      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 brought my shoes (and harness) to work today thinking I might be able to run up to the butte and get a bouldering pump apre work.

 

Anyone going to be on the cliffs doing laps or need a spotter? Let me know. Today or Thus may be the last good outside day. I might be good for the same thing Thus. Gets dark like @ 6:30, so I was wanting to be on rock by 5 or so.

I can't make it tonight, but does anyone want to get some evening/night time drytooling time in at Rocky Butte? I'm game any night but Tues and Thurs. C'mon you internet trolls, get some fresh air.

I'm down, PM me if you want to head out. Almost any night but wed nights are good, as wed. are usually when I leave my bridge in search of stray cats or wounded childen :)...

Can anyone make it out to RB tomorrow a.m.? I'll be rope soloing around the Blackberry area 10-11ish. White helmet, foul language.

I'm on Wassail no. 4 tonight so maybe an afternoon climb is advisable. Meet you there at 5ish Bill. I'll be there a little before if anyone else wants to join, say 3 o'clock for a few burns in the Breakfast area.

You give good belay? (mine is the top notch!)

I'll have my gri, so you can hang all afternoon, if that's what you mean by good belay. And Bill, everyone on this site, I mean everyone, knows yours is top notch. It's hard to keep things like that quiet when they're posted on the bathroom stall (ie climber's board).

Nice lapping with ya Jim. Wish I'd run into you earlier in the year. I think I got to the Butte 5 times this year (exclusive of bouldering)- that was real nice.

 

Now the rest of you ladies.....and you know who you are, NOT JH who was in the cardiac unit, NOT Kyle who's taking some recovery time, and not Ivan who's been lapping beacon daily it seems....the rest of you ladies need to get out some more!

Good times for sure, Bill. Thanks for the Birds of Paradise clinic. Definitely a nice evening outside and just in time judging by this morning's wet streets.

Sat (11/1) around 10 am I'll be out at RB. Come one, come all. Rain or shine.

 

It's the first part of the second part that troubles me......I was thinking if I had to go climbing Saturday:, Beacon, via aid, in the rain, is as good as it gets if you dress warm. Next would be digging dirt off at the Far Side. Or hiking up to Jimmys and doing the combo shooting the Noveske or the 9's/drinking water fill-up from the artesian well there and sawing the downfall timber from last year.

 

Should have done some bouldering then laps with young Jim yesterday up there after work....ahhh sublime! And warm yet!

 

Rocky Butte in the wet sucks. Short routes, no sun....condoms...blah blah

 

Got to pass on that.

You just aren't trying hard enough. The rain at least shifted all the broken glass around so it wasn't where I remembered it.

Hey, I'm relatively new to PDX and never been to Rocky Butte. Although, I've heard about it...

 

Anyways, I can deal with broken glass and bad rock if it means dry tooling in town! What's the story?

Dont be a dumbfuck. What do you think? Of course it does. That's why we developed our own routes that werent preexisting rock climbs.
