      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!

Mountaineers in Leavenworth - April 22 & 23

The evidence all indicates that climbing R&D is as dangerous as alpine climbing if not more so.

He's lucky he's not a regular here

OK...I was just told a story by a woman who, about 10 years ago was in her early 20s, and joined the Seattle Mounties. She said the group she was in was almost totally comprised of guys in their 50s. Apparently they were on a hike, and had to cross a stream, and the leader of the hike elected to take off his pants and his underwear for the crossing. He was the only one in the group to do this, and everyone thought it was pretty odd.

 

I wonder if it was this guy:

Ok - ok- I'm busted. Whatever.

 

My underpants were cotton, so taking them off was completely justified; if they'd gotten wet, I COULD HAVE DIED!!!

 

 

Btw, could you pm me her phone #?

If the water was waist deep or higher, I'd say Mr. "odd" Leader was right to take his pants off -- and all those sensitive types should simply have averted their eyes.

I'm a little late to this fight but what the fuck.

 

First off whether what Peter says is right or wrong I know he likes to argue, so I have a jaundiced view of his statements.

 

Secondly Matt is a lawyer, which means he has an advanced degree in twisting the english language to suit his purposes and up his billable time.

 

CC.com a club? I'm not sure what the fuck a club is, but if I were to guess a club is something you decide to call a club. This ain't no club.

 

All cc.com is is a bulitin board where people read and sometimes make posts. Sometimes the people get together and climb or drink beer or both. Anyone can post, so there are Mounties posting, Boealps posting, and WAC's too. There are also a lot of people who just climb.

 

Some of you people get really worked up by the word, "Accident." Let me tell you that accidents happen. If you drive a car you are very likely to get in an accident at some point. If you get in a lot of accidents well maybe you should change your driving style, but it ain't the fault of the driving club you belong to. There are a lot of accidents in the business I'm in because it's dangerous (duh) well climbing is dangerous too. If it's like the business I'm then statisticaly you are likely to get hurt in the 1st year as you're learning and there's another spike of people who have worked for 7 years. Basically when you learn to do something dangerous getting hurt is part of learning and after you've become comfortable doing something you are prone to get sloppy.

 

Anyway accidents happen and wringing your hand saying it's because of the group you hang out with is fucking retarded.

 

Speaking of retarded Mounies are retarded; not because they get in a lot of accidents, but because they cary too much into the bc, wear silly cloths, and have, "Assistant First Aid Leaders."

 

note: just to be honest I was a mountie when I was 14, but I dropped out of the intermediate class at 16 and haven't looked back.

If you rap of the end of your ropes, you are in good company. Some very, very good climbers have died that way. A friend of mine likes to have the first person tie into the ends of both strands and be lowered. Then the second rappels.

 

That way no problems with: 1) uneven ropes, 2) tangled or hung-up ropes or caught by the wind, 3) not reaching the next station.

Yeah, right. Not basic. Not many people do it at all, even though it frequently makes a lot of sense. I wish I had used that tactic on Dark Rhythm. It would have saved a lot of time.
