      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!

trip reports VS a regular climbing day

Recommended Posts

You should stop and read the spew you write.

 

ps: lets review your pictures - here's a sampling of those you post, often repeatedly, and you are saying that Ivan's climbing pictures should be in these threads in spray.

 

What kind of pro is this picture you posted?

Do you want to review the route pictures Ivan has been taking? His are different than yours...oh yes they are! Big time!!! You want his climbing pictures to be in the same areas as these is what you are saying.

 

Right?

Bill.

You have too much time on your hands.

Need a new hobby?

Or are you intentionally encouraging KB?

Thanks 5 K.

 

BTW, even when I post non-climbing pics of weapons, they are usually at a climbing area being shot after we are done for the day. (although I've ceased doing this, partially cause I can't shoot well when exhausted and partially as I'd rather toss lead into a berm that will have the lead mined and recycled like at the range).

 

 

Like this. I described my Trip report in spray that we climbed all day and then did target practice.

All this coming from someone who if i remember correctly wrote a TR about climbing Super Slab at Smith. Which is a great route i must admit.

 

But how is that different that anyone else's? I guess that falls in your "must be a 3 hour drive" rule? Oh, now i know how you came up with 3 hours.

 

Ivan, your all good. We got your back.

With the amount of intoxicants that Ivan consumes, you don't have to take much of a trip to take a long trip.

Well then Ivan you must come up North and consume massive quantities and do some climbing with my crew! :brew:

lord, the worst fucking hangover i ever had in my life was in the 'ham, waking up on the floor of the hovel mike layton was squatting in, just a few hours after mikey had almost gotten us all killed having threatened a nice homeless crackhead lady - it was 100 degrees at 9 in the morning and i puked in the burger king parking lot - then things got worse over the drive back to the 'couve - ever since then i've been like, yo fuck b-ham! :)

Look, I've witnessed Ivan's 'normal day out' and I'm here to tell you there's nothing 'normal' about it. The minute Ivan rolls into the parking lot, 'normal' starts heading for the tourist trail and I not sure I can recall ever seeing him do anything 'normal' out at Beacon. I'm guessing if I were to actually stick around and bear witness it would be the scariest thing I'd see every week. In fact, I'll go out on a limb here and say there is nothing 'normal' about Ivan. And maybe that's part of his charm - online and off - and also why he's always doing something pretty damn strange. And while Ivan's take on strange isn't anything like my own, he does embody the very essence of my post-40 climbing motto and mantra:

 

"If you can't climb hard, climb strange..."

 

Now I'll admit it's a little eaiser to live up to that motto if you're Ivan or me, but I like to think there's a little something there for everybody. Take Bill Coe for instance, he does a lot of strange shit on a fairly regular basis - usually just when you think you have him figured out - but he's still as popular and healthy as ever (o.k. that knee thing didn't work out so well, but you never want to count him down and out for long). And Opdycke? Hell, the very definition of making strange seem normal.

 

Come to think of it, it's hard to think of almost anyone who has ever climbed out at Beacon on a regular basis that isn't pretty damn strange on any given day. McGown? No need to even ask. [Old] Kenny? Don't get in his way. Larry? Healthy and sound as a bent penny. Stewart? Gett-outa-here. Pink? What's your guess? Kevbone? Hell, he's running a 1000:1 spray-to-TR ratio here so he's about as strange as they come - we hear about it anytime Kev goes climbing because, between work, home and kids, a trip to Ozone is a veritable expedition despite the fact it has all the outward appearances of a quick trip to the gym. And, o.k., a lot of the new kids do seem kind of normal; but we don't really know all that much about most of them yet, and you have to admit the ones we do seem like maybe they've been bent, folded, and mutilated a couple of times (or are about to be). I guess for me it boils down to the old saw that people who live in glass Gerbil wheels shouldn't flip shit at others.

 

Oh, and pink - that college shit is way over rated - these days if you look at 95% of college grads they're all just sitting at a box typing. It's virtually impossible to tell what one may be doing different from the next screen-lit automaton (myself included) except by carefully analyzing their mouse click logs. Sad truth is, mostly they're just shit-talking on their forum-of-choice in order to see something even more pointless than their own lives staring back at them every fifteen minutes in a vain attempt to cling onto something to live for.

 

Given your alternatives at 10:16 on any given morning, Ivan's TRs friggin' rule...

Not that I've read anything in this thread but Joseph's post, but I will read anything written by Ivan.

 

Thank you Joseph for "people who live in glass Gerbil wheels shouldn't flip shit at others." That made my day.

Choada, it's unclear if you're talking about Ivan, Kevbone, or Joseph. Maybe that's intentional :laf:

I spray my share here, but I'm usually much quieter than either Ivan or Kevbone out at the crag - those guys are like walking AM radios and both should be talk radio hosts or DJs. I pretty much just like to get on with my business when I'm out and don't really say anything or make noises when I'm on rock.

Expressiveness does not equate to ego, as the original poster would suggest.

 

I can personally attest that if you climb with Ivan, you're in for an experience you probably won't soon forget.

 

Be ever mindful, however, that you're tied in to what is basically a living, breathing, singing Mack truck.
