      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

Next session will be Tuesday May 17th 3:30ish – pump. Call me if you are coming... 541.231.2062. Holla!

 

Also: is anyone interested in starting a weekly rock climbing night? Sport, trad, aid, drytool... I don't care... I'm just looking for some consistent weekly climbers. Give me a shout if you are interested!

Nolse, now that I've met you in person, lets talk. What does "pump" mean? If I was in PDX, I would definitely check it out.

Perhaps it is an age thing (specifically my lack of) but my understanding of the term “pump” when used to describe a climbing induced condition is a state when one has reached muscle failure and “pumped out” due to a build up of lactic acid in the forearms. Synonyms include “flame” or “flamed out”, “gripped” or “gripped out”, and so on. And I said my understanding because chances are I am wrong!

 

It was my impression that the term “pump” was as commonplace in a climber’s vocabulary as “beta"… perhaps I was mistaken or... perhaps this is you baiting me yet again… you are the only individual I know that precluded their formal introduction with the phrase “you might want to hit me”…

 

If you truly are interested you and the SEA kids should organize some type of climb (sport, trad, aid, dtool) night… based on the turnout you get for weekly pub clubs I don’t see why you wouldn’t see a lot of interest. This is a climbing board with a drinking problem... not a drinking board with a climbing problem... right? wave.gif

yellaf.gif I was serious. I've heard of "pump" in terms of "gripped", but not in the context you were using it.

 

As you can see from the SEA pubclub thread, organizing anything with this group is like herding cats.

We climb until we are too pumped too (or if Ivan hits himself in the head with his adze hahaha.gifyellaf.gifpitty.gif).

 

Start something... only the truly interested people (the type of people you want to climb with anyways) will attend and the rest of the cats can sit at home and spray wave.gif.
