      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!

free for all is the best sustained 5-8/5-9 crack climbing within 100 miles of portland. (once you're past the short sharp 10minus corner right off the ground)

 

back in june i did the 4 pitch "the line" at lover's leap, supposedly one of the best 5-9s anywhere, and while it was stellar, i found free for all even better a few weeks later...

 

How many miles is it from PDX to Smith?

I know the one. It gets me every time. About half way up. It makes it the hardest 5.8 anywhere.

The hardest 5.8 anywhere? Riiiight. Let me guess, the opening moves on Nine Gallon makes it the hardest 5.9 anywhere, right?

 

A grade is a grade is a grade....

 

Nope, I know where the hardest 5.5 in the state is....but I'm not sayin'.....

 

I know where the "best" 5.9 is in the state, but I'm not sayin'....

What? I hope your joking. Are we talking about the same Leap and the same Beacon Rock? The Leap makes Beacon Rock look like a teetering choss heap (which it is)

 

But since were talking about it, let's put my vote on Free for Some linked into Dodd's, lot of bang for the buck.

The best climb at Beacon is at Index.

if all these scientist pricks would quit fucking their lab-assistants and finally invent a teleporter i'd do a hell of a lot more climbing at index (especially if it could dump me off right at the base of the upper wall :) )

:rocken: Outstanding response ivan!

Funny, a few years back I used to think the Portland crowd was a good bunch of friendly people who hung out together and had great pub clubs & other fun, unlike the more testy crew up north. :rolleyes:

it's been years since we've been doing regular pube-clubs - kids and poverty (connection?) did it for me - fwiw, we don't usually call each other cock-smokes in the flesh :)

Perhaps more people should realize this. If anything this site gives u some thick skin.

 

I recently had a discussion about this with some other cc climbers....

 

Oh and YW is my fav, but I am a single cell organism in my evolution as it relates to climbing at Beacon and will likely have a different answer at this time next year :tup:

In by unanimous decision (insert drum roll here :rawk: )... Everyone's favorite at Beacon is... the 5.8 OW start on Free for All. Followed by a close second is... Delusions of Granduer.
