      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!

Outer Space Cluster F....

What's missing from this whole "discussion" is BIG LOU.

Had he been there, he would have soloed the route up to the slow party, attached their rope to his sturdy belt loops, and hauled their sorry butts to the top. And for you nervous folks who got stuck behind all of this...BIG LOU would have safely guided you back to the parking lot where you could pose for pictures and have a hearty handshake. All would walk away with feeling good about themselves with a few lessons learned.

Some of the lessons learned:

* First come, first served. "Late start" on a weekend on Outer Space? Please....

*Carry one of those little Petzl headlamps in your pocket or wherever and you'll probably have an easier time getting down in the dark.

*Lots of routes on a big piece of stone like Snow Creek..if you smell an epic looming above, there are a dozen interesting routes nearby that would enjoy your company.

Question: "BIG LOU...where were you when they needed you?" Probable answer: "Bigger fish to fry on bigger mountains."

The Fact Remains:

BIG LOU

GOT BETTER THINGS

TO DO

THAN RESCUE

YOU!

 

Don't make him come and get you!

 

'xactly!

The slow party (let me clarify who I'm writing about - not your group Eric B - although you were incredibly slow as well) should thank Samco. He talked me out of beating the shit out of the two of you up top. As for you Eric B, you and Brian should stick to the Tooth or Ingalls Peak.

 

Lets not justify why its ok to climb Outer Space in 11+ hours. Its not ok. bigdrink.gif

 

This is pure crap. I don't think such slap-dickery should be displayed on any route. I certainly don't think a blow-hard jackass should threaten an ass-whuppin on the internet.

 

Maybe YOU were lucky that you didn't try to beat someone's ass.

I didn't blame my epic there on anyone else. That's where the first poster of this thread has gone wrong. It's their own damn fault they didn't bring a headlamp, so they need to suck it up, take some responsibility for their actions, and not blame the slow people in front of them.

Wow, hawkeye69, in just your first four posts, you've managed quite a bit of vitriol, plenty of misspelled cusswords, and a subtle chestbeat of climbing the Salathe in a day. Congratulations, you'll fit in here just fine.

So many dimensions to the lameness here. To restate some other points and make a few of my own:

 

1. OS on a Saturday. Get there first or expect crowds, and either be prepared to wait, be prepared with the basic social skills necessary to engage the slower party and work out a plan for passing them, or climb elsewhere. With respect to basic social skills - I've passed other parties and have been passed. Whenever I've seen this situation coming, I've always been able to either look up at the belayer and say something along the lines of "Hey - looks like we're moving at different paces and I know it sucks to have someone on your tail all day, would you be cool with us climbing through at the next ledge?" and I've never had a problem. I really dislike feeling pressured to move faster by another party, so whenever a group is clearly moving faster, I let them know that I am aware of the fact that they are faster and talk the situation over, and have never had a problem - even when I've asked if they'd mind waiting a bit until we got someplace where the process would be easier for both parties.

 

Failing to do any of these things and then opening up with a bunch of hostility and insults on the internet is the ultimate in lameness, but if you haven't got the common sense required to make the right decisions at the base of a crowded route, or the common courtesy necessary to interact with other humans in a constructive way when you are on the route, I suppose that I shouldn't be surprised by the retro-spray.

I also think that if people were honest about their experiences and emotions, quite a few of the TR's here would read quite a bit differently. There's clearly an editing process that goes on in people's heads in order to ensure that they don't expose too much of themselves and leave themselves vulnerable. That's certainly understandable, but I really think it's a shame, as the experiences that people have are way more interesting, varied, and genuine than the subtle-chestbeat-with-just-a-touch-of-faux-modesty-and-self-referential-irony that's emerged as the default tone for any TR here.

jayb,

you got it right there.

 

garyY, when the clueless are calling out the clueless, entropy sets in...

 

Hawkeye69, first of all, I don't think you're a lurker. I think you're yet another avatar of some tool whom I've already ignored. It's up to you to prove me otherwise.

 

Second, why the hell do you need to jump in on the "pick on gary" game? I'm sick and tired of it. Your attacks are tangential and unprovoked. It seems every time I decide to give this forum another chance, another jackass avatar has to step up to the plate to hassle me.

yellaf.gif such a connaisseur of the TR! do you have a computer or a snifter over there JayB

 

I thoroughly agree. It's a shame that anyone has to justify their actions when they didn't really do much wrong.

 

What I wanna know is anyone going to attempt OS during the rope-up...could be entertaining

Everyone should join ropes and climb OS together at the ropeup in one giant clusterfuck-chain. If you get enough people, you could run the ropes together in a loop from top to bottom and make a frickin' conveyor belt. CBS, start calculating how much rope we need.
