      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!

About me and who I'm looking for

 

Wow. I never thought I'd ever find myself doing this. But it's just so hard to meet people these days. Usually you meet people at work or through friends, but that just isn't working. And I'm just not into the bar scene anymore.

 

I know it's cliche, but I love long walks in the woods. I'm fit. I have a fair amount of free time. And I'm highly motivated and committed. I like rocks. But I like ice better. Especially in the mountains. I've got a fair amount of experience, but I certainly don't know everything and am no hard man. Yet?

 

You - well, you better be at least reasonably fit. I'm not into cults, but I guess you can crossfit. Just don't expect me to. You know enough about climbing not to get killed, and maybe you know a lot. I'm more interested in someone willing to get after it, is motivated to climb a lot, and has the time/ability to do that. You're also willing to suffer, 'cause you know that's where the fun's at.

In my own words

 

In all seriousness, I'm tired of fucking around. I've been half-assing this climbing thing for years now. Getting out in short spurts, starting to get somewhere and then something gets in the way. The most frustrating is maintaining consistent and motivated partners who have similar interests. I know everyone has a real life, but I'm tired of losing partners to wives, kids, careers, etc. Its time to put up, and shut up for me. I got into climbing because of the mountains. I lost sight of that somewhere along the way and the cragging became an end in and of itself. I want to get back into the mountains. Climb as much possible, and work towards Alaska and the Canadian Rockies.

 

Realistically, I'm looking for a group of people who are sincerely motivated to climb. I don't care if you don't have much experience. I'm not going to teach you how to use crampons and swing a tool. You already know how to do that. But I'll take motivation over skill any day. I've spent years climbing with people who climb much harder than me, and while I've gotten to do some great stuff, I didn't do any of it personally, and I've missed out on all the intermediate stuff necessary for my own development. Until I can do it myself, I'm done with that.

 

If you're interested, PM me. We'll get out. Somewhere. Soon. My only limit is no south sides. I've put in my time slogging. I'm open to anything else.

 

Your match,

 

Donnie
