      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!

Trip: West Vancouver - the traverse

 

Date: 2/24/2008

 

Trip Report:

There were a horrible number of spiders. Therapy might uncover the buried details of the climb but who has the time or money? Here are the pictures.

 

 

How can there be spiders in February?

Those spiders aren't the spiders from Charlotte's Web, that die off like clockwork every fall.

 

They are more like the facehuggers from Alien. They hibernate in the cracks until you traverse under them, then they jump on your face. If they miss, a sea lion eats them.

 

It's a short and brutal life but it has its own particular charm.

This is only the second known photograph of the infamous Loch West monster. That is a full sized cow that it is eating.
