      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!

sport vs. trad?

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for areas/routes? I usually climb at Smith and have followed what I was told was a 5.8-5.9.

 

What about priorities when purchasing pro?

Mostly... it's the size of the cahones it takes to do it. Hard sport climbing is hard. Hard trad climbing is hard and and f-ing scary grin.gif

Man its like the difference between penthouse and swank. You know what youre gonna get from a sport route, but you might run into some nasty shit on a trad route.

And then boldering would be free mpegs of hardcore porn. Like the BangBus. Swear to god man, I think that shit would work in Spokane. Roll around East Sprague with a wad of ones and a couple fifties on the outside, see who's game.

 

Maybe Norman Johnson's sister?

Sportclimbing is Neither for one. Yes, not a sport and not climbing.

Trad is about adventure, risk and independance.

Sport is about climb by numbers, stay on route, minimize risk and weight.
