      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!

When did you become such a badass?

 

Dude I'm no badass. I'm a solid 5.9 climber!

 

Being a solid 5.9 free-soloist in the alpine (while enchaining big, committing peaks) is NOT the same as being a solid 5.9 climber.

 

Admit it: You are a bad-ass, whether you like it or not!

I'm proud to say that I climbed with you when you were just getting started!

 

I was attempting Serpentine Arete on Sept 20 with Bucharoo.

 

Man you don't mess around.

I agree with Pete. I don't know you but I read your TRs and you've apparently come a long way from this....

 

Aiding CBR

 

Soloing OS is one thing, soloing it after a full-on beat-down day like that....ANOTHER! My hats off to you but fess up, where's the motivation coming from!?

Yeah, that orange alien on the Remorse start on Snow Creek Wall is enduring testament to our learning curve.

Thanks! I'm not quite sure what motivates me. Never really looked into it. It's enough for me to just get out and do it on routes well within my ability and are fun.

I'm a hack. I shake and rattle my way up most 5.10's.

Funny, I did the approach and hike down toketie this summer. I thought the exact same thing. The trail is much worse than a few years ago.

 

Nice job badass.

Im not saying telemarker is not badass... but when soloing I find that you climb so focused that 5.8-5.9 and 5.10 all feel about the same and you never fell like a total badass after a solo, you just feel like you had lots of fun! Now soloing 5.11 is hard and scary :o for me at least....
