      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!

Funniest Term in Climbing Slang

I would think these would make terrible appitizers being so lean of meat and sustinance...

I like "drop knee". It doesn't really sound funny, it just makes me think of someone doing a drop knee and having their knee drop off!

dry-tooling...

or hearing climbing terms out of context...

Heard in the Operating Room of a local trauma center one night, after a person was saved by a chief resident's quick hands, technical excellence, and just being damn good ...

Anesthesiologist: How'd that lady do from early tonight??

Surgeon: She's Bomber, man...

Anesthesiologist: Bomber? sorry to hear that...

Me playing translator: she's just fine, it's a climbing term for "rock solid"

Anesthesiologist: Oh... uh... glad to hear it...

I've always got a juvenile thrill out using the term 'Rack'.

Even if you've just introduced youselves, Climbers don't mind if you ask them if they have a nice one. If they really do have a nice one, they are always willing to show it to you and let you use it.

I've always had a juvenile chuckle with the term "nuts."

"How many nuts do you have on YOUR rack, eh?"

"Why, that's a nice set of nuts there!"

"My nuts are old and worn, I should probably get a new set of nuts."

"My rack of nuts is larger than yours."

But then theres always: "Hey man, nice nuts. Can I borrow them?"

Chuckle chuckle har de har har. sigh... rolleyes.gif" border="0

I dyno'ed for one of her slopers, I then found a bomber two- finger pocket. I traversed around the backside to a greasy lieback. I then applyied a heel-hook, followed by a mantle, leading to a climactic finish. The descent was very strenuous, involving a lot of bushwacking wink.gif" border="0

I have gotten many laughs with the term BOHIC. (Bend Over Here It Comes). This is a military term with an obvious meaning. Some climbers I know have aplied it to bad wether.

This term can be modified as folows: BOHICED, paste tence BOHICING,present tense, BOHICER (an ugly looking cloud aboot to ruin your climb) or cumulobohicus. [big Drink]smile.gif" border="0

favorite term: CHOP

acronym for CHeapskate Objectivity Paralysis

You suffer from CHOP if you are so concerned about leaving gear behind that you rappel off a #4 stopper/manky fixed piton/faded frayed webbing, etc. [big Drink]

Hay man,I cant find them, but did you see my LOWE BALLS ,they were dangling next to my NUTS maybe I should use my PIN here but this CRACK doesn’t look wide enough to take it any way. it does look like the CRACK is opening up and it might take a SCREW a little way up the middle of the CRACK any way I think I’m going all the way UP IT. It looks like it will take FINGERS almost all the way up. Doesn't looks good I just hope it doesn't COME DOWN on me grin.gif" border="0[Wazzup]

Personally I think "two banana" is the best user name so far.
