      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!

Huge fall at Smith

Recommended Posts

This thread went down hill the moment G spotter and Rain showed up. I had no idea it would get changed to spray. I was simply telling a story. Alex (the climber) was not being sketchy by any stretch. That is why I stated his name. He was being bold (which is what is needed to climb rated R climbs). Too bad it turned into an argument about what is huge? Who cares?

It was a gay post. That shit is routine for a good portion of people posting on this BBS. That is the reason you got hosed as a douche-bag

I am not going to read 6 pages of spray, but that fall is pretty common - the .11 crux hits at the bolt, but many get pumped out trying to get funky gear in below the bolt with hard, insecure climbing.

 

It's a clean fall and not Huge.

 

Carry on, Erik

You're talking out of your ass, 'bone. To wit (from the OP, with emphasis to show when your ass is speaking):

...You could tell he was nervous climbing past this nut. He started crying out that he wanted more gear. So he threw in a micro cam right next to the nut. Alex started climbing again but was obvious he was getting thrashed pretty quickly. He was about 4 feet from a bolt and now his feet were a good 4 – 6 feet above his gear and he was freaking out.

It would seem to me by your choice of phrasing, you are indicating pretty clearly that he was sketching. For you to now back up and attempt to cover your ass after you outed Alex in your OP as being sketched is indeed LAME. :tdown: :tdown:

Yeah, what he said.

I fell a few weeks ago. It was a tiny fall, but it was onto an alien.

 

AN ALIEN!

 

Does that count as a huge fall?

PS Philip…….please do not talk to me about online spraying. You are right on my heals. Your battle ground is Smithrock.com, mine is elsewhere.

 

When you start climbing gear…….we will talk again…..until then you are just another sporto chasing numbers….

ha, its funny because you think you know me.

Lets all guess together, so your battle ground is cascade climbers?

 

I enjoy for others using my name as a refrence to all young climbers presented as spraylords and stealing first assents, great eh.("cascadeclimbers" / Ozone).

 

Enjoy

 

OMG little bone, cascadeclimbers.com is your BATTLE GROUND?

Is that what you call it when you and pink rub your dicks together?

Have to laugh at the reference. Wasn't that Phillips pictures sprayed all over Climbing Magazine with Pat McCarthy climbing some of the pure cracks of Trout Creek 2 issues or so ago?

 

Bolt clipper? Don't think so, doze boyz climb cracks too.

 

BTW, Phillip, I bought a Thailand guidebook and want to return yours, thanks for the loan buddy, I think I only stuck a few pages together:-0 (kidding about that part).

According to the numbers here, I have never taken a big fall.

 

 

According to my own memory, any fall that I have enough time to think, "Shit, how much longer am I going to fall before my gear catches me?" or "That last piece wasn't very good, but I know the second piece is going to hold. I think" is a big fucking fall to me.

i think even better than a fall, which can happen suddenly and without warning, is freaking out mentally and starting the shake and all that fun stuff associated with a mental melt down while climbing. now that is fun....and when you can combine it with fall, its even better.

And when you get bruises to help tell the story, be sure to take pics so that your friends can laugh at your stupidity. I call it a hobby

I once tried to jump down an entire flight of stairs. I almost made it, except I landed short, rolled my ankle and pitched head first down the next flight of stairs.

 

That was a pretty big fall.
