      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!

[Roll Eyes]
Sometimes people passs over the simple answer because it is too simple. [Frown] And I wouldn't say I speak the "area climber's concensus", I'm just passing on the party line.

there is no way they could ever catch me...even with my gear on...i dare em' [Wink] and this is the part where erik pipes in saying what a tool i am and that someeone will catch me...but trust me...they wont...if they can, they are not working for a railroad that is for sure... [Wink][big Grin][big Drink] and i think i'll take the mellow 'no-one knows i'm here approach' even if i did go there which i dont think i will... no rock throwin and bird flippin for me [big Grin] at least this time..

I was at Lower Malamute this morning. The trail had new ribbons and there was the only old TRESSPASSING sign witht the rules on it (don't tie to tracks, etc..) The "DON'T CLIMB HERE" sign was gone from the trail and the routes were all chocked up. I didn't climb, I just hiked down to check on it on my way from Whistler to B'ham. By the way, Whistler rocked on Halloween!!

The "DON'T CLIMB HERE" signs never lasted even during the closure. [Frown]

 

"All chocked up"?? I'm going booty huntin' [big Grin][Wink]

Chock, chalk, oops. I never sed I culd spel! I don't go down there enough to know that people take the sign down a lot. If people take down the sign, how does a "new to the area" climber armed with a guide book, just checking things out, know not to climb there? That kind-of sucks. Well, plenty of folks have been climbing there anyways the last few days, at least by the look of things.

With the lapse in the parties heading down there, maybe now is a good time to get in and practice some aid climbing on some nice cracks. HAMMER TIME!!

No, I am serious. there are some nice lines to hammer down there without having to worry about ethics-mongers charging away at you. I am talking thin blades and knives, perhaps some coppers, rurps, we shall see. I don't agree with angles when cams can be used, but a route with a horizontal crack I am not worried about 'tapping' in a little iron for body weight transition to next piece. As long as the second doesnt mind.

I am talking way down the line brother, away from the popular area of Malamute. Hell, I have seen others doing it down there, it's just the sight and sound of a hammer gets some people real jumpy real quick. Sometimes the sound of a Hilti too.

It doesn't bother me when you call me an asshole for calling you an asshole! When you learn to police your own impulses, the worries you've just described will vanish.
