      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!

this has nothing to do w/ climb'n, kevbone - nothing! grin.gif

 

wanted to know if anyone heard what went down w/ a kid i saw on saturday on mt. hood. the hapless young pup apparently decided he needed to climb hood by his 18th birthday to make a man of himself (and here my generation thought a sloppy blow-job in the bushes by some homeless waif of nebulous gender would do the trick!) reckon his dad said he couldn't go, so the kid lied to him and went for a solo outing anyhow. by 4 a.m. as i was leaving the t-line lot the Forces of Good had assembled and were mobilizing to collar the absconded youth - i wanna know what happened when they got him back down to the lot! i saw no blood when i returned, but then many hours had passed since i still ain't figuring out that whole skiing on ice thing yet.

 

conditons on the s side are currently sporty - pearly gates are damn thin and demoralizing for those wielding a solitary axe and alum crampons - the mazama route is better, but very icy - tickled ye olde cockles to see two chaps take a spill and surf a good hundred feet or so down towards the fumorale - i thought i was the only dumbass who did that kinda crap!

I was bivied Fri nite on the route just above the Palmer lift, he must have walked past us on the way but we never saw him. Probably I was still too pissed about watching my Mt Hrdwre Trango 3.1 tent go flying off in the foggy darkness en route to the White River. Heard that the kid made it up to the Gates and was wondering if he made it all the way. At least the expected punishment would have been worth it ?

jay-sus! you catch up w/ it or just end up sleeping in your bag in the snow? rather expensive bunch of nylon to go flitting off into the beyond - you must not have ordered the fattest person in your party inside as an anchor first?

 

the kid didn't top out - got sketched just above the schrund i think 'fore the pmr folks got to him - saw him being escorted down when i was in the devils kitchen area (quite calm that day) - i just wanted an insight into the parking lot scene, my spidey-sense said it had the potential of being damned amusing.

PMR used to have a report on their main page within a day or so of any mission they were called out on. But I haven't seen one for months. Those were always helpful to get the first-hand account of what really happened as opposed to most media reports.
