      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!

More great stuff from Merv:

 

You can temper your own f*&%ing adventures, and live "long and healthy" for other ppl. This is a climbing forum! Not a quilting society...

 

Yah, man. Almost forget. WE'RE CLIMBERS! and we're wild and crazy and reckless, hard-drinking, wild-partyin', don't-mess-with-me-and-you-can-shove-your-opinion-up-your-butt-tough-talkin', hippie-van drivin', hanging out with a bone-in-the-nose girlfriend with hairy armpits, Whillians/Burgess Brothers/Vulgarian emulating, spit-in-the-face-of-the-reaper, buccaneers of the vertical frontier, matadors of the quick draw, desperados of the bouldering pad, Yee ha! and we don't care 'bout nothin cuz we're climbers! So don't even suggest that what I have to say might be weak because...I'M A CLIMBER, and I'm wild and crazy and reckless, hard-drinking, wild-partyin'.... rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif

Who are you to tell me how to live my own life.

 

Dude...he can tell you whatever he likes. And you can choose to consider it, follow it or leave it. "pope" ain't your dictator or puppetmaster. What a country!

 

It's cool with me if you want to make your mom feel good knowing that her son is safe and sound with a f*#%ing spotter, crash pad, and altimeter at the local crag, but expect a reply if you push that on me.

 

Once again....how's it been "pushed" on you? Take it or leave it.

 

Have a nice day.

 

P.S. Two drops of the "f" bomb in one post? Come on, man....really. You're better than that.

Pope, that first paragraph is a thing of beauty.

That's Merv's work....and the best thing I've read on cc.com this month. I thought I'd reproduce it here in case anybody missed it the first time.

Well, Merv is not a fan of boulderers, sport climbers, hippies, or women who don't shave, but it's a fabulous rant and does a nice job of skewering the whole "wild and crazy guys" posture that runs through the sport as a whole. It's not literature, but it has a voice I can hear in my head.

Lurching drunkenly towards the light, sickening theater of clowns regurgiting the litany of facts and alledged information he carenes, carenes off of the allegorical lampost. The dull sick twisted logic of his youth now lost in the depth of the running arguement in his head... To bolt? or not?

 

Du mois.......du mois......du mois? Yes, I shall post once more..du mois... yellowsleep.gif
