      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!

Damn son. Put some carriage returns between those side-by-side pics and you might be able to actually read this thread.

 

How's that Will? I added Carriage Returns.

Index, the closest thing to Yosemite, and only 4 hours from Portland instead of 13. Training at Index, you can go to the Valley and deal. The wide abides.

There had to be one benefit topping out at midnight, you didn't have to wait in line to go down the cables with the masses. Not many people get the top of Half Dome to themselves, you DOG!

We did have some fun. Here is some footage of us on The Grack.

 

 

The Grack is on Glacier Point Apron.

Argus and I were down in the Valley last week getting spanked by the big walls.

 

We did a lap on Snake Dike. Fun route, but it's not really for a 5.7 leader.

 

I like the description for the top out "Second class slabs FOREVER"

Try doing the last 3 pitches in the dark with a shitty headlamp.

Think of the sun and minus a blackhole.

Very exciting and scary.

We felt like we were on the dark side of the moon.
