      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!

Sometimes you need a good kick in the ass...

Recommended Posts

So I lead my first trad pitch this weekend... It rockband.gifd! I was apprehensive to do it, but my partners were super positive and enouraging... I could have been content for quite some time to just follow others up routes. Doing that was within my comfort zone. But my partners had faith in me(and they weren't gonna lead it because they knew I could, so it was either climb or bivy on the ledge.) so I just took the rack and went for it. Now I can't wait to lead again! Moral of the story: sometimes you need a little push to bring you up to the next level. Thanks guys for the encouragement! (you know who you are) You're the best! fruit.gif

Nice job! rockband.gif

 

You should head to Portland some Tuesday night for the Rocky Butte PubClub. It's not quite as nice as Beacon, but there are lots fun routes and a great group of people.

you know this picture is a good argument for editing your photo. with only a little bit of cutting edges off, the offending top rope would vanish and it would look like a-gal is either leading or boldly soloiing mickey mantle resulting in a better picture. cantfocus.gif
