      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!

Seth, Ivan and Powderhound are all begging off to do real climbs! Johns out of town.

 

How about Mav, Hugh, Knottygirl, Paul, Kirby .....some of you guys?

 

Head count so we can choose where we want to go?

Mav: maybe allergic to latex, glass or used tv's? How did it go at Beacon for you?

 

(Nate- just gotta jump right in and invite yourself, we'll plan on your being there, that makes 3 committed, you - me and Sean.)

 

opps, re-read it and you were posting to Mavs which was Beacon only.

it was a great day all around! just beautiful weather.....

 

OT:

(it was 9:30) confused.gif then tried to hit the Wind River Hot Springs and found out that that is closed now, after 20+ years? anyone know about this? can you still get in through Carson, just not over the prvate land? what a bummer!

Named Cruisemaster.

 

Wind River HS parking was always private. They closed it almost 20 years ago cause of excessive trash after trying for a while to charge people and it's still closed. If you find a way across let me know.

 

Those guys slept in and were showing up when we were leaving. Joseph posts as healyje and Kevin posts as Kevbone. Jim won't get online as I offered to give him a computer, and Andrew (guy with Kevin named Andrew, not Rick, is from Colorado and doesn''t post that I'm aware).

Prelude to story from last night. Broken beer bottles have slowed down, but not stopped since the police got involved.

 

Story from last night at Rocky Butte:

 

Sean was waiting for me to re-do a bolt on Bills Buttress that I'd boffed (undersized worn bit). 4 Russians wander by, (2 men, 2 women) then choose to wander away where they would be alone and not under Seans watchful eye where they alighted at the top of Phylyx.

 

After I finish my business, Sean mentions Russians and we discussed plan of action: either call 503-823-3333, the police non-emergency line, or discuss the issue with the Russians.

 

We choose discuss as there was only 1 visible 40 ozer and 1 can of beer visible, not a short case like usual (maybe these are not even the bottle throwers).

 

It was a short and sweet discussion. I said something like there has been problems with people throwing beer bottles off the top....

 

Dude interupts, and in accented English says " OH we always take garbage out", and points to a sack which had blown a short distance away and indicates that is the haul out sac.

 

"Great",say I all reassured," thanks so much...."

 

Off we go. We are down below and approx 20 min later we hear a bottle get tossed almost directly below where we had last seen these people.

 

My point: from now on out, if I see any Russians drinking on top, I WILL CALL 503-823-3333 and say: I THINK THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THROWNING THE BEER BOTTLES OFF THE TOP OF THE CLIFF ARE BACK AND DRINKING IN THIS LOCATION.

 

Please do the same anytime you see Russians here. It will stop if we have the willpower.

Unbelievable. Don't they know we kicked their collective asses in the cold war? And stole red october from right under their noses???

 

I was thinking we should send Sean up there to intimadate them. Seeing a fella who weighs 113 lbs threatening to kick ass should be enough to stop them right there in their tracks eh?

 

Those wars were not won BTW, I suspect that they are trying to get revenge by breaking glass throughout our country. They see our weak spot as our pets, so this will cause your dogs to get cut paws at the bases of routes, and then you will cry Uncle and they will win.

 

Course, if you go walking around with those lightweight nambie pambie gym shoes that have the 2mm soles, plan on a tentnus shot first.

So last night while I was waiting for my friend to show up (at Rocky) I noticed a "security/safty car" riding up and down the road scoping it out. Seemed nice and waved each time he passed by.

There were also some teens sitting on the blocks above where Bill's setting up climbs and I watched as they threw their gallon of whatever over the edge. So I explained to them the possible outcomes of their actions....they rolled their eyes at me and left. rolleyes.gif

No other peeps wandering the edges with bottles in hand.

Anyone climbing this hot weekend? cool.gif

Climb with me today? wazzup.gif

 

You begging? yelrotflmao.gif

 

 

I thought Tue and Thurs were climbing nights?

 

BTW, Joseph says there may be a person or 2 coming up from Tenn for a class or convention that climbed at the Butte last year and wants to join in this Thursday too.

 

So blanket statement to everybody, and don't take personal offence: no farting, burping or rude noises and lets put on some damn manners and show these folks some NW Hospitality if they come along Thurs.

Tue after work, John will be running laps on Toothpick. I will be dogging the same. You are all welcome to head over and climb all of those routes in that area with us.

 

I hope to be there @ 5:30-5:45pm.
