      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 would've come out and joined y'all, but I went out yesterday to do some leading with Seth, and I'm still sore. =/

 

You bastard! You snuck out and did some real climbing that didn't involve dirt and beer bottles without us! blush.gifconfused.gif

You led Emotional Rescue, didn't you, you dog! Congrats! I'm sure you wouldn't be bragging about being sore on Nolses (John F's) new route, named interestingly and appropriatly enough "Glenns Route" a short 5.7 clip up with 3 bolts? bigdrink.gif

 

(Now I'm embarrased as I was out for some real climbing after work on Tue. ) blush.gif

Hey, you've been to video bluff. =D

Actually, I should've led ER since we were in the area for a while, but I didn't even think of it. =P Did Orient Express, Zeeva (?), and Stranger Than Friction. The first move on STF seems harder than 10b, though. =P

That's right, rub it in. wink.gif

Nice job catching those guys!!! The cops should deputize you, then maybe we will have the same response out at exit 38 with the thieves!

That isn't my route d00d and you know it! It's Glenn's Route and if he isn't claiming it then it should be yours.

 

I just own a drill. That's it. That's all. thumbs_up.gif

I just own a drill. Cleaned it, drilled it, led it and tried to lend moral support to you weak-assed pussies so you could follow it. That's all. thumbs_up.gif

Bill Coe: The Passionate Yeoman of the Butte. Thanks for fighting for our little piece of crag!

 

Not me dude, I've aspired to be a yeoman though. Now I'm too old to join the union. But you're welcome anyway.

 

I must like throwing rocks, which explains both my cleaning penchant recently at the Butte and maybe why I was out at Beacon last Saturday. Chunked some nice ones off ala Bigfoot style, as did everybody. Ground crew said some were clearing the railroad tracks.

 

 

Big guy like you can lay the smack down if you see these jackals next time! (Better yet, if anybody sees these jackasses, just call 503-823-3333) But maybe this big loud 3 ring circus that they've been conducting appearantly daily is hopefully over. It sucks to clean up some glass one day and show up a few days later and see 3 times as much in the same spot.

 

Hey Seth, thought you were heading to do some real climbing at Beacon yesterday? You get high centered in the bar? grin.gif Should have figured out a way to hitch a ride Tue. with us. Ivan and Jim were out there or you could have tagged along and climbed with us, but I needed to do some leading, so maybe just following eh?

 

Next time maybe.

Bill: I've entered the hotline into my phone...you know so when I'm doggin a route and I see bottles flyin I can just tap my ear piece and shaazzam, instant police action without confrontation.

 

I hope the bottle breaking does die off so the area can be cleaned up and stay clean, these are wishful thoughts, people will always party there...we just need them to party without the needles, condoms, car parts, trash, bottles and cans (wait...can you actually party without those things?.. i tried once without the car parts and there was something missing).

 

Yes, I did bail out on plans for Beacon to go climbing at the Butte, but I did have a fabulous time and now that i've climbed my second crack climb in my entire life, I feel sufficently prepared for anything beacon can throw at me...except anything above 5.8...oh, is there anything...?ha!

 

I am trying to get out there in the near future, if you have a lead, let me know. As for my ass hitch-hiking; as a transplant eastcoaster I still fear three things: open spaces without trash and noise, people who say hi to me and don't know me, being picked up off of the side of the road with 20lbs of climbing gear in my pack and not a clue as to where I'm going. I did read On The Road in highschool, but I was high, so I can't remember a damn thing...and I am not sure it would help anyways, in our post 9-11 world. Maybe some day though...maybe...

 

Peace.

 

Oh yeah; who wants to climb tomorrow? The BUTTe or elsewhere.

Supurb Paul! Welcome back. Your other partner drop you or did you not pay a gambling debt?

 

Nevermind, I'll get the story Sun!

I'm happy to hear you are healing up Paul. I saw Dave out having a beer shortly after and he told me about your leg. I think I recall some heavy snow that day. It was at the Bowl, so it might count as a gambling debt.

 

Anyway, I was thinking some Saturday morning climbing at Broughton or Beacon was in order. If anyone is up for it, you can save Mrs. Thudman from climbing tomorrow. I guess she's saving her tolerance for rock until a Squamish trip in another week... something about a limited amount of time one can actually enjoy being scared.

I am likely headed to Beacon this afternoon if...

 

Is anyone interested in taking a newbie up the corner? They have done a ton of bouldering but have yet to put a harness on... Looking for someone who wouldn't mind either sewing it up on lead or following third and cleaning everything as well as being on your best behavior tongue.gif

 

Call me if interested: 503.758.5772

As in Saturday AM? Not that early. Jim's been working his ass off at work and I think we'll be looking at a bit later of a start. I'll be out there about 3pm today finishing replacing the anchor on pipeline (my battery died yesterday)...
