      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!

Yeah, and first one to rap bolt a line on McKinley's South Face wins! Just imagine, 50 pitches and nothing but quickdraws... [laf]

In the mid 80's the Blue Ice Couliour on the Grand was melted down to ice that was 1000 years old. The top two pitches of the North Couliour of the Middle was frozen mud and the "moderate snowfield to the summit" was a bone dry 600' first ascent on clean low angle granite.

Yup. Give me break. It's been almost 20 years and a few extra tequilas. [Wink]
