      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!

Is it out? I think they should seriuosly consider changing the rating of spiderman from a 3 pitch 5.7 to a one pitch 5.6c/d.

 

Also, that crack at the begining of the west face of monkey face is misgraded. (The real west face)

 

I think it felt much more like C1+ than 5.11.

 

I mean seriuosly, who rated that shit? Is it too late to change it?

 

Oh ya, to whoever is making the new book. Make sure you still call the west face variation the 13a variation. I love telling girls in the parking lot i climbed the 13a on monkey face.

 

Oh ya, and to all the people who sit at morning glory wall with down coats on in the summer heat while their dog chews on my rope, wtf? I dont hate you, your probably a good person, but i just dont understand.

 

 

Thanks for listening

I heard that Alans computer crashed with all the info in it! Don't know if it's just talk, but that is what I heard and that he had had it, and threw in the towel on the guide. The new cover looks nice. Does anyone actually have a copy of one?

I sent Alan an e-mail to ask the man himself. He said that he had been working full time on the book for the past four months and he will need another two months to finish the intro chapter, take photo's, and draw some maps. He said the book was done other than that. I also sent him a copy of the picture of the front cover that "Camilo" posted. He said that wasn't his photo for his guide book. It looks like the new Smith Guide Book is still two months away according to Alan.

Curses! madgo_ron.gif

I guess that means the copy I bought from Dru was just the original with a fake cover. You bastard!

is one of those on the mudpile? if not where are they? who are you climbing these with?

 

you should contact me sometime when you visit this side of the cascades. i'm currently working on some routes out there as well. maybe we could partner up for the long walk. i'm mostly into free climbing though.

Not to mention, that chuffer is trad climbing. How gauche. hellno3d.gif

 

He's not trad climbing. That would be anathema for the cover of the Smith Guide! He's on Pouches over in the 'sups. But WHO is that on the cover? I WONDER if he posts on the .com?
