      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!

Worst climb

Recommended Posts

My first climb with the Mounties went something like this:

 

We all met at the Everett PUD after work, then packed into a single station wagon for an intermittable drive to Liberty Mtn (oh, you haven't heard of it?). At about mile post 1000 on the logging road, we passed a teen couple that were living large out of a mud spattered '64 Plymouth Valiant. A middle aged woman in our party saw fit to ask them 'do your parents know you're up here?', to which they replied with couple of shit eating, we're-just-the-kid-next-door affirmatives.

 

As we set up camp next to a slash pile, it began to rain. The inquisitive woman, now sporting a pink jogging suit, went out, well, for a jog; one of those hyper active, mini bunny hop jogs one performs during those last few desperate steps to the john immediately following a hangover morning's first Draino-strength cup of coffee. Her regimen was over as quickly as it began; just long enough to warrant an entry in her jazzercize journal.

 

I gazed up at our objective; 2000' feet of tertiary forest bushwhacking, commencing with a valley descent and creek crossing, and ending with perhaps 100' of mossy, shitty rock. Pure dread.

 

Then I gazed at my fellow alpine warriors. The last time I felt this disconnected with my own species was as a four year old living in naval housing; the day I discovered that my newfound playmate had a penchance for playing with his own feces.

 

Fortunately, pouring rain quashed our daring plan. After that, I made it a point to get to know some of the climb leaders before signing on.

Glacier peak, Kennedy Ridge: 22 miles RT in boots a pair of Assholeohs that were too small. No summit.

Not enough food + insane weather + death blisters from hell + intense suffering = MORE FUN THAN I'VE EVER HAD IN THE CITY.

 

Even the worst climbs, in my opinion, are a wonderful time. I've never "not had fun" :nurd:

You may be onto something there!

 

My friends and I have longstanding joke about climbs we don’t like while we are on them but later sitting around the fire we rave about them.....they are called a funsuck. I think it is self-explanatory.
