      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!

Well, move it away from music a bit then, what other world-famous climbing area has a route called Pretty Vacant (hint, routes called Furry Pink and Rock The Casbah are located in the same area) confused.gif

I heard a story that it was called library ledge because a porno magazine was left there stashed behind a flake. True?

Sonic Reducer: Pearl Jam (Dead Boys cover)

Pretty Vacant: Sex Pistols

Terminal Preppy: Dead Kennedys

Amazing what you can get accomplished with a search engine, and a little free time at work.

as long as we're on index trivia, anyone know who Walter B. is and why we're apologizing to him?

Chief Pig Rigger: Big John. At least he did most of the public relations regarding pig rigging. The tradition stoped when Fred Grafton threatened to punch him.

I should add that it was Fred who first discovered a supply of hog's heads

I think that "two-faced piece of shit" did most of the rigging, while BJ basked in glory of blame. These two were definetly in the Glimmer twins mold. But Joe also played an important role.

How did we do ScottP?

On to Walter B. When Dan Lepeska placed that bolt (twenty years ago), it was actually a big deal - rapp bolts. Thence the name, because he felt Walter Bonatti was the epitome of climbing purity.

My source said Fred threatened to punch out the lights of a guy named "Shop Boy". Is this Big John? (He didn't divulge Shop Boy's true identity.)

Shop Boy gets only 1/2 credit. BJ and his buddy the rat were the prime movers behind the pig. Ditto Crazyjz don't listen to Al

It wasn't Al.

BTW, for another $200.00 and what's behind the curtain, who did the first ascent of Princely Ambitions after the block fell off?

Mike Massey. I'll take the $200, but I don't want what's behind the curtain, I'm pretty sure.

It wasn't Mike Massey, unless he missed crucial holds and bypassed obvious gear placements (the latter possibly being the case if Mike's reputation is what I hear it is.).
