      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!

we head down the first weekend of june...i'm pulling him out of school for 3 days...

 

You know...i completely spaced arches....good suggestion!

 

You are right about how stoked i am at him being eight and digging climbing...

 

now here's the real kicker...he absolutely HATES plastic and the gym...he'll literally go and do 1 route and then just sit there saying "this sucks"...:lmao:

june is the month, long days and you can count on the weather. heads up, hauling on the free blast can suck around the half dollar. try to whip your haul line over so it's a straight haul from the anchor above so you can keep it out of the chimney.

Just send the little guy up trailing a rope. his/her weight is way safer. ;)

With respect to subject line: Yeah I am.

 

Have fun. Make sure you don't push him too hard.
