      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'll cover you on some 1" webbing. How much do you need? Cut in any particular lengths? Or just bulk? bigdrink.gif

 

 

Couloir, long enough to wrap around a sheep twice and be secured to a post? hellno3d.gif

We need:

- wood scraps: prefer dense hard wood scraps in any shape/size. We are using these for holds so we need a ton!

- deck screws. Get a hold of me for size requirements.

- lag bolts: we need a bunch. Get a hold of me for size requirements.

- 1" tubular webbing: the more the merrier. Needs to be black, brown, or grey. No bright colors.

What the hell are you guys building out there? I don't understand why no bright colors for the tubular, it is not like the place sound too inconspicuos with scratch marks on the cliff, a retaining wall and hay strewn all over the place for your sheep. rolleyes.gifyelrotflmao.gif

the new area

 

As in not Rocky Butte wave.gif

 

A man made public structure in the greater PDX area has been identified that has a number of characteristics that will allow for the manufacturing of a number of drytool routes.

 

Hence the laundry list of needed gear. yoda.gif

Under the Vista Bridge? A guy landed next to my mom as she was driving under the thing about 10 years ago.

I thought vista bridge too at first, but it doesnt seem to offer enough vertical rock. The bridge is off of burnside, go left onto vista, instead of right onto 23rd. That takes you over the top. The road under leads to an on ramp for 26. Follow the max line.

Woooo, sorry, I'd love too but I just saw this! I'm at work and heading for the 20 min Stoneworks pump before I go home (its the next block over) whenever I finish. (Might be a while as I keep finding other things to do, like this!)

 

You see how my life is out of control. Yesterday I decieded to head for T Creek today and maybe TR a route or 2 and then hit Meadows for some runs on the way back, now all this crap.......sigh..........I need a snow shovel to clear off the desk, and I have so much stuff backlogged I'm not even working on desk stuff.

 

Johhny, there is boltage! I went 3/8-16 x 5-1/2 and not 6 or 7 like you mentioned as I feared if they were too long it would cause you to run out of threads which only measure 1" long. 30 pcs with nuts and flatwashers doubled. If it really f*ks you up I'll trade them out for whatever will really work so no worries.

 

You're welcome to more of these if you need them just speak up. They really didn't cost too much either, as much as a couple of pitchers of beer at Skamania so I got the $ covered - no worries.

 

Now, let me know how to get them to you. I don't even know where you live ya know.
