      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!

Recommended Posts

That would be interesting to know.. I'm making plans for it and Im 15.. its probably been done by someone younger though... I wonder what the youngest ascent of Slesse's NEB is?

Contact the SeattlePi and SeattleTimes. I'm sure they will sponsor your kid and do a nice story on him. With all the publicity I'm sure someone will step forward if they did it at a younger age.

But what's the point? Reminds me of Jessica Dubroff.

Dru.. do you know about Slesse's NEB? If I do it at 15 will it be a youngest ascent? Or do I have to lead everything for that to count?

The youngest ascent was when Dru climbed the route with his girlfriend - she'll be graduating from middle school next week.

Guys, This is a young man seeking good info.

I don't know who made the youngest ascent of the NEB of Slesse but I suspect the age record at the moment is <14.

I wish I could be so lucky.

 

I do have to comment though that its pretty badass if Rudy's 8 year old climbs the Grand Wall, even as a second.

I think that was mostly aimed at RuMR who asked Dru a question directly and then proceeded to spray at him in his own beloved Kid's forum.

he won't be leading so its not a real ascent...he's only 8...

 

First of all who cares? Second....."ascend" means to go up.....so if he climbs it aid or not he is still ascending.....got it!

what is really cool about the little dude is that he recognizes the differences between a guided situation and a real team ascent...

 

told me, "Dad, when you get too old to lead, i'll be ready"...he already shreds on bolts...

First of all Rumr....I thinks is great your son climbs....but you might want to think about your wording. You said ascent not free ascent. There is a difference. Don’t teach your son to be an elitist.
