      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!

Sweet sweet pictures, great report and it looks like a really nice cabin! We stayed in Canmore in a run-down townhouse. ;) But it was warm (in some rooms), had hot water (scalding) and a stove (two burners worked). It's the ice and good company that matters.

 

We got on a bunch of things, with the theme being, not doing the last pitch.

 

Grotto Falls (to warm up, His and Hers are a little thin, didn't do)

The Professor (wet, freezing cold that day, last pitch looked great, ran out of time)

Cascade Falls (crowded, super fun in the sun, ran out of time for last pitch)

Haffner (great fun)

Guinness Gulley (fat, not too wet, ran out of time for last WI2 pitch)

The Junkyard (tons of stuff to do, soloing around)

Louise Falls (crux pitch looked too hard for me to lead. The other parties backed off too)

NEW YEARS! (Drink all the maple syrup!)

Moonlight and Snowline (super picked out, not wet at all, cruiser)

 

I wish I could go back and get on all of those climbs you did!

Nice Priti! Louise looks bad in that photo. You will be back I am sure.

 

Moderators, what was I doing wrong on my Photos loading? Thanks
