      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!

Thanks for the response. I've found enough partners.

Be careful Nadia. There are some on this site who advocate "just getting out there and leading" to gain experience. That is not cool. It will get you killed.

But if you are successful you can sell a book with pictures of all the people who took our advice and died learning to lead. You see the corpse piles every time you go near Barney's Rubble or Mountie Dome. I bet the yuppies who bought Into Thin Err would buy your book too!

Big dog Drhu has spoken? So would you suggest free soloing? Perhaps when you have had good friends die doing things that "everyone does" you will mellow out a little bit.

I am sorry to hear about your friends dying in a car crash. Seriously.

I have known two people who fell to their deaths on 5.5 and 5.7. One was a 5.11 leader freesoloing 5.7, the other was a newbie on lead. She was "very athletic" and kept up with everyone at everything. But she made one mistake 40 ft off the ground on her second lead, pulled two pieces, and landed on her head. Her climbing friends who were there cheering her on weren't very happy with their decision.

Just a little anecdotal information there. I don't mean to hurt anyone's feelings.

Ok I hate to be part of the spelling police but when you spell FLOURISH incorrectly in your sig and we have to see it every time you post well, someone has to say something. [Moon]

Hi Nadia. If you are not running for your life, send me a PM. I have been trad climbing for many years and would be happy to go out for an afternoon or two. I have all the gear and have taught lots of people. My focus is on having fun and being safe.

lots of cool, taker type people to climb with here but, safe is subjective, (how much would you trust someone you don't really know to belay you)

nothing wrong with leaning to lead as a newbie if you are comfortable with and understand the potential consequences, we are all learning new stuff almost every time we climb. cool.gif" border="0

how about giving this person an answer relevant and worthwhile rather than going on a tangent about this and that? It seems as if the old boys club is always in full swing with a lot of BS and worthless info!

Nadia:

You may want to provide more informaton as far as your experience, the type of climbing you want to do (sport, ice, alpine, basic mountainering, etc.) And also include what your avaiability is, roughly anyway. Are you a weekend only person? Weekdays?

Info like that will help those out there that might be willing to help.

Good luck....

Forget the f'ing spelling bee. It's devolved into a damn game of Pictionary. Here's my contribution. Just try to load this page on a modem now.
