      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'm not a climber, so I can't tell you when I started climbing. But I can tell you when I stopped being a climber.

 

As of September 5, 2003, I no longer climbed 3 days per week. frown.gifcry.gifcry.gif

I was squeezed out of my mom in 1977. Don't think that counts though.

 

My history is not so impressive. Started climbing in 94, first peak in 2002.

1995-Castlewood Canyon State Park, Colorado.

Danny Parker and I would have our moms drop us off in the canyon on weekends and afternoons, where we learned the ropes.

At first, we were repellers...but slowely that gave way to climbing in our tennies. As such, we went from rapping off blue tubular webbing, that we would buy by the 100' segment, to an actual 60 meter dry bluewater rope hellno3d.gif

After the first few years, our figure 8's became warn through, from the water falls we would descend and ascend, the cliffs we would squirm up, and the falls we would take.

It was great adventure down there in castlewood canyon bigdrink.gif
