      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!

Your definition of bouldering on the site is way too long. To broaden the appeal, you should use AskMen.com's definition:

 

Bouldering: This method consists of climbing small boulders without any equipment. Basically, it's like hiking with some obstacles thrown in.

 

It's much easier for the layperson to understand.

I think that it is safe to say at this point that everyone (excluding Gary Rall) will be very happy with our rate structure. This gym is for all of you, not the hardcores only, not the newbies only, not just the kids- anyone that likes climbing, likes what it does for you, and likes the social interaction of the sport. Come see for yourself. $5 day passes the first month we're open.

I've heard there was a "plumbing issue" and the place was flooded. Carpet & padding have to be replaced, etc. 3rd hand info.

 

Maybe thecircuit can chime in with a revised opening date and/or details.

i can't believe there is a gym for just bouldering... normal climbing gyms are dull enough as is but at least you can get a little air under your feet. 10 minutes of bouldering and I'm ready to cry.gif from the lameness of it. Can't imagine paying for it. Of course, I used to say that about hookers, too...

from the pics on the site, the gym looks pretty big, short but lots of square footage

Ah, perhaps this ties in with the previous word on the street that a certain enthusiastic new gym owner proceeded with his new construction, plumbing, and electrical without jumping through that small but pesky hoop known as "getting a building permit." blush.gif

 

Hoo nose?

PRG tried a bouldering gym in the Pearl a few years back. Probably a concept in that area that would do well now but not back then.

the walls look cool. the only thing i don't like about gym bouldering is that there is not much opportunity to cruise some moderate climbs. too much cranking all the time starts to hurt. if i were to make a bouldering gym it would inlcude some easier traverse/warm up areas. also newbies are a big part of making $ so they need someplace to climb.

 

Also what is up with the website, why not put a picture of the gym on the front page instead of all the cheesy graphics.

To dispell any false rumors-

 

we didn't get a permit for the climbing walls until after they were built, we were under the impression that the walls did not need to be permitted. I have built climbing walls all over the place and this was the very first permit I had to get for wall construction. Portland is very unique in this regard. Everything else was done in the right manner (permits, etc.), but one of the drywallers knocked off a sprinkler head and caused a bit of a flood, and we will be ready to open once the restoration crew replaces the flooring.

 

Look, there is a great crew of people busting themselves to bring something good to the scene. But big projects always seem to have a few hitches. I am sorry we have taken so long, I hope when we are open it will seem like it was worth it to alot of you. In the mean time, stop by for a look, we take time for everyone that walks through the door.

 

Lastly, we are working on a new website model now- but really, would you rather have me focus on a really flashy web site or getting the gym done? Thanks for your patience everyone!

of course, it could be referring to the number of asses as well. We could be talking pure surface area here.

 

pi*(r^2)*n (where n = available asses).

 

a bit more of an ecological distribution and abundance equation.

dry-tooling in a gym dedicated to bouldering? can anyone top that? I suppose if it was in Boulder and everyone had to wear orange-tinted sunglasses w/ bd visors. oh and red bull flowed from the drinking fountain.
