short torsos with large hands and feet. Damn near troll looking.
