      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!

Pope convicted by his "peers"

Just noticed this subject line on the recent Ken Nichols thread. Joke. Got news for you kids, you ain't my peers. Not until you've done this:

Ultimately the "peers" are lost to history as whining non climber/poseurs who spend the better part of their free time making babies and clipping bolts.

Climbing as a whole has lost its bite and anyone who has registered after 2002 on CC.com is pretty much in the peanut, bolt clipper gallery*. Sorry peanuts, but you have missed out.

Cheers and :fahq:

 

Nice work Pope! Thats some good stuff mate. I have a PM inc to you. We have a loop to do.

 

* A few exceptions do exist.

Perhaps only those who freesolo 5.10 are you peers (insert kow tow emoticon).

 

That does not, however, plug the holes in logic-lacking arguments that leak like sieves and flip flop like flapjacks.

That title has been in place since Tuesday, 7/24, in the afternoon under which you posted numerously.

 

Perhaps, by this latest example added to a list of many, you are peerless only in obliviousness.

 

peeps show mercy 'n' pity da pope.

Obviously the opinions of anyone who don't free solo as hard aren't worth anything.

 

Just razzin ya Pope. That's actually pretty rad.

:wazup:

 

Forgive my ignorance but what climb is that?

You 3rd-classed Brass Balls? How about down Canary? And Outerspace? How about all of this and more (30 pitches) before lunch one morning?

 

Because if my "peers" are going to "convict" me, I should probably know who they are! :ass:

The "defer to the judgments of the guy who has the hardest free-solo" argument is rather odd one forward given that the number of climbers who are superior in this respect to both the Pope of twenty years ago, much less the Pope of today, who have no problem with bolted sport climbing is greater than zero.

Gulliver describes two diversions which are practiced by people seeking positions and honors at court. The first is rope-dancing, whereby candidates for office at court dance on a rope. Whoever jumps highest without falling is given the job. Sometimes, existing ministers are expected to show that they still possess this skill. The rivalry is such that often there are fatal accidents, as ministers strain too far and fall. In the second activity, candidates for honors at court must leap over, and creep under, a stick held out by the Emperor. Whoever shows most agility at "leaping and creeping" is awarded a piece of colored silk.

i've never convicted you of anything other than being a dumbass...

I didn't live here when i was young and stupid, so no, i didn't solo those particular routes...being young and stupid at one time in my life, i've soloed in that difficulty range on the east coast though...but bragging about soloing is totally ghey...its personal...

 

so tell me stud, why don't you solo anymore????
