      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 was actually a bit impressed with the article. It was not the usual dribble about extreme sports, pushing it to the limit, andrenaline junky crap, etc...

Just think, now for societal cost we can always tell people, well, our other option is to be criminals or junkies! They cost the tax payer way more than climbing rescues! As climbers we support the entire outdoor industry instead of stealing peoples mail and commiting identity theft!!

Excellent point! We are the ones who would have otherwise become criminals had we not been "socialized differenetly" into becoming climbers.

"Generally, the high-sensation-seeking types fall into four broad categorizations. Some fill more than one: thrill and adventure seeking; experience seeking (non-conformity or impulsiveness, for example); disinhibition seeking (such as multiple sex partners, drugs or drinking); and boredom susceptibility."

I think that should serve as a reasonable justification for the government actually sponsoring my climbing need. Much like a methadone clinic, there could be a government store where Icould display my certified adrenaline junky card and have fresh gear issued to me whenever I want.

 

Yeah, I like that idea fruit.gif

Did I misread, or did that article suggest that elite climbers have a fondness for group sex? yellaf.gif

Should this be combined with the bad date thread?

For the record, I would like to add that I have NEVER had group sex.

Maybe I've just been too eager. confused.gif

"Freedom of the Hills:" THE LOST CHAPTERS.

 

Rumored to have been written by Beckey during a 1960's era physchodelic induced climbing trip to India, heavily inspired by the Kama Sutra and other ancient east indian tantric sex mystics.

... Hidden somewhere deep in the North Cascades, next to a horsecock shaped rock.
