      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!

Layton you suck. Pete said he had you locked up in the gimp suit.

 

Everyone else that showed up rocks. Thanks! Great evening. Raised a lot of $$ for the cause and saw some excellent films.

i was talking to a non-climber after the show, who was asking me if The Optimist (the beth & tommy show) was a spoof or not.

 

lay-person stranger: "so . . .you go out and try to climb the same piece of rock over and over for 6 weeks until you get up???"

 

lame-ass climber (yours truly): "er . . . well, 'ya see, those were PROFESSIONAL climbers, they really don't have much else to do but climb, see."

 

lady "so, that's what REAL climbers do, then?"

 

me (not wanting at all to start the trad ethic vs. stick-clip argument that's currently raging in my head) "well, i guess if you want to climb something that ridiculously hard it takes a lot of practice"

 

lady "Well, if they're professionals, why does she need to practice for 6 WEEKS just to climb that one run?!?!?!"

 

me (eyes darting around for some back-up, starting to feel a little uncomfortable) "duhhhhhhh . . . ya see, the moves are very technical, and you need to . . um . . .conserve energy . . and . . ."

 

perturbed lady "well, it sure as hell doesn't look like any fun to me!"

 

me (finally able to agree) "no, you sure won't ever find me spending a month an a half working a proj like that"

 

lady "you people are WHACKO!!! What's wrong with you?!?!?"

 

me "yeah - thanks. have a nice night."

 

Now, to be fair, i'm sure she could talk circles around me regarding the situation in Kashmir, but why must she ask me what was wrong with me?! I was trying my best to help her understand . . . confused.gif
