      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!

Red Beckey?

Recommended Posts

It's a holy book. Gospel according to Fred.

 

"And I say unto thee, only those who find the obvious gully can approach my shrine."

 

But I agree, it does sound like a potential microbrew...

The 23rd Psalm, Northwest Climber's Edition

 

The Random and Omnipotent Goddess of Northwest Weather is my Shepard; I shall want.

She maketh me to become soaked to the bone in green slide-alder thickets:

She leadeth me onto the slick-as-snot log crossing the raging waters.

She taxeth every fiber of my soul:

She leadeth me unto the way-paths of Beckey and I take His name in vain.

 

Yea, though the approach seemeth like a walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil devil's club: For thy Goretex art with me;

Thy trekking poles and thy cortisone creme, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a sucker-hole in the tempest storm for me in the presence of mine friends;

Thou annointest my head with rain, ice, and rock fall; My courage runneth away.

 

Surely Fred's "obvious gullies" and "easy 4th class terrain" shall beckon me for all the days of my life,

and I will dwell in the House of the Cascades forever.
