      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 solo speed record on the Tooth?

Recommended Posts

the actual climb of the peak though is a tiny fraction of the c2c - you spend far more time running there and back! so you're record has practiclly nothing to do w/ the ability to clambe rup 5.easy w/ alacrity :crazy:

I climbed le toof once when it was 60 degrees in January, and that was enough for me. Better/funner things can be climbed. Don't even want to go back to solo it. But hey, it's your boat.

I find it pretty fun. I just recently did it again.

 

If you think that's fun, you should check out some stuff at Index. That shizzle will leave you with a smile for dayzzz!

 

Good luck and have fun. :)

the one n' only time i ws n the nhood and climbed it (solo) was the day a couple years back that that fucking horse broke it's leg in the preakness and had to get shot on the fucking track, leg all in a thousand fucking pieces - i was rather comfortably numb at the tim ei recall, damn near barely walk w/o falling over in a giggle-fit and remember not being able to get the fucking image of the whole fucking disaster oughta my cerebellum the whoel time i was actually crawling up the thing in me boots, stepping over girlfriends n' thier gumbies

 

other than that though it was great :)

 

soloing the improbable traverse is much kewler

Must be tough being such a hardman Markjizzy. How do you do it? (hmm..just noticed you haven't posted any TR's...)

 

I'm not trying to be a hard man here, if you noticed, you're the one bragging about how you climbed the south face in 10 minutes. I'm sure all the little chickas in your grade 11 english class are impressed.

I think that soloing the NE Buttress of Slesse should be the gold standard free solo for any aspiring cascade soloist.... that is real stuff right there.

Now the real question is what is your solo speed record up classic crack?

 

Oh, fucking gnarly. I onsight bouldered that thing in like 5 minutes camp to camp before sending some boulders.... :toad:

Oh Hell yes. My first lead was the lizard (stiff 5.8) and I've done all the classic Index 9's. I learned to climb at Index. Yes it is all it is stacked up to be. It teaches you so much about real trad.

haha. Yes grade 11. What kind of insult is that? I was just curious. Whatever man...

 

No insult, I was just opining that the girls in your 11th grade remedial English class must think you're all that.

Someone needs to free solo that nekkid on a busy summer weekend just for the reaction by the mounties and gumbies. That would be some funny shiz. Beckey route on Lib Bell would be a good one for that too. :laf:

i'd be too afeared some gripped n' bearded mountie, petrified by the lack of dependable pro, would try to girth-hitch my johnson, man

With the hundreds of feet of tubular those dudes are usually toting they may actually be able to girth hitch my nutsack.

The Tooth is worthy, the Mounties and the rocks they trundle are objective hazard training. I like to solo laps on it. I've done 4 laps including the approach gully that goes direct to Pineapple pass. Wondering what the record is for laps in a day, and do you down climb or rap on speed ascents? I've done it both ways.
