      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 can't tell you where this climb is - not publicly.

We don't want the place to get crowded.

Come to the picnic, though, and maybe I can tell you if you promise to keep it secret.

Believe me, that actually WAS 5.scary. Here's another incredible first ascent along the same vein:

Anyone got a child harness/chest harness for a 4yr old to bring to the swap? I might even swap for cash!

I think Ulee still has his old one. He might sell it to you, but buyer beware...he is quite an entrepreneur.

Here's some stuff I'll be bringing to the picnic.

 

This was donated to the Washington Climbers Coalition by the late Larry Kemp's mother. Stock up on some ca 1985 gear and benefit a worthy cause! It's pretty much all good stuff still, just not the latest model.

A Socket wrench with a 7/8" deep socket (notch cut out of it for the eye of the screw), was state of the art for placing screws before ten or fifteen years ago.

Yup. That is Bill Pilling, topping out on Yocum. The trees are en route to the first time my buddy Chris laid eyes on the Roan Wall in D'Town. ID the dog and you get ten points extra.

Woodland Park, Picnic Shelter #6 Update:

I swung by there this morning, and Parks' maintenance employees were working on the roof of the picnic shelter. They were surprised that Parks' administration had rented it out for events the next two days, but they assured me they'd have it waterproof for us. They had done a good job of cleaning up after tearing the old shingles off, and I didn't see any nails on the ground but they were running some kind of nail picker just to be sure.

Is it too late to request my :hcluv: ?? If not I'll take 3 or so! I'll be wearing my cool shirt with my name tag on it so everyone can point me to the right shelter.

its not to late to request a snausage! :hcluv:

 

do post if you're coming and would like one (or two). I've already stocked up on the condiments (which have always been lacking in prior years) so this year's picnic is sure to be a success.

 

Matt has also line up a pretty good slide show so hope to see you there.

I went to Trader Joe's and picked up the crude beginnings of a medium large salad.

 

Chips or other simple side dishes would be welcome.

 

I'm thinking of seeing if I can rent a banquet style hot water dispenser for hot drinks. Otherwise it'll be a camp stove but in past years nobody has been able to figure out what to do with a pot of hot water and packs of swiss miss so I figure I'd make it easy on everybody and try to get the more civilized rig.

 

I'm still looking for someone to bring a laptop that is capable of running the diggy projector so I don't have to bring my extra desktop machine and monitor from work.

 

Anybody got a box of contractor trash bags lying around?
