      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!

Kevin, can you just not help yourself? Having a bad day on the planet, or is it just a matter of impulse control after so much time in spray? You should be out there climbing on a morning like this one...

and quit talking about beacon here. It's going to be packed there next week just because of this.

 

Uhh, doubtful, I heard GI Joes was sold out of handwarmers and besides that Joes apparently the only guy who has figured out how to get out there:-)

 

Heh heh........Flying Dutchman...that's good Pink.

Nah, there's a crew in a red car with a Neptune's bumper sticker on the roof rack that's been getting out quite a bit and another that drives some sort of huge panel truck that also get out every now and then.

that's exactly why i had no problem moving away from potland. portland climbing sucks w/o beacon.

 

maybe we should tell them that falcons are not endangered anymore.

I just found out I have to work on Friday. I will be there Saturday though, so if you are still free...

Looking like it's going to have to be Saturday for me, but it looks to be a good day Friday as well and someone here should get out with you then if that's the only day you can. I suspect it will be cold, but if you hit the corner about 10:45-11:00 the rock will be nice and warm for you...

After drying solid today and tomorrow the rock on the corner will be warm starting at about 10:30 and if the sun holds the temp on the climb should feel about 45-50. You just have to guard against the wind which is where the Sport Hill 'XC Cross' pants and UnderArmor 'ColdGear Mock' Tee come into play so well.

 

Hey, 112 (is that you Ken?)- just saw you're post above, pm me and we'll figure it out, but the plan should be to meet at the parking lot about 10:30 unless you're in PDX and then we can just head up together. Should be great and I definitely need to get out clear my head...

The plan is still a go for tomorrow - who's interested. 112 is coming through from Walla Walla and is in - anyone else? Kevin, your friend the new pink? The entire stretch of the next 10 days looks good as well...

112 is coming through and should be there at 10:30 and Metolius sent me a gorgeous new 9.8mm to try out rope soloing with the Edelrid Eddy. So if you and pink_chalk show up and 112 doesn't I'll probably just solo along right ahead or behind you guys and see how the new rig works.
