      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 want to try my hand at something around .10+. I've been spending too much time in the gym bouldering.

Sean, I know you got a new rope and are very proud, but last night Troy (cyclone) drug out the best looking rope I've ever seen. Bright yellow with a slight green irridecence. WOW.

 

BTW, a respectable pump was had by all last night: Nate, Troy, Tim and moi.

 

Da boyz were flyin....Tim wuz drippin...Newcomers were flippin. All good.

Biggest cam I have is a #3.5 friend. Biggest hex is a BD #9. We can probably figure something out, though. We're creative. =)

I'll go saw a pallet up right now. We'll sling a 2 x 4 that measures 4-1/2 inches. Wait, I don't have a friggan saw here.

 

Hmmmmmmm.

 

We'll figure something else out, bring the rope protectors, 3 tricycles, a midget in a clown suit and a sheep.

Well a good time was had by all. Tim, Ron, Sean and Hugh were turnin and burnin last night.

 

The highlight was finding a piece on Blackberry which came right out. I don't know why it was left, and normally I'd consider that bootie, but in an attempt to be less of an asshole, I'll return the piece if you identify it and the old, beat up biner. Otherwise Sean called dibs.

 

Thought I'd post it here since all the locals seem to be using this thread and don't normally read the lost and found thread.

Not EVERY Thursday, but seems like most of the time. Check in on this thread a day or 2 previous - like Wed., if you are thinking next Thurs (or any other specific day) is do-able for you.

bring the rope protectors, 3 tricycles, a midget in a clown suit and a sheep.

 

BTW, FYI, the used condoms scrounged on the ground didn't help at all last week, lets try and prepare eh?

 

If it's just you and me: Phylynx and the sandpaper 5.10 offwidth next to it?

Does someone want to walk me around Carver, showing some spots? I'd like to take my young daughter with me sometime but don't want to hunt around with her. Having a heads-up prior to going would be great.

 

I can provide wheels if needed.

Thanks,

NAT

Come along then John. Love your company and your upbeat attitude is always a happy addition to any outing I'm on, any time: tue @ 5:45pm tomorrow, like always, if you get there early head up and boulder some to stretch out so we can jump right on it and not pull tendons and muscles like some other old men. Damn it's nice to have people showing up and belaying and climbing.

 

Bryan, can't make it? We'll miss you. We'll do it later, you'll have to console yourself with dream of 1000' unclimbed granite. moon.gifgrin.gif

 

BTW, you dudes, my buddy Ujahn has some 3,000 foot unclimbed granite lines scoped out in Alaska if you're interested.

Nat, sorry, rarely head to Carver. Been years. No reason, but if I have a full day I head to Beacon or points beyond, if it's a partial day it's typically Butte or Broughtons.

Is your daughter like @ 10-12 years old or so? Maybe we could do something else which would equally get her psych on for climbing? But not tomorrow for me.

 

 

 

BTW, you dudes lose my phone number for those weekend trips? cry.gif

Nat,

I am in bozeman now, but if you park at the little church thing and walk up and around the gate you will find a trail. Go to the second wall ( the one w/o the big disclamer sign) On the second wall there is a slab that is good for TRin, I think that it is like 5.6 no matter which way. The slab will be to looker left of a striking overhanging finger crack. have fun good luck at getting them into it young. Wish my parents would have done the same. fruit.gif
