      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!

Where are the GREATS???

Recommended Posts

So as an example of what I have been talking about here:

This is an excerpt from a private e-mail meessage I received. I will not reveal the poster's name. I think it is obvious he or she did not it to be released. It refers to the thread which baselessly blasted CB.

"I respect you for standing up and taking an issue with the terrible bullshit that was propogated on this thread. I truly don't understand someone who will hide behind an alias and essentially tell someone behind their anonimity that they think it's their fault their spouse died in the mountains. I wish that you would extend sympathies to this person from me. I feel guilty just through association with this website. I do not conjecture on things of this magnitude and I do not like to be associated with negativity that is as real and mean spirited as what we've seen here."

Hmmmm, Why is it people don't post here?

Good to know there are people out there that know it was bullshit...to bad the bullshit chases them away.

Even better than saving my life, those old woolies have helped to fill up my social calendar (I attract sheep whenever I wear them).

Fred is bad ass. He followed one pitch of easier WI4 at Gibraltar Wall and also a lot of Grade 3 ice. He even tried to lead grade 3.

We had fun who cares who was ropegun. Dru you've been listening to Erik too much. Just cuz he can follow Wallstein around I guess he likes to beat his chest. tongue.gif" border="0 Not that nobody does it though wink.gif" border="0 He's a good climber either way. I guess I magic my way up climbs according to you huh? Well we'll see. All I can say is that just cuz someone climbs a crack rated 5.10 for the umpteenth time and then finally leads it dont mean squat to me. Maybe I magiced all those leads on Mt Stuart, Toketie Wall, Snow Creek Wall, and Prusik Peak etc. rolleyes.gif" border="0

Either way it is all about fun. Fred is all about pulling his own share of work. I got a ton of respect for that man. BTW Dru he wants to do Honeyman Still. How did it look or should I even ask.

Pretty Nuts was a cool climb smile.gif" border="0

Will lurk for most of the day. [big Drink]

Hey Rod, aren't you a lawyer? Got a mirror?

Worthless piece of shit. I hope that CC:er is hit by a bus full of nuns holding babies on the way to the hospital, and it doesn't stop. I would then pee on the CC:ers grave. What a gutless and classless person.

Now you're hitting the general public's sentiment towards lawyers.

No bady wants to be around that kind of person. Why do posters on this site take it?
Now you're talkin' brother.

Oh, wait, I take it all back, it was all a joke, don't sue me, please, don't sue me rolleyes.gif" border="0

Report:

Drive to Eburg with Fred. Have dinner with Charlie and Fred. Head to Idaho lots of snow on the road.. Sleep in some nice person's home that Fred knows. (He seems to know everyone) I see piece of "Black Book" inluding photos and proposed route (secret) that night.

Drive up and meet Crack, Danimal and Jordan at Gibraltar Wall. Nice wall lots of ice.. There I meet fellow ccer WadeMeyer wink.gif" border="0 We climb there that afternoon and the next day. Fred follows up to easy 4 and tries to lead 3. He is very ambitious and friendly..

Drive to Golden and sleep at another person's home. Climb Pretty Nuts. Drive home.

Stories. None just go climb with him yourself. He is a humble, quiet, ambitious, and friendly person. Very likable and just like a lot of other people out there in a personal sense. You just have to scream to communicate wink.gif" border="0
