      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

im sure more than half the peopel going up the Tooth 'solo' it

 

Probably not, most of the numbers are in Mounties and they are always roped. Probably 1/4 or less are soloing.

SCJB, I don't know how long you have been climbing, but you should probably climb more and talk about it less. When you first start climbing, we all think what we are doing is amazing and special. Once you know what you are doing, you realize how retarded you were at first.

 

Seriously, you seem pretty proficient. Check out some of the moderate classics like the North Ridge of Stuart (CNR for full value), NEB of Slesse, or Liberty Crack. Stop playing pattycake on Mt Si and Mountaineer's basic routes, and more than anything, stop spraying about playing pattycake on these routes.

 

Yes, we were all new climbers at one time. Yes, we all did the pattycake routes too. That's not the point. The point is, when we didn't know shit about shit we didn't spray about it or argue with people about it.

 

Go climb something that will actually be challenging for you. then come back and tell us about it.

Dude, I read some of the tr's on here - such as the free ascent of Thin Red Line and realize I am still retarded. The stuff I am doing hardly seems worthy.

 

The point is, when we didn't know shit about shit we didn't spray about it or argue with people about it.

 

Then again we did't have the internet to spray about upon, when we were starting out.

Don't see why you are hating but I'll reply (bite). I just did this as an afternoon special. Left the house at 3pm. My partners were all busy. It was fun to actually do a car to car push on something moderate. But ya, there are much better fish out there. I just needed to test myself on this one car to car (and get out of my "bubble"). It was fun, I don't have regrets. But ya, I hear ya. I realize my competency is much greater than the routes I've done so far. Not sure why that is. Guess I need to start pushing the envelope.

You keep missing the point. The point is, stop spraying.

Oh and all those routes are on my tick list. Just need to learn to aid better.

 

You need to learn to aid better for CNR Stuart and NEB Slesse? O.K. Thanks for the honesty. Please keep it clean so you don't pin scar the cracks too much for us free climbers :battlecage:

So I actually did it car to car today which was fun. Did it in 2:13 which I was happy with.

 

You should sign your ice tools. Between that and the custom tape job they would be worth a fortune.

No, no, no.

 

He needs to fix pins and bolts every three feet so the sprot climbers can get their burn.

Ok air...you do the car to car in faster time. Check back. If you do it and provide proof, mock away. Oh, and do the north ridge of baker in a day too. Then post away.

Ya well someone with 1 post has slightly less weight than a regular. If you want proof I can send you a video. But you can always fake that stuff. But who does that? I mean seriously.

Soloing the Tooth from the trailhead in a couple hours doesn't seem that much fun to me. What about trying to see how many Snoqualmie peaks you can solo in a day?

Dude a little while ago I soloed Mt Hood, got out of the ski resort in 2 hours (it wasn't groomed so I wore my 'pons ), AND I made it back to Eugene for 9am class. BAM!
