      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!

Hi Everyone,


I'm looking to find some more regular climbing partners to hit the crags with this year. I have only been climbing about a year but I have come a long way in that time. I have taken formal classes on anchor construction and climbing technique as well as having read numerous books on these topics. I'm not stating that I know everything about climbing because that's far from the truth. I just want to convey that I am a safe and competent climber that can think for himself.


As for my climbing ability, I have followed many sport, trad, and multi-pitch routes. I will admit that I need to start leading more and really want to work on my lead head with a safe and patient partner. Last summer I was following 10+ to 11- routes that suited my style of climbing and pure crack climbs around the 9 to 10- area.


I have spent this winter bouldering approximately 2-3 times a week around the V5 level and find that I'm much stronger than last year. I'm not so much concerned with what grade you climb as long as you're safe and not high strung. Anyway, if there's anything else you want to know or just want to talk climbing over a beer, shoot me a message.
