      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!

Music Video with Slesse NE Buttress

Recommended Posts

I made a small video of a climb of NE Buttress of Slesse Mountain, which three of us climbed earlier this month. The music is the song "Learning to Fly" by the Foo Fighters, it was a generally popular radio hit a few years ago.

 

The movie is 11 MB in size, with darn good picture quality (new compression software), and excellent sound. If you like scenes of climbing you might enjoy it. There is no talking or beta, although the footage is chronological, going from the bypass slabs, to the bivy ledge via the 5.9 pitch, then directly to the summit on day 2.

 

Perhaps this cheesy poster will entice you:

The movie is at:

For folks who did this climb, we hope the movie brings back some memories of good times! bigdrink.gif

Thanks for posting your video.

 

Tim and Jon take notice! The new board should embrace video as another medium beyond text and photos for doing trip reports. True, its a lot a disk space, but just something to think about.

Very cool Michael. I'm thinking, in reference to my little Snowfield report of today, that I should carry a video camera and some sort of odorama device to really capture the essence of the aftermath of Backpacker's Pantry Kung "Pow" Chicken. I just need our webmasters to adopt the John Waters' Odorama scratch and sniff system with sniff card (with but one noxious odor) as used in his 1981 cult film "Polyester."

 

For a musical score, perhaps the Captain and Tenille's "Muskrat Love." My soundtrack would go something like this: "Muskrat Susie and Muskrat Sam" POOOOOOOOH . . . Oh my fucking God that stinks . . . "makin' muskrat love in muskrat land" WHOMPPPP . . . Oh sweet Jesus not another!

 

You get the drift.

 

What do you think???

That was awesome... thx for sharing smile.gif

 

We're trying to put together a soundtrack to go with our 500+ photos from the Enchantments/Prusik trip. I may have to borrow that tune.

Thanks folks! It's Theron's video camera, just a small panasonic unit. We've been using it for over a year now, it can really take a beating. It definitely takes more time to get that footage, we have to thank Theron for making sure we do it.

 

John, I think your movie would become a cult hit, playing in damp, musty home theaters from Chiliwack to Government Camp. Certain lines and sound effects would enter the lexicon. Let's see it, for sweet Jesus' sake! tongue.gif

Wow, Michael, great job. Yesterday, I cranked out a *short* teaser trailer to the real thing which I still have to finish. In the spirit of your post, here's my tongue-in-cheek poster:

I hope you all enjoy it. Turn the sound way up. It's a soft classical track that gets loud at just the right times. There's also a little aerial suprise at the end. bigdrink.gif
