      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!

I was thinking that rapping is not climbing. Rapping is not restricted, only climbing. Maybe the BRCA office is still legally accessible for those monthly meetings.

Good point, nice loophole. Who's gonna put this to the test?

Yeah, give that a try - if only park rangers were lawyers...

I actually find rappelling repellent.

whilst sunbathing and getting good n' drunk in the merced a few years back, i saw some dudes rapping el cap on a single rope from the summit near the nose topout - that, in fact, looked fucking ridiculously unrepellent! :)

Thanks... :grin:

 

This genus is found throughout the gorge is it not?

 

I think it is a Crustose - any fungi masters out there?

I just read this entire thread. Two thoughts:

 

1) I feel like I have fallen into the internet thread equivalent of the Thunderdome, and it is lasting *forever*

2) I really need to get on some Beacon Rock this year

Beacon Rock is a special place. It has been known to heal. It has been known to be a place of romance. It has been known to be a place of grieving and great joy. Lots of partying. Lots of great climbers have come from its flanks. It has been known to completely destroy relationships. Its a Yosemite training ground.

 

It is my church, my sacred ground. Some of the best bonds with friends have been forged on the vertical world it has to offer.

Well, it is kinda nice to have a little something to trade for early opens. But hell, I'm sure no real beatard would even consider climbing a day before July 15th if it meant cooperating with 'the man' once a year. Oh wait, that's right, you guys all just signed on to the big document enthusiastically pledging to do just that - never mind. And crikey, I can't wait for the BRCA to actually start picking up some of the slack out there as I'm gettin' kind of sick of doing it...

Just wake me up when it opens. I can barely carry my fat ass up there, much less a bunch of gravel.

 

Thank you for your hard work though.
