      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!

I think the Jug is operating under a new name. Probably still the same high-quality operation though...

Ivan, although I can come and go when I want here, the responsibility is like a prison. So, I could leave here at 2:30, but if we're busy it would be like the capt. of the ship bailing first and saying "Dudes, good weather gotta go." So if we are busy it will be hard to creap out too early.

 

If everybody would remember that yesterday it rained. It's slick at the muddy top after a winter of moss growing. Most of the accidents at the Butte are from falls off the top, I'm not kidding I've seen it more than once and heard many stories. Sometimes climbers just clipping into the anchors. So best to use a long rope at the top to be or backup the anchor, tie off that tree and be clipped into it if you need to get close to the edge for any reason like setting up anchors or just grabbing the rap lines. (Hill street Blues, "lets be careful out there" kind of deal.)

 

Don't be causal, I picked up and delivered to the emergency room with my former climbing partner Bob the nurse one of the most experianced, best, most knowledgeable Oregon climbers who merely slipped off the top and rolled to the very F*en bottom of the hill doing cartwheels all the way downhill. It was pretty loud.

 

Broken wrist, 2 broken ribs, ruptured spleen, punctured lung blah blah. He was just "hiking" around to come climb with me. (Breakfast cracks)

 

Nothing that surgery, emergency room trauma Doctors, more surgery, stainless steel screws and 2 months in the hospital couldn't fix. He credits us with saving his life as he repeatedly insisted he was fine and just wanted to go home.

 

I haven't seen any cash from it yet:-(

so have we actually settled on the RNR for drinks? i have sensed no consensus on that. i vote for the rnr though, as they serve tg and the upstairs is nice n' private (lap dances, anyone?)

 

anyone gonna be there before 4?

Geez Bill, that reminds me of the only time I was at the Butte last summer. I think ChrisT could tell the story with much more vivid imagery than I can though

Wow, these falling off the top of Butte stories look like they are going to start hijacking this thread.

Sorry.

 

Hope to see Chris Ts and Petes smiling faces and happy visages there tonight!

Can't make the Butte. May be at the RNR. Hope to see some of you there without any open wounds or contusions.
