      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!

your = belonging to you

proper usage = Is this your spray?

 

you're = a contraction of "you" and "are"

You're spraying at me.

 

Thanks.

the one in the finger crack?

 

i used that for a rappell directional, so that ones rope would not get caught in the in libra crack, when pulled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

why change something to make it better for you? not really a woodsman's approach to the challenge. why not change yourself?

 

either way what is done is done.

This tree at Index, and the tree at Beacon have gotten argued over ridiculous amounts. Look at the bigger picture. It's like you can't see the forest for the trees.

As a postscript I did cut down the maple at the base of Godzilla last year (no troll) yelrotflmao.gif

 

I checked for Uncle Tricky hanging out in a portaledge first. He wasn't there.

 

There was some woman at the base of a nearby climb. I walked by her with a chain saw and said, "I'm going to make a little noise." She glared at me as I dropped the tree into the swamp but never said a thing. hahaha.gif

Hey Kurt! Could you come over and do some work on the local pooder stash? Would be nice to have some thinned out tree runs.

I'm sure there are lots of trees that deserve death for the greater good, but I'm kind of lazy about it when I'm not getting paid. wink.gif

I recently received a grant from BC Forestries and the Twixelptiluiptic tribe to consult on the restoration of the Stawamus Chief to the condition it was in when the First People made their way over the land bridge from asia. The result of our efforts can be seen below. It should look even more impressive from the new Tram to the summit that is currently under construction.

Heh - This old thread brings up a good question - Are there times and places where cutting down some trees is a good thing for the area as a whole? While touchy I'm sure I'd argue most definitely yes. Parks and other "developed spaces" have a lot of benefits vastly outweighing the small patch of trees sacrificed in their making. (Forests etc should still be protected, don't get me wrong here.)

Good example: Index Walls. Obviously there's a lot of "growth" around the base that's a nuisance to climbers (lots of "weed trees" among the old, proud trees) We also have talked lately about the upper wall trundling issues and how increasing foot traffic in the area might help with this issue. Why not turn the lower wall into a "park" of some sort? Thin out the weed trees, landscape the area, throw some grass down and boom! Nice open park to visit, hike to the top from, eat lunch at etc etc - Crazy non PC idea? You bet evils3d.gifevils3d.gif
