      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!

after spending the last week touring through the rockies we were ready for some ugly american partyin' -where were you washingtonians? colder than shit, dale and crew made it in the family van and caddie so no excuses on road conditions...either way the small crowd was friendly, and the whole event was very low key. kudos to the moose and lyle and the dude from mec, great people...sorry about the cave again, lyle.

I was up at the fest this weekend. It was a good time and low key. I got to see a guy from Dru's posse climb the mixed route to the left of Icy BC on Friday. Dude was out of screws half way up and ran it out to the top shocked.gif" border="0shocked.gif" border="0shocked.gif" border="0 Had to have been 30-40 feet of runout to the top.

I had to throw away that pair of underwear I wore that day and I was just standing on the ground below. [hell no]

That sounds right, but I didn't see the name in the book. It has 3 bolts on the rock, then some really thin, sketchy patches of ice before it gets thicker near the top.

You mean to tell me after all the Thursday hype about the big ass caravan trip to the Yukon, only one or two of you's went? That's lame man...that's really weak. Why spew the big whoop, if you ain't goin'? [Moon]

I saw no whippers. Yes Laurin the German ice god sent No Deductable (but hung on a bolt frown.gif" border="0 ) and deeping Wall Direct etc. but then again the dude has done Nemesis and Riptide and M8+ in the Riockies so it is nice of him to visit our local test pieces and humbly condescend to doing them tongue.gif" border="0

I beat him at pool though wink.gif" border="0

I talked with the guy who took the whipper: Third pitch of Icy BC, 10m fall onto a screw. He went back up and finished 'er off. Good to know screws work, but better him than me...

Mis-placed thanks at the start, I had nothing to do with the Fest other than provided the screen for Slawinsky's slides. Paul Malkinson co-ordinated the efforts this year.

BTW: Tres Burly about 3/4 formed but still not quite there (maybe now?). Red Wall Wanderer (Copper Creek)looks like a big, fat, blue Rockies climb, go climb it (but avoid the cave - see Crack's note above). And the lime green puke about halfway up.

-15C to -17C the last few nites, -10C during the day.-L

he says that's probably the hardest pitch he's ever lead ... I told him it's only M2 and he's just weak tongue.gif" border="0
