      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   11/10/22

      Huge thank you to Bellingham based The American Alpine Institute for being our sole sponsor, taking care of our hosting costs,  which is our biggest cost.  @Jason_Martin  of AAI reached out to me, and really wanted to support the forums.  They have supported us in the past,  and now stepped up to support us again.  They will be our sole sponsor for 6 months.   Big time, and they are a local climbing related company to boot!

we aren't starting a forum for every dirty little rock someone spit shines.

 

 

 

I agree....so can we have one for Beacon?

 

You go Kevbone.

 

Kevbone Jake has a point in that Index doesn't have it's own forum.

But I don't see as much posted about Index.

I looked at the list of forums and crags don't get there own forum on CC. Bummer. We do burn the space on the Rock Climbing forum. Rock on Beacon Climbers!

That is because Beacon climbers are passion climbers.

Interesting: From the forum list,Rock Climbing Forum - "Come Join Peter Puget for inspiring discussions on the joys of cragging in a spray free zone."

 

Does this hold up?

 

I like the idea of the past 24 minus Beacon option.

I don't think you realize how gay that sounds.

Hey Dirty Harry....are you going to shut up or come on over and climb at Beacon with us? What is your favorite climb there?

I am really liking that first pitch of Young Warriors.

Got the on sight. But I don't think it counts as Jim Opdycke was telling every move from the bottom.

Sure is a fun route.

Right Gull, Right Gull!!!
Right Gull is OK, but far from my favorite.

 

Anyone want to get out today? Blue skies and high around 60.

I on-sighted the route from the parking lot to the summit. Free solo, none the less!

Are you saying you have free soloed YW's?

If you onsite free soloed YW, thats pretty dicey. Pulling on those scary flakes on pitch 2 would freak me with no rope, and pitch 3 and 4 and 5, fairly sustained for a onsite free solo. Very impressive.

I am thinking of taking the wife up SE corner today, should be in shape, don't you think?

Pitch two would be scary, but IMO not nearly as scary as soloing pitch 4. Going straight up over the crux bolt with a rope is unnerving due to the slabby nature....but with no rope....gripped.

Very fine day at Beacon today. Not a breath of wind, great temps, and the rock was pretty dry. YW and Crusing looked wet still. SE Corner with the wife was great and did last pitch by headlamp,it gets dark at 5:30 now. Saw Jim O in the parking lot, but didn't hear anyone else on the rock after the first pitch.

If an earthquake hit the Columbia, and Bacon Walk fell into the river, the amount of quality Portland climbing might decrease but the overall quality of Washington rock would probably increase somewhat...
