      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!

Proof that you don't have to be sport climbing to hangdog the shit out of something. (Hi Dwayner!)

 

Awesome climb, though! Those moves around the roof: crazy.gif

But is it really "trad" when your pro is pre-placed?

 

fuck yeah! When it is like 5.14 or so IMHO it is acceptable.

The moves are no different than clipping bolts. Since when are hard climbs suddenly "trad" climbs just beacuse they are hard?

awsome climb, technical it is trad, but it hasn't been freeed yet its still a project. trad = tradditional= no fixed gear on route( or very little), plus he top roped the first 20 or so feet.

he is definatly a good climber, but that route hasn't been "freed" by him

Freakin' rad. Who cares about hangdogging, pre-placed, and all that shit. Anybody on here who sprays shit about it on here probably can't climb it.

 

Anybody familar with the music that is being played, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on that CD? Good song, just wished it kept playing throughout the video.

It is interesting to note here that there is no difference in redpoint and pinkpoint these days when it comes to hard trad. If a climb is done placing all gear on lead, it is an addendum, rather than the standard. A serious crack in the foundation of pure climbing, IMHO.

 

Amazing climbing though! thumbs_up.gif

A 'little' scream, but screaming for several seconds doesn't do anything but express frustration. Geek_em8.gif

Not to be a dick, but don't you guys think it's a little odd to be ragging on this guy's style of ascent? The way you say "well, it's not REALLY trad" makes you sound as if you're suggesting that if YOU were to do it, you would place all the gear. Newsflash: you're not gonna do it in any style, preplaced gear or otherwise! Ever!! So why try to bring down the accomplishment of someone who did?

yeah but if the gear is already there.... just like the bolts are in sport climbing then what is the difference. If you talk to trad climbers they are always like " yeah well you get really pumped putting in the gear and shit" The gear is there already in this guys climb, all he has to do is clip it. THeres no difference.
