      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!

Mt Olympus summit, 1971. Army surplus wool pants, homemade harness & clown white sunscreen. Shorts over polypro became fashionable much later. Happy days.

Smith Rocks trad, 1977. Chocks only, no cams, no pitons, no sport routes, few bolts. Safe climbing became popular much later.

Pall Mall, if memory serves me correctly.

Digital cameras weren't even available to the general public yet and I remember scanning this crappy photo!

What, there's babies who smoked illicit substances?? :noway: The Pall Malls were bad enough. That's why I quit at around 10 mos. old. It was a dirty habit.

WHAT!!!!1?? You don't like my first-issue Patagucci canvas climbering shorts, complete with the double reinforced ass?

Clearly, you don't know haute couture when you see it. Pffft! Amateur.

No Sobo, I think she's remembering another photo of you and considers shorts to be overdressed.

No, no, I wasn't dissing the canvas shorts. The reinforced butt is a nice touch of class. They were just a bit of a let-down after the "garter-harness" you sported in the "Nice Climbing guys" thread.
