      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!

Looked difficult but wasn't so bad......

The complement to Petey P's post. I'm thinking the first time I watched some guys climb Easter Overhang through binoculars, it looked like a body-length chicken wing OW. The guy I was watching cut his feet loose and it looked like he was just hanging in space from fist jams. I was intimidated heading up there but the roof crack has an inside flake, and then you reach up to a handle bar flake, jugs bigger than the lip of Brass Balls. Then you clip this bong and it's so secure! The one-arm, no-feet hang/chalk up is mandatory!

Going around the roof on the 2nd pitch of Spiderman at Smith looked intimidating for a mere 5.7. Anticipating a possible whipper, I took an extraordinary amount of time to set two perfectly placed and expertly equalized cams. I psyched myself up, committed to the moves, and then laughed at the extent to which I had built a psychological mountain out of a mole hill.

That is by far the best single move on that entire climb thumbs_up.gif
