      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!

Mt Olympus in a day

Recommended Posts

It would be an epic marathon... Don't forget to go swimming in the lake at the beginning of the uphill before glacier meadows. You would really be missing out on something refreshing.

Well, the date is August 18th. Terminal, shoot me an e-mail and we'll talk.

So I guess I'm getting in touch with my inner being now?

Why? Because I think I can. I like Voight in Runaway Train, some quote about you not knowing what you can and what you can't do. Right before he flies like a little tweety bird...

And what the hell is a chronic gumby?


Yeah, it'll be lots of pain, I'm no marathon runner. But I figure if we do 2-3mph, in seven or eight hours we'll hit the glacier. The blue pill is Aleve, magical stuff. I too heard about some dude doing it in 16 hours... wow. I'll save my jogging for the exit. Now my partners, why they could probably jog the whole thing...

No bikes, not too ethical. And since it's my only mode of transpo nowadays, short the Nike express, I don't need anyone taking the monkey wrench to it. [Wink]
