      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 all,


I've been in the Seattle area for about 2 years now. When I was a teenager I rock climbed quite a bit as part of an outdoors class in my high school. After school though I didn't have people to go with so I pretty much quite climbing regularly, though I have been out here and there throughout the years.


Anyway, I've finally decided to get back into climbing so I've been going to vertical world at least 2 times a week for the past couple of months (currently climbing routes up to 5.10c). I'd always climbed outside before, so the gym climbing thing is new to me. A month ago I spent a day climbing in Red Rocks and this reminded me how much I love climbing outside.


My goal this year is to get outside and climb more, hopefully finding some experienced people to learn from. I've been acquiring gear so I don't have to be a total gear mooch. Also been practicing knots and building anchors at home.


Any recommendations for finding mentors that are willing to do some easier routes to help a newb learn? Looking for someone to give tips, evaluate my fixed anchors, show me a little about trad anchors and placing pro. Would like to learn to second on trad routes.
