      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!

Are you serioulsy going all those places this year? On 'vacation' and not business trips? If so, I'm F&^%ing jealous. Please share how you will accomplish this? thumbs_up.gifconfused.gif

1 goal down, ticket for other booked, 3rd possibly as layover. May go to SE Asia instead of NZ wave.gif

 

You were in Nepal recently, no? Did you say you were headed back? Mind if I ask you for advice?

 

I didn't end up going to Nepal. I had to change my plans 5 days before I flew out because of political problems there (in hindsight I should have still gone). I spent 3 months in SE Asia instead. Going to Nepal and Tibet next year.

Are you kidding me? Its been the best weather and conditions this year for mountain climbing in the northwest since at least the 80's. Plus, many days at Index in January and February. rolleyes.gif

This is all a mess. I think he means thread and not post. I'm not even sure that a pre-chestbeat is, but if one existed, I'm pretty sure I would be good at it.

Not that it matters now cause this thread has turned into spray, but this what I got in mind.

 

 

 

Another trip to South Africa, hopefully get on some ice.

 

Killimanjaro, probably the Coke Cola route.

 

Mt. Kenya, 10 days on the mountain hopefully several routes.

 

A most likely untouched wall in Rusumo, Tanzania, next week.

 

Southern France for a week sporto shit.

 

And maybe finish up the year with Christmas in Morroco.

You guys are messing up a good thread with talk about climbing. Please desist.

 

quit w/your lawyer speak.

 

i have failed miserably so far in my previously stated 2005 goal to climb more days than not. so now my goal is to climb more days than i have so far. and spend a week in the enchantments and climb some other places too.

Finish off two adventure projects I have been working on for months in Oregon that are eating at me. Hopefully complete them within the next two weeks, so my mental state of mind can return to normal.

Liberty Ridge

Huantsan- Peru

Alpamayo-Ferrari route-Peru

NB Fury

NEB Slesse

These are the routes, in order that I would like to do this season. In addition, if time permits a traverse of the torment forbidden looks nice, as does Alberta via the Japanese Route.

All I really care about is having fun, and learning as much as possible. It seems that the adventurous routes seem to give me this more than trade routes. Hopefully my path will show me these opportunities for adventure in the future snugtop.gifwave.gif
