      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

I'm headed to the sawtooths tonight or I would come out... sorry guys.

 

Public Sprayer Announcement: At 43 pages the PDX thread is plenty bloated... please keep the spray to a minimum so people don't have to wade throught the shit to see where we are climbing. Thanks! wave.gif

Page 22 is a hoot! So what kind of mountains are in "PDX"? What does "PDX" stand for, anyway?

Technically, PDX is the airport code, not an acronym. But anyway, I might join up with y'all tonight. Don't really care what we climb, although I wouldn't mind trying to get up the route Michael and I worked yesterday (without falling this time =) over on video bluff.

 

Is there a good route in the low 12s?

No, the book is wrong, always has been. First time I heard 12 was from a 5.13 climber who tried it. Try it and see. Then we'll talk. I use to be able to run up the thing. Not anymore. 12 for sure.

 

Or I'm just old.

 

And Fat.

 

Just do hold elimations Sean. Use 1 arm or 1 foot. See you folks later.

 

I have Wasp spray for huffing afterwards. Lets party.

I don't have any major plans after work. I haven't decided whether to go to the gym or climb outside, so if anyone wants to meet up, let me know ASAP...

 

Bill?

I killed the wasps over the weekend (I think) so Vertical Therapy is now available. Done that one?

 

How about that offwidth next to Phylynx, that's good for a workout.

 

Or anything you want is fine.

If Bri joins us, we may want to find out how hard she wants to climb before deciding on anything specific. =) I'll have to check my list and see if I've done vertical therapy, but it doesn't ring a bell. If she doesn't come, I'm half-tempted to work Packin' Heat on mean street. But only half...

Vertical Therapy is @ 20 right of Toothpick (11A/B) as you look at the wall.

 

You'll get pumped on Toothpick, if not, I'll let you carry a 50 lb packpack to simulate what I'm experincing or ..."On the edge" is 15 feet left of that, it should be on your list of 12's. VT will be a good warm up so you don't blow any tendons.
