      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!

Gaia. He broke his leg. I think his belayer had spiked track shoes on in case he needed to run to take in slack.

 

That movie rules (Hard Grit)!

Looks like he could have placed some small gear right after he gets into the crack, a few feet above his last piece. But I wasn't there. Don't the Brits grid bolt cracks? That would have helped

My whipper on the ice with Tvashketarkena today was bigger and upside down.

See ice forum.

Are you ok, Jens? I'm sure it is a big whipper to fall on 6bolts.

 

Oh wait, that guy only had one tcu in and was free climbing, not "aid/ice/mix" climbing. Sorry, without video proof, you're just talking. But hey, thanks for coming by, beating your chest and then letting us know where we could read your amazing "story".

 

Please feel free to let me know, but isn't aid, I mean, ice climbing with screws?

I don’t think he hit his head. I do think he broke his leg. Ouch! Frickin grit!

 

sprained ankle is all.

 

I’m not so sure. I own the video and he bled on the wound. Last I checked you don’t bleed with a sprained ankle.

There was an article in Rock & Ice on that Crag, no bolts allowed. Lisa Rands did Gaia in Dosage 4, ran it out like a champ.

I beleive this is a standing rule there, no bolts period. Bold climbing.

"Steward says it isn't a whipper if you fall on a bolt, even if you did fall the entire pitch." catbirdseat

 

Does it really say "King of Spray" under your name catbirdseat? Please explain, I am relatively new to the site.

 

Ohh yeah, check out my totally huge whipper that is way huge and totally bigger than any other whipper in the history of climbing. Its in the Ice Climbing Forum under "I'm way cooler than anyone on this web site" Its right under Jens post titled; "My whipper on the ice with Tvashketarkena today was bigger and upside down.

See ice forum."

 

And then you can check out my other self promotion under "blah, blah, blah"

 

WOW!!! There really are tools that are sharper than an ice axe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just kidding

Nice call snoop on the “im the best Ice climber around because I take whippers chest beating thread”

 

Another one would be “hey look at me, I got some stolen gear returned” Well that is a good job, but to post it here so everybody can pat your back. Lame.

 

That’s why this entire site should be spray. Because that’s all it really is. Any time you talk about yourself…..its SPRAY!
