      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!

Nice! Always fun to find adventure in one's backyard.

if there were any hikers up there - they were probably all staring at you in amazement. lol. but since it was ice/snow covered up there there probably wasn't too many people there.

 

none the less, looks like a cool trip!

Ummm . .. . yeah. I have seen several folks on this "FA" over the years, including "Git R dun" locals trying to impress their girlfriends.

 

 

But, I agree that all alone, in winter conditions, the haystack can feel like casting into the unknown. Good times!

"It may have been climbed before, and maybe even in winter. But not too much cause there was a ton of loose rock. The rock was covered with snow so finding placements was a little desperate in a couple places."

 

At least you didn't claim it was the newest alpine super classic, like so many other reported "FAs" on this site...

 

Way to get out there anyhow.

Maybe the "FA" part is an April Fools joke? I cannot imagine there is a square inch on the haystack that hasn't been climbed up and down.

Holy crap, this is pretty funny...

 

"That's not exactly true, they did climb that line, but they never reported it, so it's really an incomplete ascent..." in the monotone compu-voice! lol!

 

My publicist tells me not to worry about the little people...

Hey Gym, (nice moniker by the way), are you the guy who had that faux Doorish twitter account?

Faux Doorish Twitter account!? Wish I had thought of that one. I did find a possible Doorish relic last year - empty Jack Daniels bottle stamped 1984, located near some of his (un)reported FAs from that time period. DNA testing has been inconclusive.

Disclaimer: That vid's not my work, I've just seen it passed around through some folks in California (surprisingly). And I thought she said "blight" at the end?

Yeah, yeah. You can't really claim something is classic after one ascent though.

 

Have you seen this?

Damn, That was funny. A little to close to home for me though? The guys name was Blake!??

 

Um yeah. posted it on cascade climbers, aplinist...hmmm that does sound familiar. So who is this splitboarder character...
