      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!

Looks like Index wins?? And by the looks of the weather forecast (so far)looks like a cold front coming through on Saturday which would mean sunday around noon sounds like a good bet? Who is all up for that? Carpooling? I live in the north end if anyone wants a lift and knows where we are going PM me. Any other Idea's?

I may trundle little brown puppies at you but I draw the line at touching their turds you sick bastard! [Confused]

 

Why is everybody so scared of climbing in the rain out here? You eliminate about 50% of the year if you don't. Oh yeah, that right, most of you are Cali/Colo transplants. It helps if you take some "meds" prior to climbing. Animals!

Think you're only 15' above your last placement and look down to find it fell out when you climbed past it and now you are 30' above a rusty fixed pin? That, dude, is OOGITY FUCKIN BOOGITY!

 

YOU ARE OOGITY FUKING BOOGITY CAVEMAN! ITS HARSHNESS IN ALL IT'S GLORY MAN!!! WHOOO HOOO!

Okay, Sunday at Index it is. Lambone, Greg W, Cap'n, are you guys still in to help coach? Chepe's loadin bowls and Lee and I will buy pitchers after [big Drink]

 

I have a hunch Lee's done his homework like I have [big Grin] What I hope to get out of this is some critiquing on rigging belay anchors and some tricks of the trade you guys will hopefully pass on [Wink]

 

If this works out successful, maybe we can take Wallstein up on his offer to run a self rescue clinic in December. I'd certainly be up for that. Mike, you rock [rockband]

I don't know about Cavey and the others, but I won't be there. I'll be busy putting down a potentially violent rebellion of the great wapiti in Southeastern Oregon.

 

I'd be down for this type of outing another time, though.

Toast, seems like we may be losing our instructors for the day. I am still in though as like you say "practice makes perfect". I think the key though is not having a big enough rack? I have a few pieces and may pick up a couple more if needed. Let me know if you are still interested, otherwise I may try an alpine like ingalls, or argonaut depending on the weather.

Lambone PM'd me that he's in, but he'd prefer to have a few more of us out there. I dunno, I think a 2:1 ratio is about right... of course, another body would balance us out into two nice pairs. Any takers? [Wazzup]

Saturday works for me... but we better finalize this pretty quick. Today's Friday [Wink]

 

For the sake of expediency, I propose meeting Saturday at 10:00 AM at the base of Index Town Wall. If we get our shit together, maybe we can get a real climb in too.

 

Pipe up, who's in?

Sure, now we have an even pair... at least I think we do with Lambone, Leejams, you and me.

Gotta hear back from the two of them still.

Sounds like a plan, I am in as well. Just checked the weather forecast, could someone explain to me what the difference is between periods of rain (saturday) and showers (Sunday)? Is this so the forecaster's are not to redundant?? This is Seattle in November why don't they just give up and say this months forecast is possibly wet on a daily basis?
