      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!

Stair Climbing

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I'm new to the forum and just moved to the NW. Does anybody who lives in Vancouver, WA know of any bleachers or stairs around Vancouver that I can climb/run on my nights off? I am from a small town that uses a stadium for the whole county, and they never lock the stadium down so all residents can use it anytime. Since I moved to Vancouver I have found that every stadium is locked up to the public (understandably). I really don't want to venture down into Portland just for some bleacher steps. If anybody could help me out I would be ever so grateful!

Brit,

 

I'm from Vancouver originally but now live in Spokane. If you're intent on running bleachers check out one of the local High Schools, Ft Vancouver High, or maybe Columbia River High School in Hazel Dell would work.

 

FYI there are some really nice training trails near you as well. I'm sure others on this site can help you find some of them. Angel's Rest trail is on the Oregon side of the river, just off the hwy @ the Bridal Veil exit. A bit further is Larch Mtn (Multnomah Falls)trail for a better work out but there'll be some snow up top right now maybe... The days are probably long enough now for a run up Angel's Rest before dark if you off work early enough.

 

Trails are better for ya I think, and more fun.

In Vantucky, you might try a parking structure. There are a few downtown. And one at the hospital (SW, closer to 205).
