      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!

It was fun to put names to faces. I got to the CC.com camp fire in time to meet everyone before they split to climb XY cracks. The whole crew was pretty far gone by the time I got there.

 

I did get to follow SK up R&D and got ragged on by my wife and sister for letting her and Greg W jump ahead of us.

I have seen 2 other people get offroute on that thing.

 

Sisu Suomi and one other partner.

 

I just laughed as they flailed complaining about the dirty rock and less pro.

[laf][laf][laf] Thanks much, Gordon; I hope we didn't slow you up too much. That was better than trying to pass on-route; I tried to yard on SK as much as possible to keep her moving [Wink] .

To bad Fred Rogers and I didn't run into you guys this weekend, although thanks to Erik for drawing in the window window dirt. [big Grin] After not having been cragging in months I forgot how fun and relaxing Leavenworth can be. Saturday morning after a false start, Fred forgot the topo in his car, he headed of the Leavenworth and made the hike up to the Pearly Gates. Its amazing the amout of good stuff up at that crag. Thanks to the folks who equipted the area. Its really user friendly. Sunday morning made the hike up to 8 mile buttress. Warmed up on Radio Sex in the wind and rain. Then climbed Scholar with a Dollar and Lazy Boy in light rain, thank god they overhang a bit. I'd have to say both Scholar with a Dollar and Lazy Boy offer some of the best climbing in Leavenworth for the grade. Also I must say thanks to Fred for being my belay bitch Sunday morning. Then did the new route on Icicle Buttress left of Love Donut. I must say the people who put this up found a hidden gem. the route is super fun. One word of caution, when rapping from the top of the 3rd pitch with a 60m rope, it will not make it all the way down to the chains on the top of the second pitch. You must rap into the obvious gulley and either belay from single bolt or scramble over to the 2nd pitch chains. Also, with a 60m rope you can run pitch 1 and 2 together to make a fun 180 ft. pitch.

I had a blast up there with you guys. It was great to put Avatars with faces and do some sweet climbing. You guys are so lucky to have such an awesome place to climb so close to Seattle! I can't wait to get back there.

 

Here is some of the crew before things got ugly: [big Drink]

Shredmaximus, since you're here. Could you explain the shenanigans on Givler's? I don't think I got the whole story. Did you guys belay at a bolt station to the right of the crack on the second pitch?

SKANKY? [laf] STYLIST? [laf][laf] Is that the best you can do Daisy? I have better things to do than play along with you're little elementary squabble... I am neither 'skanky' nor do I have/need/want a stylist... high-maintenance is not something I want to aspire to be.... [Moon]

AA - Worry not, you are THIRD from Right and FOURTH from Left in that photo. Daisy is disparaging our very own Erik, who doesn't look very feminine in that photo if you ask me.

[laf] That's Erik? It must be true about the effects of THC on enanching production of male estrogen.
