      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!

[big Grin]

listen assmunch I do not even own a dog but, I do sometimes take my friend's dogs climbing 'cause they have fun chasing chipmunks, goats, etc. The dogs never even have collars let alone leashes...that means they actually walk themselves unlike your freaky dog im sure...in fact they actually keep the critters from eating my stuff on the ground as I enjoy getting high off the ground. . besides who you calling gumby you dumbass.......

Charlie,

 

Sadly I did not get into the climbing thing until after college, so I have no knowledge of the sick phat boulder problem in the corner of the Tav. Is it like 5.12 when intoxicated, 5.2 when sober? [big Grin] Ah, Eburg, you gotta love it when the wind is just right and it wafts that wonderful aroma all over campus from surrounding dairies and/or slaughterhouses that just about knocks you flat on your ass!

to further explain the phenomena an example:

 

A short guy was seen driving back and forth along the Icicle with a hottie stopping to "gape" at climbers and occasionally spew forth some beta on what to climb. He had been doing a good job of "gaping" because he knew where and when everbody else was climbing, yet seemed content to drive around "gaping" on Saturday. GAPER

 

I on the other hand, was seen walking around the area of Snow Creek parking lot and Icicle Butt "posing" with climbing gear. Making sure to be seen by everybody, with rope, harness, gaitors and a #5 camalot, occasionally flipping through the guide book to pose as a climber. I was near some rocks later, flailing maybe, but still a stretch. POSER

 

Get it right people. [geek]

As a witness to both of these events (and a participant), I must add that they are very good examples.

 

Further tip on successful gaping: when spewing forth beta on what to climb make sure to mention that they are great places to climb but that you are climbing something else. This helps to bolster the image of you being an actual climber without having to "pose".

 

Bronco's (and my) Saturday "pose" was even more masterful since it was performed in front of a group of clueless adolescents!

Tuna Taco,

 

I think you are a gaper. I saw you at the Feathers redpointing 5.10

I think what we need is a quiz! Jon, Tim, to arms! You could take the GAPE TEST on cc.com and rate how much of a gaper...you...um...your friends, yeah, your friends...are!

 

The very last question should be

 

"You take tests to see if you are a qualified gaper"

You might be a Washington gaper if you believe you climb better after smoking a few bowls of kind bud. [Wink]

Doesn't Vertical World have a Certified Gaper test?

 

2 bucks. Such a deal.
