      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!

Silly Mountain Names

Recommended Posts

If the guy lost his leg, why did he name it after his ass? Damn Californians, they just don't make any sense. I was guessing maybe it got dubbed by some guy after a really bumpy wagon ride who had hemorhoids. Of course, maybe that's his name, and it should be Bumpass's Hell. But if your name is Bumpass, you should really look into legally changing it.

How about Jackass Pass in the Wind River's.

It's not that I have an ass fixation, it's just a funny name.

There is a Jackass Mountain in BC too, up by Lytton, but like it says in Fairley's guide, "Gold rush legends about this peak are more enjoyable than its ascent".

If combination entries are permitted, I'd have to vote for the

synergistic juxtaposistion of North Sister, Middle Sister, South Sister, and the nearby Three Finger Jack!
