      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!

what can i do solo

Recommended Posts

Soloing is the masturbation of climbing - it's funner with a partner.
I'll be damned. This is probably the second time I've had to agree with Dru. But it's like kissing your sister.

solo something impressive, then people will ask you to climb with them and you wont need to solo anymore... unless you do it for fun of course.

I've soloed Sir Donald a couple times, but then again maybe I didn't solo since each time I did it with buddies and we didn't tie in to a rope.

 

It's fun to have people to talk about the climb with while you're climbing.

Hi All,

I too would like to climb solo, particularly Rainier, but that's not allowed I am told. I'll be up at Rainier this July 3-7, and would like to partner up with another partner, or partners....any takers out there? I'm having very little luck in finding a climbing partner....I'm guessing my chances may improve as we get closer to July, and others are wanting to climb Rainier in a more oppourtune time.

....let me know you people out there, I can offer any additional information you may require....I've posted in 'climbing partners' & in 'rainier np'...no luck yet, but I remain optimistic.

seriously interested climbers need only reply. :-)

you can solo rainier, you're just supposed to get a solo permit first

 

if it's getting closer to the time you want to climb and you havne't found a partner, just repost as a hot chick and you'll have your pick! they might be confused at first, but then just tell 'em you're going to meet the chick at muir or something...

This is strange...I would never rest my life with another's decision as to if I could solo or not....Sure I have soloed routes here and there from rock faces to alpine mountains. However, I never asked other people in a forum such as this. I knew my limits and abilities from climbing for awhile. Then when I felt the urge to solo I did. Though, I'd never solo on a regular basis, since it's more fun to share the outdoor experience with others.
