      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!

Three daring souls set out on an adveture last saterday... before I go on.... last week I travel around town asking any one if they had ever climb a list of unnamed outcrops along hyway 58; to my suprize everyone seemed to not even notice the 200-300ft. towers that sit on the ridge line along hyway 58, or if they had never had been up to them, maybe it is because you have to ford a river, then climb a steep (40 degrees) or so slope to get to them... anyways, three of us set out at 8:00am drove east from Eugene into the cascades, to a little town I like to call cokeridge... [laf] ... we made our jurney to the rock known as BABY ROCK ... don't be fouled by the name this rock is no baby.... we hiked to the saddle between the rock and the ridge, and eat a nice lunch... then climbed and climbed and climbed... now because I didn't here of any one climbing tis paticular rock before, I might have to clame first accent on our routs... My fried and climbing partner doug, climbed a 5.10 face climb with a 5.10d crux at the top; now known as falcons flight, he got on sight as well... I on the other hand did not get on sight, as I fell on my first try at Jack of all trades, a 5.9 face followed by a 5.10 finger crack, followed by a narrow 5.6 chimmney, fell on the finger crack... and our therd partner did an easy 5.6 hand crack... we also did another chimny up and out over to the left of falcons flight... and just to cool down before our hike to the top of heckeltooth mountain, we did some bouldering on some small towers within the visinety... the view from the top of the mountain was great; a picture perfact view of Dimond peak... all and all the trip was great, I was thankfull for the 12 pack of beer waiting at the truck for us...

There are no new routes in the Cascades. Fried Bakey climbed all those routes with 5 pitons and a tied off pebble back in 1954.

'55 was the first year for the Thunderbird.

The 1954 Thunderbird was a 650cc roadbike built by Triumph. Marlon Brando rode one in the "Wild Bunch"

Yes, yes, clever boy.

 

And I'm sure you're proud of that '54 Thunderbird in your wine cellar, too.

What ever... I just mean if it's in his book then where can i get it so i can see for myself witch routs he climbed... if not I'm just assuming that he might as well have fallen on those bill balls and riped them off...

Maybe Fried Bakey did not use a rope and free soloed it. Then finding it's horrible rock opted to leave it unpublished [Confused]

Dude, No one knows where you are talking about.. Thats the beauty of your position. You can B.S. and no one can realy call you on it. All I know is that every time i hike arround thinking I might want to climb something it ends up being CHOSS. Maybe you should write a guide book or SOMETHING. I can suggest an editor... [Razz]

I just may do that... Two points

 

1) If there is a trail, how can you think it is a FA?

 

2) No Ovaries... Hysterectomy last year [Wink]

Translation: Ah, yes. I can see that my assumption was ill-conceived and that there could have been a '54 Thunderbird flattened by that large, dislodged boulder. However, I am going to make a lame attempt to defray the embarassment I feel by making another ill-conceived assumption about the drink of choice of the person who so pointedly rejected my original assumption.
