      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!

Sport Climbing Partner wanted

Recommended Posts

Just moved back to the area after 7 years away. Learned how to climb while in California and Colorado and want to continue here in the N.W. I have led sport climbs up to 11b but am a bit out of practice so 10s are more realistic. Please respond to the post or email me if you are interested. Thanks.

There isn't really any good sport climbing in Washington. You should move back to CA or CO.

 

There is good bouldering here however, but since Washington is a pretty "traditional" place, you should abide by local bouldering ethics, which seems to be:

1. Find a boulder in an area like Tumwater Canyon, where people have been climbing since the 40's;

2. Clean it up real nice;

3. Put chalk all over the holds;

4. Kill all the vegetation under the boulder with your 3 foot deep crash pad;

5. Apply sick name like "skinny puppy death syndrome" to your proj.

6. Spray

7. Spray more.

8. Tell people you found a "super secret bouldering area"

9. Project for days

10. Send (finally) while your bro takes photos with the digi.

11. Claim FA, put in guidebook.

12. Pretend that Jim Yoder didn't climb your boulder proj in 1982 after drinking a six-pack, smoking two joints, and spending a weekend in the Enchantments climbing 5.11 in EB's.

wow, Special...what a succinct answer to the WRONG question...

 

Climbed a bunch w/ Jim Yoder in 1992 and then helped haul his busted ass out of smith cuz he was too stoned to walk and wound up slicing his ankle on a sidewalk of a trail...funny dude...

in regards to the real question, there is decent cragging at Little Si only (don't bother w/ 38, its a choss heap)...WW1 at Si is good, just small and winds up w/ a lot of people concentrated in a small area...there is decent sport climbing and bouldering for the summer on weekends at squamish and all up and down that corridor (but you're crazy to clip bolts and boulder when the crack climbing is so good there)...and smith is a stupendous place for clipping bolts in the winter...

 

Shoot me a pm sometime...maybe we can get out...

I was just up at X38, it can provide some entertainment on a Tuesday evening...but that might be just because I'm trying to break into 5.7.
