      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!

What else (i.e. I lost my camera and don't have pics of them)?

- Killer Pillar is in fat.

- Bobo Like is in and is :moondance:

- Big Sleep is in WI5+ conditions (normally forms as a 6+)

- Upper Mummy actually formed... Pete Tapley commented this is the fattest he has ever seen it :rawk:

- Narcolepsy and Lurking Smear were climbed Saturday... both of which come in about as often as Dru gets laid :grlaf:

- If you have the winter dance guide book the ice on black magic is down as far as where alex lowe is in the photo... i.e. super fat :tup:

 

Basically a lot of routes that are never in are in right now. Don't get me wrong... not all routes are super fat... mummy 2 was on the thin side... but a lot of the routes that never form are in.

 

What are you waiting for? :wazup:

 

Misc notes:

 

:tup: Very cool to get the chance to shoot the shit with Pete Tapley and Greg of Northern Lights... I hope all you cc turds are smart enough to not spray p tapley and lose yet another great conditions resource :wazup:

 

:tup: :tup: Bryan for letting us dirtbag at his place

 

:tup::rawk::tup::rawk::tup: Bryan's girl Laura has earned my nomination for Girlfriend of the Year for cooking a thanksgiving day dinner for 6 dirtbag ice climbers all by herself in addition to letting Bryan go climbing on their anniversary! AMAZING! :rawk: One of these days I will remember to ask you if you have a sister :laf:;):wazup:

 

 

Gear Notes:

Ice tools with a hammer if you climb with Marcus :laf:

 

Make sure you have all the ice screws before you start leading the next pitch :o:mistat:

 

Approach Notes:

Road for both main fork and flanders is cake right now

 

Check conditions before you go as things can change overnight

 

Bozeman Ice Festival this weekend should keep the road in
