      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!

STFU Pink.

Your A kissing is pathetic.

 

 

 

 

 

when jesus christ was hanging from the cross he looked up and said,"forgive them, for they know not what to do".

 

btw bug, you should change your name to "nats ass".

Actually, I thought about what I was getting into on this site and came up with a dungbeetle.

While I was explaining it to my 6 year old (at the time) she said, "So you're a bug?"

 

Either way, glad I could piss you off.

So I am redeemed in your eyes?

Wow. Let's let God know. Do you have that link?

FYI; search on some of my earlier posts.

You are a noob and will be assimilated.

You bet. In fact it may be number 1831 listed on page 29 on my list of regrets! :lmao: You'll have one of these long lists later. I think we all do if we live long enough:-) I wanted to live my life saying: "I will have no regrets later". I tried to focus on being a father and a provider and still wound up with a bunch of things I regret anyway. Sigh... I guess life is quite the trade off that way.

 

Really, I think ropes got longer and it gets done in a single long pitch now. Then we were looking at a hanging belay with the leader heading directly above the belay on the crux. As he was one of the top free climbers in the world then, that would have been his pitch and I would have been the sitting duck belayer. I had done that route on aid a couple of times by then, and Bob had once led that second pitch and almost landed on me when a piece pulled ( We owned no cams that size, Steve Byrne may have just come out with his underground/garage made TCU to avoid the Jardine patents on cams but I didn't own any). Anyway, Alan was a great climber and a real good person too, I think it was OK cause he did get do the FFA later anyway but don't have a guidebook in front of me now to be sure.

 

Lester and Watts use to say "No Guts, No Glory" all the time to each other:-), I think it showed in the things they were working at the time.

 

I'd heard that Alan Watts was not climbing anymore, but supporting his son who is some kind of competitive skateboarder. Last thing I remember reading about Lester, who had moved to Boulder to go to college, was that he was up doing the 2nd ascent or ffa of some South Face of 1/2 Dome horror show when his partner fell and got messed up so bad they called out YOSAR and the helicopters. (I probably screwed that story up)

 

Any how, that's a real real sweet picture Rudy!

Did someone say Granite in the sweet warm sunshine?

 

Phat boy on Knob Job.

 

I'd was hesitant to jump on this right out of the car this trip (last spring) as I remember it was greasy hard, and I'd done it with a Japanese guy I'd met that morning in camp 4, so I wasn't sure of his belay skills. Then as I climbed up, Andrew pointed out to me that the pitch went up and left, NOT up and right (like I remembered) which was a run out 10d slab (maybe they're more bolts now, and maybe they're not 1/4"ers, I don't know as I went left at the top. Then Steve Schneider showed up and pretty much did it move for move, piece by piece as I had (except, I'd paused longer and backed up the crux piece with another), and I didn't feel so rusty or so bad after doing this first route out of the car.

Andrew Trzynka on Sacher Cracker

As we're almost starting down some climbers came walking up to do the route. (F%$#!, we'd wanted to work on getting some booty out) But it turns out it was Werner Braun and his wife Merry. So we left the piece (not ours) and hung out and visited for @a 1/2 hour or so.

 

L-R = Merry, Werner, Andrew

Finally the talkin' ended and heres Werner on Sacher:

Check out Werner: old school.

 

This is a good climb to use socks on or tape your ankles, and check out the figure 8 Werner has. :rocken:

I think the problem comes from clicking on “past 24 hours”. You really don’t know which forum something is in.

 

I know I will spray before reading the forum then I end up spraying where I should not.

 

I mean looking at the Kumbaya Denali Mountaineering guitar thing when it was first posted, how in the world can you expect something like that to stay in one spot. It had spray, sprayed all over it.

Bill, do you keep talking on the phone for an hour after the guy you are talking to has hung up?

 

WAKE UP G! This is an HISTORICAL attempt at reverse spray! HOR starts talking about spray and puts it on the climbing forum, so instead of sitting here endlessly yammering, spraying and complaining I thought I'd do this instead.

 

You got any pics involving sunshine, ice or rock, toss them in the pile.
