      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!

Summer Partner(s) who wouldn't mind a new climber

Recommended Posts

Looking to get into climbing this year. I will be taking a 6 day course on Baker with American Alpine Institute in mid-June when I'm done with school, and hope to do as much summer climbing as I can after that. I do not have any glacier travel experience at this point, but am an Eagle Scout and have done a solid amount of backpacking over the last couple years (around 50 nights). One of my backpacking trips was 3-weeks of difficult hiking in the 7,000-12,500 ft range with 45-55 pound pack, I lead a 1.5 week trip in the same area, and I have a good base of general outdoor knowledge/experience. I'm looking to climb Baker (during my climbing class), Adams, some other introductory Cascade peaks, and Rainier (my main hope). I am currently getting into better shape, practicing my knots and reading up on mountaineering skills/techniques. I value safety over all else and appreciate any advice or help! If any of you wouldn't mind a novice tagging along later in the year, that'd be sweet! Thanks!

I don't mind taking newer people along. I am usually looking for partners in the summer, particularly those that can get out mid-week. It is a long way off for me to start planning trips, but once the summer rolls around in June, send me a PM or something and we can see about connecting for something. Good luck with your AAI course and keep reading!

Are you still looking for summer climbing partners? I have taken a few classes with the Mountaineers and am always looking to add people to climb with. Let me know if you are still looking.
