      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!

Diamond free solo video!

Previously, as some may remember, Charlie tied in and jumped off for a 150' free fall in Eldorado Canyon.

 

And yes, he was responsible for renaiming Integral to Casual. I have done the route and "Casual" at 10a at 14000 ft. seems like a misnomer. Probably because Charlie was badass and I was at my limit.

Come on guys!! WTF!?! The chick does a kick ass solo and they make a good video of it. Then you all sit here behind your computers and pick apart the fact that she shares her feeling and thoughts about climbing it. WTF!?! She did something many of you freaks will NEVER do!!! (I said a"few" cause i know there are a few who posted that can.) If ya just want grunts and groans without words, feelings and thoughts then go watch a video of pigs fucking! ;)

 

I love the video and she inspires me...just like many of you do. :P

No one here questions how amazing this is (I think), but think of it much like guys watching the Miss Universe contest and critiquing a mole on an amazing girls' thigh.....I think it's part of human nature to observe things not easily discernible. For myself, it is nothing short of amazing to the point I'm nearly speachless when an Alex Honnold free solos a Moonlight buttress (V 5.12d) or something like this gets done.

 

Joesph, great link. The filming must have been terribly difficult yet they pieced together a nice short film there.

No, it's not this at all. Climbing skill and douchiness of personality are independent of one another. Nobody was picking at a miniscule aspect of her climbing skill.

 

It is more like laughing at Miss South Carolina's incomprehensible rant.

I don't think you understand. When you have attained that high a level of spirituality and enlightenment, money is just a superficial distraction.

there's a big sale on discarded souls at the base of Castleton. You should go check it out. Also I have some extra shoe shine and tongue protectors if you need them.

 

Fangrrrrrrl.

By the way, this Patagonia R1 top made from organic Alpaca liver lining hewed from the carcass by the nomadic people of the Peruvian Andes in the late 1500's and is all natural and carbon neutral on the go activewear for the everyday hardman- or woman- really keeps me warm on long onsight solos, romantic jaunts up runout 5.12 friction with my soulmate, or just chilling in my beater '07 Winnebago modified Sprinter with my dog Granite listening to Whale Song CD's and munching on organic free range sustainable locally grown Quinoa salad with authentic Moroccan homemade hummus.

worry not. Each hold is worth about $27, 3 new pairs of rock shoes and a top. So it's a no-fall zone at each moment. If I should waver, the camera dangling over the edge atop the climb entices me upward and crystallizes my focus as I remember what is at stake and what I have to lose.
