[TR] Two White Boys on a Big White Hill - Cheam Peak - Random NW couloirs 5/24/2008

Recommended Posts

Yep. Doing my best.

 

The issue here is, that even my TR's from when I was a 14 year old noob are no less intense than your alpine climbing TR's like your 'FA' of the Haystack.... so your plan kinda fails.

I am willing to pay for you two to get a room, so you both can relieve some pent up tension and get on with your lives.

 

Marc - Ignore the spray and don't fall prey.

 

Summit - dude, why so aggro? that bored? go climb something.

 

Carry on boys. :)

How about you stop PMSing or whatever the fuck is going on and chill out. Stop spraying on TRs.

I liked the blue collar approach to the climb....didn't read much on here in '08 but cool TR...That's the peak above your house where you danced with the bear on your solo trip right, Marc?

 

I started climbing in warm-ups for $10 from Fred Meyer....did so until 2005.

enjoying seeing the young kids getting into shit, especially in blue jeans

 

yah, we kinda get lost in the 'necessary' gear propaganda, don't we. go back a ways, and when the Squamish Hard Core (Hugh Burton, Steve Sutton, Greg Shannon, and Gordie Smaill) did the 2nd alpine style ascent of the Cassin in 1977, Gordie wore jeans for the entire frikkin climb! I don't think they were so broke that he couldn't afford pile pants or whatever, it was just an attitude thing! they were just bigger and badder than ANY climb...

(not that ignorance and arrogance won't also get you killed, of course, but they DID survive, there and elsewhere - 2nd ascent of the NA for Gordie, for instance.)

 

bits of the story are available online (lotsa laughs):

keep on doing what you're doing, Marc - you're doin FINE!

 

cheers,

OMFG. You mean this isn't a troll?

 

So this guy here (from a recent trip report):

 

btw.. my climb is Called Murder in the Dark and is 5.10d or 5.11a (not sure yet) The second pitch is going up soon too. Did you see the cave to the right of the two routes? I managed to climb out the cave and up the face on TR.. it goes at about hard 5.11d or 12a

 

is the guy above sporting the jeans, external frame, and belaying across what appears to be a ski area?

 

:lmao::lmao:

 

 

 

it IS frikkin hilarious isn't it! not quite what 'the label on the box' would have you expect - I think it's called "individualism"!

Not surprising in the last few years that Marc has become a well known climber, while CJB has become a well known douchebag.

Yes, pick my least intense TR. Are you going to sift through my TR's now? Contradicting yourself much?

Hahaha!  summitchaserCJB! 

We need those photos Marc!

The photos are still there, just that site won't allow you to link them.   I will try to fix that if I have time tomorrow! :wink:

This is an excellent example of how you should never judge someone like this.  Obviously young, enthusiastic, and getting after it.  Everyone starts somewhere, and he was out getting better and learning.

It is also a pretty cool genesis moment, but then not really because i think Marc was pretty good at pulling plastic before this.

And summitchaserCJB pretty much left permanent record of how big of a douche he was at that time.  But people mature and evolve, so maybe he is a cool dude now, who knows.

But until CJB comes back and shows us he's a changed man, the abuse will continue......:wink:

Well after reviewing his body of work you'd think the guy was a clever troll.  That would be the best possible possibility, unfortunately. 

 

Also put up "FAs" on the rock to the right of Toxic Shock and on Mt Si's Haystack!  :lmao:

Also is a Tooth speed climber.  10 minutes!

And for some reason...is BANNED. lol.  good stuff, I think he may be in the running for some sort of an award.

 

I wouldn't know all this but I'm trying to find all the reported FAs on the site, and so of course I come across his....

Ah man, BANNED.  That takes all the fun out of it.  But I understand we have to protect those less Scottish than myself.
