      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!

As long you've got enough experience for the both of us, I'm down. What I mean is, I've got some climbing experience but I'm guessing not as much as you. I'm also in B'ham. Snowshoes, snowboard, little bit of rock gear, a couple ice screws, couple pickets, boots and crampons... I know there's a recipe for fun in there somewhere.

 

I might be busy on Sunday though.

Justin-

I'd be more than happy to do something unfun with you, seeing that is my specialty. Or even better, have Jeff take you somewhere. Ha ha.

I have a surefire recipe for unfun. Pick a day or two when the weather looks nasty, pack a bunch of crap and head out saying "I know it'll break, it's gonna clear up." Then proceed to next day or two in the tent. For extra fun, go somewhere with a snowpack but *below* the expected snow level. This recipe has worked for me time and time again.

Hiking in the rain for three hours to ski 1000 vertical feet in a whiteout was probably the most unfun/stupid trip I've done. It RULED! fruit.gif

Yeah, my trip up to panaroma point and back a few weeks ago in a comlpete whiteout was right up there. Afwul snow and complete vertigo. I actually came to a complete stop and then fell right over a few times. hellno3d.gif

If anyone wants to climb Red Mountain near Snoqulamie pass on the morning of 2-15 I'm down. It looks like a sweet descent from Alpental's Chair Two. Just have a beeper and shovel. I got an extra pair of snowshoes. Anyone??

There is in fact talk of a knuckledragger assault in that area tomorrow. Would be a multilateral operation involving myself, some buddies, and a guy Sky knows, who as it happens needs snowshoes. I also will be carrying a beeper and shovel, I'm not sure about the others.

Well I will be at the summit west parking lot in a blue Ford Ranger with a Black canopy at around 8 AM with two pairs of Snowshoes. My name is ARI. If I don't hook up with anyone, I'll just hit Alpental.

A-Dog we came looking for you around 8 but no luck. Maybe I should have told you I have kayak racks. Hope your day was cool nonetheless.
