      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!

Szy's tale of Dad almost dropping him to his death while reaching for his beer reminded me of one:

 

"Remember, your belayer is drunk. Hehehaa. snort. burble."

From the top looking down:

 

"I think those snow fields connect."

 

 

From Russian partner:

 

"We will complete this climb."

 

 

To cab driver in Saudi Arabia:

 

"Can you get me to the airport in 2 hrs?"

 

Cab driver looks grim but nods yes, get in car and realize we are going in wrong direction, arrive small hut and cabbie gets out and hugs several women and children then we start for airport; realize he was saying goodbye to family in case never see them again

While getting geared up for Outer Space, from way above, in a cracking, terrified voice-

 

TAAaaaake, for the love-a-GOD TAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!!

 

This was a few minutes before I said- Did you just piss right there on that tree?

 

Yeah, why not?

 

Couple minutes later the goat shows up and drives us off the ledge.

 

THATS WHY, You friggin' idgit!! moon.gif

"Boy, this snow is really hard. Maybe we shouldn't keep going without crampons or an axe. Oh, hell, let's go for it."
