      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!

Name that Crack

Recommended Posts

I've started to see this kind of thing happen a lot over here in Spain in the area (Cuenca) that we normally climb sport in. The things is that these kind of routes usually spring up in areas that have already been developed for years. People start putting up routes on fragile rock and thus they glue or concrete fragile features onto the rock. I've also seen routes that people have built features onto the rock using concrete. I don't really care for this type of route creation because typically with glued on holds you get blatant drilled out holds.

I remember seeing that kind of stuff on Uncle Ben's but I don't remember it being that bad.

It's the crack right above the big roof. What the heck is going on?

Back in the day there was a free attempt on Uncle Ben's so maybe it has something to do with that. Nothing more than conjecture though. Or maybe it was just such a bad rope eating flake while jugging that some earnest aider decided to patch it up. Grasping at straws here. I dunno.
