      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!

Denali shrinks

The High One is actually 83' shorter than previously thought.

 

September 11, 2013, Anchorage, AK – Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell told a group of map collectors gathered in Fairbanks this week that Mt. McKinley may again be shorter than cartographers thought, according to new digital elevation map data collected by the State of Alaska and multiple federal agencies working in collaboration. During a symposium of the International Map Collectors’ Society, Treadwell referenced orthometric survey data that recorded Mt. McKinley to stand 6,168 meters, as opposed to 6,194 – or 20,237 feet rather than 20,320
