      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!

Ivan/erik, big tall guy, nice fellow, can catch falls well I enjoyed climbing with him.

 

Yo, no need for him to anchor in to catch you eh?

 

Please note the revese is not true. grin.gif

if blownout is 10a, windsurfer is so not 10b

 

What is it Iain? Isn't Windsurfer 10a too?

 

The babes must like watching him thrutch Ivan.

I'll just say blownout is significantly harder than windsurfer and I'm sticking to it.

 

To me it felt like a lot routes at devils tower. No move was harder than 10a but the whole route was a sustained. Therefore when you reach the upper crux it feels harder than it is, and lie back always do anyways. fruit.gif

more accurately i'd say the second pitch of blownout goes at 5.whah - hella fun though and worth murdering my favorite climbing shirt for....

Nice job on that route. Was wondering how things went after chatting you at the base. The second pitch is definately one of the harder 10a's around.

Got to love those stout climbs at beacon.

Like to take an easy day, maybe run up the SE corner and need a partner.

 

Wrist still a bit off, but can still belay to 5.13c, as long as it's single pitch.

Hound: I'd be game but don't think I'm more than 50% right now so why stick my wrist in a jam and wang-it-off to total failure.

 

I need someone who wants to hang with a hurt old man for 3 hours or so for some easy pleasing cruising and just getting out. I rather do it Sat. to see how it feels. I would do that Sunday for 1/2 the day. I'm taking my wife and mom to a fancy restraunt at 5pm Sunday though so I need to be back in town by 4pm or earlier.

 

I might just go do some easy bouldering on Sat. too to see.

Mountains? Bet if you grabbed your tools with a partner and headed to do the Elliot/Petes combo you'd feel worked by the end of the day. grin.gif

 

BTW, for the boards FYI, my version of moderate = 5.7-5.8, Hounds moderates low 10's I'd bet.

 

Hound, Beacon moderates; you might look at little wing, Jills, the crack to the left of LW, and right gull for some easier moderates at Beacon.

thanks for the flatery Bill. However my idea of moderates for sunday would have been like 5.8-5.9, but that doesn't mean I don't love crusing up easier stuff. A couple of my top favs are a 5.7 and a 5.8 at city of rocks, wheat thin and rye crisp.

Hey Bill, sorry to hear about your injury *yikes* glad you are feeling better enough to go out again! does this mean you'll only be running 3 laps at a time now instead of 6+?

 

i'll be at Beacon on Sunday doing some easy/moderate climbing... Should be a beautiful day, my wednesday Beacon outing/day off got rained out frown.gif so i went mountain biking in Post Canyon instead.

I'll be out with my wife Rhoda on Saturday and up for yardage on moderates both days this weekend. Also will be taking Gabe Bailey of the BRSP staff up the corner for his first climb...

Thanks Mav, yup, 3 laps max yelrotflmao.gif! So, can I squeeze in with someone Sat? Maybe we can get there early and have it to ourselves?

 

I have a call in to Jimmy O as well (left message which means he's at Beacon now) - as I have his reworked shoes that just came in today, and could do it with him if he was accomodating: if you guys don't want it to be too big of a cluster...

 

Joe, you should hook up with the hound and burn some laps Sunday. See who crys Uncle first kind of thing. Do R gull, Jills, etc.
