      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!

Great weather today. At least I got to enjoy it at the UW rock. Met Charlie and NbyNW, bigdrink.gif guys. And of course the regulars, Coach and his royal court.

Bronco and I hiked to Snow Creek Wall for exercise, ate big-ass breakfast at Rennaissance Cafe, and climbed Saber at Castle Rock with much wetness. Got the granite groove on after two days at that Smith Rocks funkiness.

I got there relatively early - 7ish, so I caught the gaper show on the way down. It wasn't just the plastics and giant packs some of these folks had, but full alpine regalia complete with helmets, ice axes, and one dude with - I shit you not - wands!!

 

.. but hey, if I wasn't such a gaper myself I would have been somewhere other than si.

LOL...man, Si cracks me up. It's always good for a laugh. I ran up last week during the pouring rain and saw all sorts of madness. One guy had these giant ass 36" alaskan powder style snowshoes strapped to his pack. I guess he needed them for the 6" of slush up on the summit! yelrotflmao.gif

yellaf.gifyellaf.gifyellaf.gif My calculations included...

Plastics: 2 (Gotta break them in sometime right?)

Helmets: 2 (Probably for the Haystack)

Axes: 10 (Don't wanna slip on the muddy trail!! And besides they look so friggin' cool!!)

Shovels: 2 (Lets make an igloo!!)

WANDS: 2!!!!!! (I don't want to get lost... SHEESH!)

 

Honestly tho... if you wanted to carry the weight wouldn't be easier to take a bunch of water and then drain it all on the top to save your knees?? I refuse to beleive these people actually think they NEED this gear, but are going for the workout (like me). I'm not a fan of weight... I'd rather go fast and light and go up and down a couple times rather than carrying 50 or 60lbs on my back.

I'm with you dulton. Even if you do want the weight, taking water and dumping it is a lot better than gypsying a bunch of gear onto your pack just to look like a tool. I also agree that simply speeding your ass up is better excercise and a lot less wear and tear on the joints. I suppose I can sort of buy the rationale that if you are training to carry weight, then carrying weight is good.

I was up there and carried my lawn chair, a walkman, some green and a six pack of pbr. Chilled up top in style (not forgeting my cigars of course).
