      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!

When using pitons remember, the rock, like a good woman, can only take the occasional pounding.

Whether you agree or disagree, if you stay tied in, you agree.

 

If not now, when?

 

Practically all of "Postcards from the Ledge", particularly Childs' 10 Point Dialectic of the Bivouac ("You can tell who the dominant climber is by who becomes the pillow", "If I had a sleeping bag inside this bivy sack I'd be dry and warm, if I had a bivy sack", "There's always a better ledge just above", "There's never a better ledge just above")

Life teems with excitement, but man is not ready for adventure unless he is rid of fear. Fear confines him and limits his scope, he stays tethered by strings of doubt and indecision and has only a small narrow world to explore

The thinking that got you into this should be different than the thinking that gets you out of this.
