      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!

OK Mr Off_White, here’s another B&W photo. This is at the top of the 2nd pitch of Reeds Direct in 1974. This might have been the time Timson, Bob Crawford and I did all three pitches when Timson gave Crawford a bunch of slack on the desperate 3rd pitch off-width.

While we're at Reeds Pinnacle, here's Stone Groove - Thanksgiving 76 or 77. One of those climbs where I was so pumped I had to have someone else untie my knot. Fortunately the upper crack was wide enough I could just stuff my blood engorged forearms into the crack and it was a perfect fit.

Jeebus! That is an AWSOME picture! Beautiful black and white with perfect clarity. EB’s. Perlon and webbing slung hexes and stoppers. Maybe even a MOAC. Hole in the seat of your pants. Doesn’t get much better than that. You’re throwing down some beauties, Mr. Off_White. I still can’t believe we never crossed paths. 

Here’s another Reeds area climb on the far left side. Probably 1974 or so. The Left Side of the Remnant. A burly, overhanging, hard to protect, wide, horror show. Perfect. What could possibly go wrong.

num1mc, is this the camper you remember?

I’m still trying to figure out who you are. Are you in that Tuolumne hacky circle picture I posted?

Not to sound like a dumb-ass (oops, too late), but is that Tonasket?

Negative, Mr max. That picture was taken on the Truckee River between Reno and Truckee. There’s actually a little crack climbing area in the cliffs in the background but I can’t remember what it’s called.

These are all great photos, but I'm especially liking the B&Ws by @Off_White

I can't keep all these people and their nicknames straight though.
