      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!

Adventure Climbing

Recommended Posts

What is the big deal with climbing the rotten $#:! in the Cascades? The only problem I see is the fact that a hold or two might pop and pro is so-so. But I figure it like MtNeering, DON'T FALL. There are few people and the view is better than any thing at Smith. Any one want to go? bigdrink.gifbigdrink.gifbigdrink.gifbigdrink.gif

No one has written anything. Either because I suck or you are all out climbing. I will take either answer. My feelings are tough.

the weird ones are those who seek out choss at smith. I recently got to see some photos of a midwinter shiprock ascent, for instance.

Dude,

The rotten stuff's no big deal.

It's the clawing through canyons of thorns that sucks.

It's surprising. I just moved to Oregon and I thought there would be more climbing. You're right, you kinda have to resort to adventure climbing in order to spread your wings with so few solid options.

Mikey, shouldn't your sig say "you can't fall until you try"??????

 

no, i can easily fall without trying. you can't stike out unless you step up to bat, however.

Oregon is home to volcanic burps that never really solidify. To some extent they hold shape but not real well. what I don't get is the fact that the 60's and 70's saw tons of exploration and ascents on what is now frowned upon confused.gif So..... were the men of old ignorant or just better equipped with balls? shocked.gif I have a hunch we are all pussies now, in need of a more cush glamour session rather than a true who gives a madgo_ron.gif kind of climbing expirence.

 

Any one have loppers I know of some rocks in need of some trimming. Long approach!! hellno3d.gif
