      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!

Attn booty-er of quickdraws at Larabee boat launch

Recommended Posts

To the person who took my BD green quickdraws, please be aware that I (240 lbs) took a 50 footer onto the top one. Use wisely.

 

If I hadn't been hurt in the fall I wouldn't have left them. If you want the other 3 I took with me, I'll give you a good price.

 

This would have been a month or so ago.

Hell he just washed the slings in a mixture of white gas and diesel fuel, he thought they were dirty. Surprisingly they got quite clean. Almost so clean you couldnt see em anymore

a fifty footer on a slab like larabee probably didn't put too much stress on the draw or bolt. rock to skin friction took a good chunk of the forces. Otherwise the bolt in the shitty sandstone would have blown.

 

I knew a guy who fell from near the middle of the cliff while soloing and landed in the low water at high tide. He walked away thanks to the high friction coefficient.

Oddly I'm not so comforted by that, but thanks. My body on the rock sounded like a horse on cobbles. Weee, fun.

Funny (yeah, ha ha...) I knew a guy who did similar. He was up there as a kid with his parents, "exploring" and traversed in from the left... got stuck, scared... two broken arms. He said he met his junior high sweetie in the hospital, thuough.

I did that climb last monday (4/9) and it was not there then. However, I wish it had been!

 

That's a fun route.

 

 

I think there are only 4 bolts on the whole route, aren't there? How did you take a 50' fall onto the top one, if the top one is less than 25' from the end of the route?

 

 

You should tell your story, in all it's slab-sliding cheese-grater details.
