      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!

Anyone recognize the guy third from the left, on the ground. Yep Jake Porter without a doubt.

No, I was not a Batt-Boy, but that is some good training. Never know when you're going to have to fist jam in a combat situation.

There was a morning at Classic Crack when a team of Army Rangers showed up trying to climb it and rap it. I think it might have been the day in the photo above 25-30 years ago there about. Anyway, one guy got stuck half way and was freaking, and the officer was yelling "Deal with it Ranger, deal with it!"

So that became our mantra when someone would freak out partway up on some climb we would yell it at them. I saw someone named a climb in the Leavenworth guide "Deal with it Ranger". Maybe the Rangers went to Classic Crack allot, but I only saw them there myself the once.

Does anyone know if this has anything to do with how the Index climb "Deal With it Ranger" got it's name?

My mantra has always been "What would Bachar (RIP) do?" Total control using precise strength and balance- it was awesome to watch John fucking Bachar solo.

Oh man, that was my worst ever Index route name.

Indeed, it originated from those rangers at Classic Crack.

Over 7000 views per foot of climb.

 

Some fun historical anecdotes make it more fun including Leclerc before he outgrew cc.com.
