  1. Trip: Okanagan - Cirque of the Unremarkables Trip Date: 02/14/2019 Trip Report: After work ice cragging, what!? Pretty fun, comes in fast.. about 20 min north of Vernon, just take the turn-off for the Tolko mill and you can't miss it. Gear Notes: Ice stuff Approach Notes: Nowt!
  2. Looking pretty damp the last few days (I work @ the mill so drive past it every day), it's warmed up to about 0/-1 celsius the last 3-4 days, we got 5-10cm of snow today. Still hanging together. It'd probably be good this weekend + a few days but that's about it.
  3. Did we read the same article? It was pretty clear that lowering the thermostat 2 degrees ain't gonna cut it. I think we need to accept this is going to happen, do our best to mitigate it, then prepare as best we can. Plan to evacuate coastal areas, where are we going to get food & water, how are we going to keep swarms of desperate refugees out, etc etc.
  4. It's odd that we even think that we can avert this, it's not like this report is news. Our habits aren't going to change, and if we do, well, the rest of the world won't. There was that report a few months back about how scientists were amazed to still find CFC's being emitted and depleting the ozone.. and they traced it back to China... a small example but indicative of the larger problem.

    Good god I bought this song on Tuesday and have listened to it about 40 times and killed 3 people since then.
  11. In Memory of Ryan Johnson

    Looks so happy with his boy there
  12. Marc and partner missing in AK

    Bumped them both to the top of the BC Forum for your reading pleasure! And I'm mistaken, he soloed Cheam a week after his high school grad.. shit... I was probably playing Nintendo a week after my grad..
  13. Marc and partner missing in AK

    I met him once after I read the TR where he bailed off Slesse and lost all his gear, I sold him a bunch of old cams to restart his rack, nice kid. Haha his dad was with him and was a hard bargainer. One of my favourite all time TRs from CascadeClimbers is his "2 white boys on a big white hill", also liked the one where he soloed Cheam's N Face on his high school grad night. Sad event but as others have expressed 'live by the sword, die by the sword' right.

    Christ, I thought mine were the only ones. They love the "Star Wars" spinoff one... Personally I'm listening, over and over again, to the "the Evil has Landed" by QOTSA
  15. Can anybody point me to/provide something more than what the all seeing/knowing Google proffers? Looks like mountainproject has the semi-authoritative listing. Specifically multi-pitch... what's that falcon crest one at Harrison? 6p or summit? Nicolum seems to have a nice 4p linkup. Thank you in advance,

    Public Service Announcement - Nicolum Knob is shitty now. Don't bother unless you've got a few canisters of Agent Orange. The approach is totally overgrown, routes all mossed up... too bad really.
  17. Best metal bands

    Jesus Christ, spray had 1 new topic in May, oh Cascadeclimbers I mourn ye.... No Van Halen or other faggy bands to be nominated.. I propose: Bolt Thrower Killing Joke (not quite "metal" but fuck it) Fear Factory Proceed...
  18. Best metal bands

    NEIN! ...but it helps
  19. Best metal bands

    Opeth sounds good, thanks for the tip, gonna get some!
  20. Sativa vs. Indica

    I shall singlehandedly revive spray... or I'll revive something singlehandedly anyway... Personally I like either strain in a pure variety, it's those crosses I can't stand, I get the classic "omg i'm having a heart attack" symptoms. But... on a desert island... I'll have to take a fat sack of sativa. Goddamn I'd have the neatest, tidiest island in the eastern hemisphere. Yes, I've been drinking. Why else would you come to Cascadeclimbers?
  21. GoPro/Drone Footage

    Seconded. With the additional comment that once you've seen one ski movie you've seen em all.
  22. DOM vs Sex Shaming

    Uhhhh... wouldn't the dude with the gun just shoot you?
  23. Van Halen

    Seriously, who the fuck is Van Halen? Are they the same as Bon Jovi?
