      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!

CC.com SausageFest '09 Slide Show Sun Nov. 15th

Recommended Posts

Folks,

 

More details to come in the next few days to week. SausageFest is scheduled for Sunday Nov. 15 at Shultzy's restaurant in Seattle. For those of you don't know about this, or forgot what happened when you were there, this is our big slide show/party we try to put on every year. I know we haven't done this for a few years so we have a little something special planned for this one. PUT this on your calendar, you WILL NOT miss this event.

Historically it has been pretty favorable to those who come, and I can't see it being any different this year. There will be a drink special. Shultzys arguably has one of the best sets of rotating taps in Seattle. It's not uncommon for them to have one of two kegs on the westcoast of something from Europe.

Porter, feel free to use my projector for that one, especially given that I have not yet gotten around to picking it up from you...

Steve Swenson and Joe Puryear will be showing slides, along with others (maybe you?)

 

Joe is in Alpinist 28 if you read that magazine.

It's in a city near a park. Right? Can anyone imagine their fingers in that flare above the zig. I think it's only 3 times lead. Right? Better yet. See if you can name the route and the three people in the world who have lead it.

No, I'm pretty sure that's near the topout on that one route on Rainier. Whats that route called again?

Yeah, I figured it was City Park. Let's see, Todd Skinner led it first, and I can't remember the other two off the top of my head. One was a double amputee though.

 

Okay, I just looked it up, but I won't spoil the fun.

 

EDIT: I think there were 4 free ascents...

Actually, I think it's up to 5 who've lead it, right?

 

Todd Skinner

Hugh Herr

Alan Watts (he didn't send, but he still lead it)

Mikey (edited for brain fart)

Ben G.

Watts was the man, but if you didn't send, doesn't really count. Hell, I've "lead" the thing...it was 5.10 C1+ for me.

 

But you do a great disservice to Mike Shaeffer, who got the second redpoint, by leaving him off your list. Skinner did not climb the full line, detouring around some .11 in the upper half...survey says, no send or send of easier variation at best.

 

IMO, your list should go something like:

 

Skinner: freed cruxes, failed to redpoint.

Watts: freed cruxes, failed to redpoint.

Hugh Herr: Sent, but controversy over prosthetic feet used.

Shaeffer: First send with no controvesy.
