      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!

Specifically cliff jumping at Whatcom Falls in bellingham.

jesus, given my tyranical derangement at the time, that was by far the closest i came to killing meself this summer!!! the view of the drug-deal going well in the middle of the forest on the way in and the tubby cannon-balling chicanas cliffside were priceless too...

I started sport climbing (just a little bit after work while the weather was still good).

Decided to lead a bolted climb that has a tough little crux in a not-so-good spot. Fell on lead. Immediately tried again. Fell again. Tried again. Fell. Tried. felltriedfelltried.

And finally, lost my fear of falling while leading a funky little sport climb.

beta-decay, dear sky? is this the phenonoma i've experienced where the useless crap people screech at me while thruching upward gradually fades into the background noise of wind/trains/heavy breathing and blood-curdling yelps?

Went to the Bugaboos (finally) and the Pickets in the same week.

 

Pickets included an awesome (and humbling) climb of Inspiration Peak, 21 hours tent to tent, christ...

I think you all know what my answer is.

 

I will not draw any more attention to it.

The pink tape V2? laugh.gif

 

Nah, didn't send it yet, saving that for next year.

 

2 weeks in Yosemite. I'm easy that way.

 

Fantasic group of folks, great weather, best rock in the universe. I was healthy, feeling the magic and my climbing starting to come back together.

P.S. seeing my wife "suck it up" and slog up to summit Adams was somewhat emotional for me. I was so damned proud of her!

Wasn't particularly challenging but I had a fantastic jaunt up Sahalee in Sept. Blue Bird skies and a nice mellow pace! Was just lots of fun.

 

on rock it would have to be Zebra Zion this spring, that top pitch f-in rockband.gif and Kunza this fall, never been quite so committed to small gear, and bumped me up anothe grade fruit.gif All in all a very good year seeing as i've been a lazy ass and haven't really been training like I should.
