      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!

...all of a sudden I bumped my head into a maniac skiing my ascent route (I had my head down, curse these ice tools on 25 degrees, it's like doing pushups). As he skied off I took some photos to post later. Hope he had a parachute. I bet he will try doin' the dishes @ some point. It will of course be documented when he does!

I continued my ascent to Muir, wielding my ice tools as best I could muster, after the whipper I had taken at the hands of that Xtreme maniac. Finally, I topped out at the hut, and, in winds that I estimate were at least 70mph, I pried the door open. Crawling inside on hands and knees, my eyes slowly became accustomed to the darkness, where I was able to make out...

Alpine K burning down a monster cherry. I began to protest but noticed that sitting around him were 6 cougars. Man, that guy sure gets the pussy I thought to myself as i backed out the door...

My question is (after much rambling)... Do you find yourself motivated to be better at the things you do than almost everyone around you? It may not be just to be better than they are, maybe we are just motivated that much more in general.

to what extent depends on the activity and the people, but for the most part - yes. not that i am, but i often strive to be. cool question, by the way. thumbs_up.gif

Time to bump this thread again. Whatever happened to 2% chestbeater and suimmitpose.com?

The material on Summitpost where the 2 percenter recounted his bad-ass heli-rescue was priceless. Hopefully there's a way to resurrect it.

yelrotflmao.gif That's priceless, how did I miss the summitpost bit the first time around? I think the 2% guy is one of the better trollers I've seen, this is in the same league as the Sweet Granite In Renton bit.
