      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!

It was about 30m off to the right in the open meadow that you cross after the climbers trail forks to the right. About 15 minutes up the ridge from the good camping area in the trees that we didn't find until after we set up the tent.

 

It was small but we all climbed it a bunch of times so it was almost like climbing a long route

By the way Fence shitter, oh, I mean Fence sitter, yes, I was carring a 75 liter pack. I guess I don't feel the need to boast and show off how little I can carry. By the way, why didn't you summit????? Was your 20lb pack missing some key elements?

I carry what I need. A single wall tent, stove, pot, food, booze, clothes and a synthetic sleeping bag, as I am allergic to down. And, I have a dog whom I carry some stuff that she cannot carry on her meager pack.

 

Now, if I was tenting with someone, maybe we would have shared the weight of a tent, and cooking gear. Never the less, I find it odd that one needs to put down another because they are different or, don't follow everyone else in the go lite theory. I would love to carry less, if I had lots of money, I would upgrade everything to the lightest I could. But, as it now stands, my folks have all the dough, and I make do as I do. At least I am out there making the best of it.

 

This cyber world can be a cold and cruel place to look for recognition. As always, one must look inside themselves for the accomplishments we gain, and not subject ourselves to public ridicule, as it seems the primary source of recognition given in this cyber world.

 

As I was taught long, long ago...if you have nothing nice to say, its best to say nothing at all.

 

Have you ever wondered which hurts most? Saying something and wishing you had not...

Or, saying nothing and wishing you had.

 

Celebrate differences in those around you, or, you will fall victim to medeocrity and self rightousness!!

I see, not only is R&D route grade III, but Outer Space is Grade IV and there's a new mountain in Squamish called Big Chief! That Ultimate Everything on it must be Grade VII
AT LEAST!

When did they up the rating to 5.9+ on outer space [Roll Eyes] Next thing you know Classic Crack will be 5.10 [laf]

Hey Rodeo,

When you get your pics developed, please share them. I guess you and I were not in their roll of film, or, we were not worthy of posting. Either way, I would like to see how your pics turned out. You don't need to post them for wankers, just share them at a pub club or stop in.

 


I was belaying you two, Hands on rope, not on camera. I have one of Rodeo lowering, and there may be one of lisa. Ran out of time yesterday, as I have to scan them into Photoshop and upload and shit. I'll bring them tonight.
