      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!

Looking for Climbing Partner(s)

Recommended Posts

A long time ago, I was a rock climber, like 25 years ago. Now I want to try again, at about the level that rock climbing was way back then (say 5.9 is the outside limit, unless I get way stronger or braver). Anybody out there who wants to do low key stuff with a semi-geezer?

You can contact me direct at dpetersen@edge2net.net

I live in Kirkland, Washington, just outside Seattle. I work the normal Monday thru Friday, but can occasionally play hooky. I am familiar with Leavenworth and Index stuff, but haven't a clue about other areas like Darrington, Mt. Si, Exit 38, etc., etc.

I have some gear, and can acquire more as time goes on. I have the basic safety skills and good familiarity with passive protection (no experience with cam's and such, as yet). Basically, I have started bouldering (but am a little intimidated to go to a gym) and have done a little practicing at Marymoor, both leading and belaying.

I have fond memories of climbs like Canary and Outer Space, both of which I have done several times, but not since about 1980. Family and work got priority, a familiar story.

Aerobically, I am pretty fit, my main activity for the last fifteen years has been distance cycling. A pound up and down Mt. Si still pounds my quads for a few days (as it did this week, since I went up Sunday afternoon with some friends).

So, a bio instead of a short answer. It's more fun than watching TV.
