      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!

Did you type it in Word and copy and paste into the link? This happened to me a few days ago. Once I retyped everything without copying from Word it worked.

 

If that doesn't do it than the only conclusion can be someone on the website has been watching too much porn...

Re-typing not needed. The text string needs to be translated into a non rich text format. In non computer terms, simply open up a simple text editor program such as notepad and paste all the text into it. Copy it again and paste it into the post. It should insert just fine due to it being pure text as opposed to rich text.

 

Notepad is just one of many methods for this, you could probably even use your e-mail to convert it to a good format. Images however are another mess which require the usage of BBcode.

Third time trying this now ha! Use paint it works!

-Road is clear to TH

-Snow starts when forest opens up at the last creek crossing

-Glacier walking to gain the N Ridge had a few crevasses crossed on bridges

-40° nevee to gain the Ridge with minor rockfall, wear your helmet!

-Ice cliff surmounted in 1 70meter pitch. Took screws well.

-Steep nevee above the ice cliff afforded 1 screw for a few hundred feet of climbing (didn't take pickets)

-Crossed 2 crevasses to gain the summit. Skirted the first on the right, second crossed with bridge

- Walked to the true summit then descended via the standard route, W-SW towards Roman Wall. Towards the Col before Colfax Peak. Dropped over to the N side and then plunge stepped back to the trail

Thanks Josh! That will save at least two hours next time. However, it will also save two beers for which I am totally against...
