      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 was on my way to climb the Mole in the Enchantment with Gary a week ago and we came across the most interesting trash/treasure i have ever found. a few questions come to mind. what is 'camp corona', why was the sign (along with a steel frying pan and spatula) at Mesa lake, and what is with the phalic imagry? it would have been much cooler had we actually found some corona beer in the creek after our long day in the sun. does anyone want to claim the sign?

Definitely odd. I was bivyed under a boulder South of Prusik Pass a few years back and woke up staring at an old steel plate. It looked pretty ancient, so I left it as it was. Cool to think about who passed before and left it.

When we got stuck for 3 days in a blinding whiteout coming back from the SW Ridge of Mt. Hunter in AK and bivied at the base of some random rocky promentary to wait out the storm I got out the tent (one small ass Bibler, three dudes, two sleeping bags) one evening to dig out and stretch the old legs and I found this old 5 gallon bucket stashed by some rocks. Inside was some nasty old food, dehydrated fruit and oatmeal and shit. Some of it was dated 1984. We didn't eat any of it, we hadn't ran out of food or anything, but at the time it felt comforting to see signs of other people. And the bucket made a nice cooking platform.

nah, it's pretty small, only a foot in width. i suppose i could have used it to sled down a snow slop had we found one. the full size frying pan is bigger and certainly weighed more. it was a weekend for finding trail trash. we found four tent stakes and a small bit of cord at Coney lake, a stoper on the Mole, sign, frying pan and spatula at Mesa lake, birthday balloon in temple canyon, and a sit pad by Nada falls leaving temple canyon.

I did find a baggie of bud at Barney's Rubble back in the early 70's. There was also a pipe in the baggie.

 

Naturally, I turned it in to the authorities... (Believe that?!)

We were at smith the day it caught on fire several years ago. Next day we went to Wolf Rock and took a big whipper on one of the routes I think Bret Hall put up. On the way back down the hill I found a big old bag of nugs! On a non-climbing trip last year one of my co-workers found $1,400 and a bag of smack at a trailhead on the Snoqualmie river, turned it into the cops, he had to wait a while but ended up getting the money! no shiz story

my climbing partner and I were on our way to the Tooth one fine day, and god only knows how he saw it, but suddenly he was off trail and climbing a tree... came back with a velvet sachet with a little glass bong in it... Comment something like "damn, it's empty" while holding up a little plastic baggy...

In the hills of Montana where few people go, I found a small promentory on which to sit and gaze into the hills before me. After I had sat there for a few minutes, I started to think about how nice it would be to have a little smoke. I adjusted my butt on the rock and looked down. There between my feet was a tiny glass jar like a blistex jar only clear and in it was a stinky bud. To this day, I am assuming it was pot but I do not remember anything else about that day.......................

Sweet. Its so righteous to find an airplane manifold when your out in the mountains and you don't have one. Jah provides.

hmmm sounds like a case of stoners leavin there shit every where grin.gifconfused.gif

 

This past winter I was indoctrinated with the principle of the "Stupid Check." Works wonders for making sure you don't leave anything behind.

 

I'm disappointed that no one has any clue about the origins of the sign.
