      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!

Mt JungleGym TR and Necronomicon sighting

Careful there, Cavey. Your partner GregW was admonishing me about the evils of "aggressive route cleaning" just the other day. You never know who might turn out to be a tree hugger. Hell, I bet you even hugged a tree up there on Mount JungleGym.

 

That's a different definition.

There's a fine line between "hugging" and "clinging to out of a desire not to die."

More like: "Please tree, don't fall off the rock, I'm too young to die."

Come on, Greg: I bet you were all over them with the French kisses, too.

 

"You love me more than Nathan, don't you?"

This gives a new meaning to the phrase "Got Wood?"

I'm always telling new tree climbers, "don't be a tree hugger," it's really poor form, kind of like using your knees while rock climbing.

 

THIS THREAD WOULD BE REALLY GREAT IN THE NEW TREE CLIMBING FORUM

 

Wirlwind reread your posts; you sound like a class A moron. wazzup.gif

Hey, jumping into the deep end is the best way to learn to swim. I never had a prob pulling my rope when I rapped down on the right side of that tree.

I never had a problem with that tree, and I HAVE had a problem pulling my ropes there before, but I'd have to say that, in general, I applaud anybody who takes it upon themself to clean up bushes and trees that are encroaching on climbs at Index. The Great Northern Slab is a beginner's climbing crag, in what was formerly a quarry. It is not a nature preserve. Did they do a clean job of it?

Probably one of those ever aesthetic root balls, still good for a handhold. For a year or two. But no worry, in a couple of years once it's rotting it'll give the GNS that Squamish feel.

 

 

Marauding youths or not, Squamish is sooooo nice. I have almost no desire to revisit Index now that I've spent a long weekend up there.

Of course we did a good job. Layton assisted a bit and I confrimed with him about the idea beforehand. I asked if I could use his name here and he is ok with that.

 

Check it out! It's a beaut.

 

BTW if you get your ropes caught in Libra Crack you are throwing them in the wrong direction. Besides who cares.

 

I pulled lots of bushes and big trundle of death rocks at crags before. It's not like someone should deserve a chestbeating slap on the back for it. Most of the time I found it is in the interest of the party ascending. But thanks for it everyone else out there.

 

We even spit shined the crack so a bomber cam will go in. If you cant put that cam in then try harder. It's not like it's a 5.10 death route with no pro.

 

I had a bet that Erik would be one of the first foos to complain. I was RIGHT. hahaha.gifthe_finger.gif

I am sensing ***Moron Alert***. Cutting down trees is a major dull wit, nimrod move. But alas thats what the neuvo sport/gym bred climber mentality seems to be based on.
