      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!

Skagit County Crags Guidebook

Recommended Posts

The Skagit County Crags guidebook is complete and available at the Mt. Erie store and also at the Big Rock Cafe(located at the hwy 9 and College Way junction in Mount Vernon). This guide includes over 200+ routes at 9 different crags; Mt. Erie(Select), Rosario, Big Rock, Devils Rock-pile, Umbrella Rock, Calendar Butte, 7 Mile Rock, Coal Crag, and Iron Mt Crag. Some great traditional, sport, and mixed rock-climbs to be had, minus the crowds. My pops (retired computer tech-e guy)is putting together a website skagitcrag.com for updates on new routes, road conditions, etc.

 

Kompai!,

What's the cover route?

Thad Nelson climbing "Wisecrack" the classic crack on the Wise Up Wall at Coal Mountain Crag. Terry Stoupa/Dallas Kloke 1972.

 

Thad has also put some beta on Mountain Project, I believe its listed under Cumberland Crags.

Thanks!

I forgot to mention that if you purchase from the Erie store you get a free chalk ball and some proceeds go toward the Kloke family foundation.

 

Some copies now available at Big Rock Cafe in Mount Vernon.

Brandon,

Now I know why it was hard to go climbing with you. I'm looking forward to getting my copy. Can I order one from you or do I have to go through the retail stores?

Of course I've got a copy for you Chris. Or I should say I will soon. The machine is down at Village Books but should be fixed within the week. I think the 2 stores are out.

 

BTW I was going through my box full of books and saw that I still have your castle rocks ID book I need to get back to you.

 

Thanks for the + feedback!

I picked up the last copy at Erie General store last week. I assume they were out of chalk balls already but that wasn't why I stopped anyways. Time to restock!

 

Nice job. :D

Hey thanks Jason!

You may have to ask about the chalk balls since they forget to add them sometimes. They still have some though and they have more books now too. Don and Jerry are the nicest people and really like it when climbers stop by.

 

If they are out at the Erie store, don't forget you can also purchace from Big Rock Cafe too, and their portabella burgers with sweet potato fries are yum.

 

Sunshine please

Is it possible to go to Village Books and have a copy made? Or do they only print in runs?

While you are at it, how about MORE WEEKENDS! This one is kind of rainy. Can we have a refill?

They haven't had them barcoded yet (costs more $) and do not carry them at the bookstore. Maybe the new bouldering gym in b-ham would throw a couple copies on the shelf. Vertical World Everett was nice enough to place a few copies tomorrow. Is it already gym time!? Uhg

Give Mike or Martin a call at Pro Ski and Mountain Service in North Bend. Or stop by with a dozen - I'll grab a copy first chance I get.
