      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!

Today (only) rope special

Recommended Posts

I've got an Edelweiss Laser, 9.8. Has held up quite well. Only thing that is less than ideal is that it has a bit of a stiff hand to it. Not exactly slinky like the Mammut's or Beals I've played with.

I've got a 60m Axis, though I thought mine was 10.6mm, can't remember. Definately cable, but works just fine, it's been moderately abused on trad and some aid trips. No complaints, but definately cable compared to most.

Dude, you gotta post a separate thread so people (my partners) can buy those damn OP cams. It's an amazing price.

 

Hey, I just went to fetch the link and no link or cams showed! Shite!

 

Fortunatly I have 3 coming. Proving only once again that if you snooze- you do lose.

I picked up a OP #2 at REI with 20% off it wasn't much more and I had to burn up my dividend anyway... ;)

Just picked up a new pair of twins. Finally retiring the old ones after (gulp!) 9 yrs I think? Thanks for the tip Billcoe!

I saw it just before I turned off the computer the other night for bed. So I ordered a set of the Link Cams and went to bed with a smile.

They should be delivered to me tomorrow!

Thanks!

I get all my ropes for free.

 

Say what?

 

If you need any distant relatives to show up and accept hand-me- downs let me know cause I'll apply.

BTW, mine showed up and they rate VERY high on the fondling scale. Can't wait until I can get out and actually plug em in.

If youre talking about the Link Cams, I agree, VERY high on the fondling scale. Plugged them in some deco bricks at work. Held nice. What the hell I had to use them on something! :)

I actually passed on buying any of the link cams at that great price (I'm trying to cut down on my gear-whore-ness).

But I do already own one of the yellow link cams, and I agree that it's a great toy. Since I bought it, I've been getting some good use out of it as a 2nd piece in the #.75-#2 camalot range.

 

And don't worry Bill, next time I see a great deal like that I'll start a new thread to make sure it gets noticed.

Hey there, My main rope is 50 mtrs. So maybe I'm dumb and too stubborn to replace it until it wears out. And just what is wrong with the '70's?

 

50 mtrs: cheaper, lighter, less gear, you can still hear your partner. So there.

 

 

(oh yea; it never wears out because my partners all refuse to climb with the thing - great money saving strategy :-) )

Mike, hope you've retired the goldline by now. BTW - weren't you the person who almost patented the saying "My rack your rope"? :grin:

 

BTW, if you get up here to visit relatives or anything, look me up we'll go do somepin'. Been a long long time.

 

Take care

 

Bill Coe
