      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!

So, we left extra early on Friday, hoping to score a permit up at Sahale Moraine camp. No Dice. A boy scout troop had 12 folks up there and the rest of the permits were gone by 9:30am. We thought about doing Balck Peak but my girlfriend decided we should do a day hike on Saturday since the weather was so bad, and then attempt a one day ascent of Sahale. This coming from a girl who has never hiked more than 6 miles in a day with no pack! Well, we got up early on Sunday and hiked up to the Moraine. I took all of the weight out of her pack heading up the terminal moraine. It was a beautiful day. We roped up and headed up to the summit. Very straight forward. Most folks didn't even have crampons or a rope. Good climb, but a long way to go. If the views were not as good, I'd say the climb/hike may not be worth it. Girlfriend did complain about sore knees and feet. 14 miles round trip. So, is Sahale a good GF route? If she is used to hiking long distances, yes. Other wise I'd say it is a good GF route IF you can score a permit and camp at Sahale Moraine!

as a veteran of many failed relationships i can say with high accuracy that you are entering a world of pain. you want a girlfriend alpine climb? take her to lake louise in canada and hike up to the teahouse. hear what im sayin?

 

I gotta agree with you here. I've come to the conclusion that trying to force my hobbies on others, whether a girlfriend or just a buddy, never seems to work. The problem is the things that I generally seem to fall for in girls don't often coincide with climbing interests. I guess I like typical 'city girls' or something. I guess I've sort of accepted that having seperate interests isn't that bad.

yea. and ive come to the conclusion that i lose girlfriends when i start complaining bout how fuckin lameass lazy they are and to hurry the fuck up cuz speed is safety and to stop bitching bout the exposure. i dont mix pleasures anymore. i dont even take women fishing wit me. i just tell them girls 'its called testosterone. deal with it and shut the fuck up.'

 

Lummox, you really ought to consider dating men. I'm not being snarky here, it's just that you apparently don't understand the female psyche. Seen it in male climbers before.

I think he knows females well enough to not bring an inevitable bad situation on himself.

I don't know a lot of women who respond well to being told how "fuckin' lameass lazy" they are. You and I both know that no one who knows what they are doing is going to get into a sitch their partner/GF can't handle...unless THEY don't know what they are doing. Don't be silly!

Oh come on. I took my wife up North Ridge of Baker for her first glacier climb. She'd never even been on a glacier or swung an ice axe. She climbed it in fine style, and as we were descending she mentioned that Coleman-Deming "looked pretty boring".

 

You got to give her props for that!
