      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!

Alpiners Anonymous: PDX dry tool night

Recommended Posts

after that dissertation, you didn't go?? WTF?@!??!? yelrotflmao.gif

 

Yeah, it rained @ 3-4pm but then stopped - sort of. BTW Rudy - that dissertation was the short version.

 

So you know, my internet to English Translator translates WTF to What the Fark. Fark will not translate.

Can't go tonight, but I can probably do tomorrow night, assuming the weather's OK. Give me a pm if interested.

Please blame John Frieh, a little known fact is he's the Mother Teresa of PDX rockclimbers and the patron saint of drytoolers. I'm just a hanger-on.

 

Good luck with your wrist, probably a good thing you're female, everytime a guy says something about spraining his wrist they get Rosy-Palm comments and xxx-rated ragged on by the peanut gallery. blush.gif

 

That and excessive bigdrink.gif comments. yelrotflmao.gif

 

ps, if you do a search under "pub club" or "pdx pub club", you'll actually see that this thing has been dragging on for some time. You can also search for "bill is an asshole" statement and see how I react in a bar when my second beer is not brought in a timely fashion and the waitress walks by 3 times on a slow night and ignores Bill. frown.gif

 

Which also might explain my lack of climbing partners right now and the reason why it's not called "pub club" anymore. blush.gif

 

How about "fight night"?

But does your garage have poison oak, discarded TV sets, and the occasional used-condom-surprise?

 

 

 

 

 

I didn't think so.

Since this is where all the PDX climbers hang out, I couldn't resist a little highjack - garage climbing in Portland

 

 

 

I just voted this best hijack of the year to date! grin.gif

 

Love to head over there, esp. on those rainy nights. Brace yourself, John might ask if you have a drytool area.

If you're looking for garbage at the base of the climb, then yes, my garage has it. Blackberry bushes, used diapers, cat spray, and I'm sure if you dig enough, used-condom-surprise. The former homeowners did not subscribe to garbage collection services.

 

Of course I'm cleaning it up, with some help from The Access Fund.

Wednesday or tonight would work well. Otherwise, I'm stranded until the weekend. I've gotten two rows of plywood up (8ft) and have two more rows cut to fit, teenutted and ready to be attached. Heck I even got a couple holds on the wall.

What about climbing Tue and Thur kids? wazzup.gif

So Wed. at nats, (5-8pm is good, I work till 5 so 6pm for me) tue and thurs real climbing sounds good, I might need to cancel some other stuff so I might be iffy tue and thurs.

 

Q to the gallery, does somebody whos going to show have a 10'-12' stepladder? Nat says he has 6'ers.

6pm, my house 6127 NE 12th ave, 97211.

 

The tallest part of the wall is 15 feet, so doing the math on an 8 foot ladder means you'll be exceeding OSHA regulations. But 8 is better than 6. I need no other equipment.

 

Oh yeah, mattresses - I'm collecting non-urined, indoor mattresses. You know the type.

You are so shitting me. ?

 

Best timing all year. Drug one outside last week and had to suffer hearing Jasmine complain "I just spent $300 on that thing last year!". "$300 , you didn't just toss it out did you?"

 

"Uhhhh, Hey no worries", says I, "The lad and I will just fish it right back out of the trailer and drag it back inside."

 

"Out of the Trailer", she replies ? "OUT OF THE TRAILER ?! "(imagine a look of "What planet ARE you from", "NO WAY YOU'RE BRINGING THAT BACK IN AFTER IT'S BEEN IN THE TRAILER".

 

"Hey," I smoothly and calmly say, "there's nothing wrong with it, we can brush off the construction debris" (The lads keeping the head down and his mouth shut right now, I cluelessly ignore his cue).

 

"NO WAY YOU'RE BRINGING THAT BACK IN AFTER IT'S BEEN IN THE TRAILER".

 

"No hey it's OK really" I smoothly ..........

 

"NO WAY"

 

"But....I don't want you to feel bad or anything...."

 

"NO"

 

Point is: I have a newer Sealy posturepedic good enough to sleep on I'll tie to my roof and bring over. If nothing else I can practice my mattress moves and construction debris brushing while you dudes paste plywood to the walls. yelrotflmao.gif

 

See you Wed.

 

Tue John? You call the route. Anyone else? I've got clearance. 6pm for me.

I'll be there at 5. If it is just you and me I will boulder until 5:45ish and then start hanging TRs. I will pick routes based on what is dry. Look for my truck... I will be nearby. thumbs_up.gif
