      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!

Ah Mike's just avoiding the one route he fears...the one he hears calling to him in the night..whispering his name....the Bobcat Cringe....which is itself merely a warmup for the greatest unclimbed crack in Washington.... Bobcat Reality!

A couple years ago Mike and I found a Bavarian Reality in Leavenworth. Doubt its been climbed either.

 

I just tried a Spanish Reality this past weekend. Good thing is that its only a roof "boulder" reality problem.

wow...that would have been something to watch!!! Was the gear pre-placed? <never mind, read Rumrs post above>

 

Awesome. Wish I could have watched it in a lawn chair drinking a beer.

mike only rehearsed on tr about 20 times or so, never was able to do it clean. fired it 1st go last thursday. there are pics but mike is now a corperate whore so you all will have to wait to see them.

 

i was not there to see it either.

 

darryl, mike wished he didnt have to go to the valley or to pakistan this summer so he could stay at index...what a rough life. i would say look for him back at index this fall to crush.
