      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!

Master Cams - $48 bucks a throw; $80 bucks - not worth the difference unless you've got money to burn.


A few years back during the recall crisis I was trying to help Dave with some ISO/QA/QC systems work (or complete lack there of) around the axle hole drilling and stem assembly and got to I speak with someone in the business who was also trying to lend a hand and who twice tried buying CCH. He'd run all the costs of manufacturing and said, as designed, they were too labor intensive to be profitable at a retail price point he felt comfortable selling them. His team had done some design refactoring on the stem sleeve to make it easier to manufacture, but neither buy attempt ended up closing for a number of reasons.


In the end, I'd say his analyses were spot on.
