      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!

That was rad, definitely pretty extreme looking getting pummeled from above. I was surprised to see how wide the Pencil was. I always looked up at that thing and it looks like a pencil from the road. Good work on the climb and vid.

"...After Avalanche #3, it was time to bail..." Classic! :laf:

 

Bad Nodder!

 

Joe, if your mom saw you do that, she'd kick your scrawny little ass from here to next Thursday!

Great video....but the "soundtrack" made me want to jump out a window.

Yo, yo....homeys! How about remixing it to something the whole family could enjoy without requiring a bleep every 5 seconds and an urban dictionary.

Glad you survived the ordeal.

More like every 3 seconds...

 

Ken, we were surprised at how wide it was too, having always thought it to be more of a pillar. The ice was really shitty though, and as Cappellini pointed out - probably about ready to detach and fall down.

 

Shitty ice in Washington? Sorry for being redundant.
