      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!

The Portland Alpine Festival is here Nov 3 thru 8!

Recommended Posts

[font:Verdana]The Portland Alpine Festival starts Monday and goes through Saturday November 8th with 5 athletes and over 25 events all week!


We’re also starting to get some fantastic promotions through Facebook and various climbing magazines and also some great press from the Oregonian.


Here’s an article from Terry Richard all about our keynote speaker John Roskelley:




And here are two more articles about the festival:






The biggest event of the week is The Summit, on Saturday Nov. 8. All the athletes will be there, signing posters and books (Roskelley is bringing original copies of Nanda Devi to sign!) This night will be the perfect finale to an amazing week of fun – there will be great food, drinks, a silent auction (Tons of gear, books, photos, rental houses, gift cards & more), a live auction, awards, a Vendor Fair – new gear, schwag, lots of your friends – and the highlight of the night, a presentation by climbing legend and Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement Awardee John Roskelley.


We want everyone in the NW that loves to play in the mountains to come to the festival and especially the Summit!


Our goal is to make the Portland Alpine Festival the greatest event, workshop and competition in the Pacific Northwest for climbers, hikers, skiers and everyone who loves to play in the mountains. So, share this note with your friends, take a look at the festival schedule again to make sure you don’t miss out on anything (http://portlandalpinefest.org/festival-schedule), and we’ll see you next week!
