      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!

Single pitch trad climbing dumb?

Recommended Posts

Jens,

The offer of krazy klimb is legit, come down and get some.

 

Techno Jordan,

Just one of my many suprising finds, 20 feet from a trade route yelrotflmao.gif

It's not going anywhere, want to go out there this week?

Do you have bird beaks and a #5 cam?

I will start doing my situps again.

I hope Jens is joking. Some of the most beautiful and interesting climbs I have seen are single pitch trad. For those of you familiar with J-Tree, The Importance of Being Earnest and Coarse and Buggy are way sexier than any sport lines I have seen.

Nice troll.

 

What about sport climbing to a TR anchor that you can walk to? It seems if you put bolts below an easily accessible anchor you are needlessly defacing the rock, and artificialy limiting the number of possible lines/variations below the anchor.

Hey Lance are the pics in that area that requires a machette? I mean 20' from a trade route can be F'n brutal in the desert.

Situps are so fun...almost as much fun as climbing on an indoor wall.

I wanna come back. What is the work schedule looking like? I think seattle may actually flood away soon....

Save me.

your pal, Bwrts

I am not trying to rile anyone up but why is the skill level of trolls across this board so low?

Maybe it has to do with the way the pond is stocked. Why carefully tie your own flies when you can just stick some salmon eggs on a big ass hook and catch your limit? Anyone familiar with Jens' input around here over the years would see he's just stirring the pot to see what rises to the top.

 

And you know, folks respond in part because they're as bored as Jens is...

Enough daylight to get anything done....hmmmm.

SNevada Mtn Range blocking the sun early in the day...CHECK.

 

Maybe this spring when the sun cooperates I will fly down and join yah on the oak/manzanitta thrashing and crack hunting. Good luck with L Granite and family, they are a real pain in the buttocks. pitty.gif
