      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!

Los Barriles, Baja Sur. Fly into Cabo and rent a car, drive up and base out of Playa Norte for a couple weeks. Plenty of snorkeling,fishing, kiteboarding, and hiking within day range of the campground (which is right on the water and $10/night). Campground has well maintained bathroom/showers, laundry, WiFi. Walking distance to town. Good grocery nearby.

 

I spent a couple weeks there with my family two winters ago (we drove from WA). I could have spent months.

Lost count of the times been to JT. Takes more then I got left to go gorilla there. Met a hardy young fella that did though. Cold, snow, rain, wind, sun happens w/o warning, as well as, LA crowds and steady train of cars these days. The magic is still there I guess; just saying it's gone for me. Had chance years ago to meet locals at what's his names place but blew/snoozed it off. :sleep: Even tried to get work at local shop but had no game compared to the kids.:cry:

Don't come to 11worth it's been snowing every day since like November
Thanks. Thought I was still a mountain man till this winter here in Portland proved me out to be a limp wimp. Definitely had enough ice and snow to last me to the grave. Still dream about it, not sure why, cause it's over rover. Something to do with pristine vestal virgin snow environment, me thinks. Something about white snow equals purity of soul? Tabla Rasa reboot? :shock: Edited by Lucky Larry

J Trees a great place for seeing famous climbers. I've met Bridwell and Alan Steck. And also Jim Beyer, who was into putting up A5 routes solo, like "Death of American Democracy," in the Fisher Towers. Good name.

Just came back from Vegas and can't believe you're blowing off Ivans offer. I bet he'll even lead the hard pitches! :lmao:

 

It was 69-70 degrees and almost too warm on the south facing walls, which means that Black Velvet canyon should be prime time by April. Dry and warm were the watch words. Good stuff!

You'll be in good company Larry. Ran into many ex-pat Americans and Canadians living down there for the winter. Super cheap living on a fixed income, sun every day, etc., etc. I could see spending at least Nov/Dec down there every winter. I still like skiing.....

 

Take up kite boarding! Looks amazing and is one of the world's best spots to enjoy. I was jealous watching everyone.
