      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!

Hey Charles- I was on the FS Hotshot crew that cleared the footprints for all of the structures there at the ELC. Havent been back since, how are things going up there? Everytime I go over the pass, I think about stopping, but Im usually in a bit of a hurry.

I'm not too sure about Seattle. Timmy called me and asked if I could get the word out in the NW.

I just found out there will be a Seattle show. I don't have a date or time yet. You could call the Patagonia Store and ask them. I'll post it when I get the word on that show.

Oh shit... my bad... I thought it was at US Outdoor as AFIVE posted it.

 

If it is at Patagonia I say we prefunk at Rogue Ales Public House on Flanders St (same street as the Pearl REI) unless some can think of a venue closer to Patagonia... anybody? The Rogue ale house is only like 5 minutes away...

Service and food sucks at Rogue. Bridgeport isn't too far away; Rock Bottom is in the general vicinity, and so is the Tugboat. Anywhere but the Rogue; too bad, because I like their beer. Their waitpersons can suck my ass. the_finger.gif

 

Now, there's a first. Me complaining about a brewpub. cantfocus.gif

I think you're right - there's gonna be a lot of people there.

So this may be imporant - I saw this on one of the flyers: "Seating is limited, so please bring your own chairs".

Seattle show:

 

he Timmy O’Neill Tour: back to Events

DATE: Tuesday, November 8, 7 pm

Timmy O'Neill is one of the world's funniest, most irreverent and insightful climbing presenters. He has climbed in many remote ranges, completing first ascents from Greenland to Patagonia. Timmy also partners with leading amputee and spinal injury athletes, both as climbing partner and technology developer. "Seeing my friends overcome their disabilities and achieve the seemingly impossible feeds my soul, forces me to reach even further!" he says.

 

Join Timmy for an evening of humor and poignancy as he recounts stories from his latest trip up El Capitan, climbing 3,000 feet of granite with his paraplegic brother Sean. Also be prepared for some short films.

This event is free. Light refreshments will be served. For more info, phone Patagonia at 206-622-9700.

 

I'll be there with my runt tomorrow. rockband.gif

Does this mean they will turn people away or you will just have to stand if you are late...?

Well- can't speak about the show but the highlight of the evening for me was drinking some beers with the tribe at Low Brow. Approx 23-24 folks crowded in pre-funk pre-Timmy and tried to talk over the noise. Nice.

 

Met lots of new folks and some old ones too. Nice.

 

Anywho, being American with a short attention span, I bogued out early when the show handn't started at 7:02pm and I realized I rather be with my family so I tooted out.

 

To those who said hi, it was great to meet some of you- although I'm unsure what peoples online personas are since you all had different names and seemed real nice in person. Lets get out some time. I'd like to thank everyone for not kicking my ass for some offhand remark I probably made years earlier which should have offended you.

 

Jimmy O was there and was discussing a get together of the tribe, so if anyone knows Jim, or you climb at Beacon (thinking Mike Layton and Marcus both no-shows (?) at the show), give him a jingle to get the info, or Joseph as well - I'll be out of the country with Ujahn in Red Rocks so I won't be there.

 

Thanks again for the beer Johnny!

I really really wanted to go, but I study all the time so I have my weekends free. Glad you guys had fun, and maybe we can have another pre-thanksgiving pub club when I don't have midterms. I bet it was a good time!

Bill- it was nice to meet you in person, and to match some faces with cc.com avatars. We'll have to do that again sometime.

 

Tim was really nice, as I talked to him after the show, and the slideshow was great; very entertaining. Come back to P-town sometime, Timmy! bigdrink.gif
