      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!

Oh the rainy weekends

Recommended Posts

No climbing for me this last weekend. rain saturday, no one to climb with for the few hours of sunshine on sunday. so now I am left thinking about the weekend before's climbing. Nothing great, just a 10 pitch day at broughton. Edges and Ledges as a warmup. all 3 pitches of gandalf's grip. Don't really like counting that last pitch, but it does need to be all set up so it gets counted. Thats 4. Thai Stick and the first pitch of redeye as 1 pitch for #5. classic for 6. sheer energy and the second pitch of sheer stress for 7 & 8. I had never done the second pitch of sheer stress, so that was cool. no friction and shoot from the hip finished the day. it was time to go, so no time for hard body. I had been looking forward to it all day too.

That sounds like a totally fun day....ever tried doing gandalf's in one pitch? It works......and makes a fun change of pace.
