      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!

Washitonians do it better

Recommended Posts

So i just moved to Denver, and I have gone out climbing a couple of times to some local crags. It's nice to have climbing 20 mins away, but PEOPLE BOLT CRACKS HERE AND IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY!!!!! I think Washitonian route setters are smarter than the route setters here in CO. Sorry, i just wanted to complain a little...

Are you talking about that Shelf Road area? That always had a reputation for overuse of bolts.

 

They don't have that kind of ethic in Eldorado Canyon. That place rocks. So does Mickey Mouse Wall. I should add that getting to Micky Mouse Wall is exciting since you have to travel through 4 RR tunnels to get there. I had good times climbing there.

 

During my time in the Boulder area I'd climb in Eldo or up at Lumpy Ridge. That and the proximity to some great climbs in RMNP were some good things about the area.

 

In the end though I got sick of the place and wanted to get back to the PNW since it's way cooler.

Washitonian route setters are smarter...

 

When you move to Colorado you lose the use of your "G" key. They confiscate it at the state line.

I put a bolt near a crack the other day and I still feel the shame. I don't know how they can live with themselves.

 

Wheres was this Mythosgirl?
