      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!

Trip: Hyalite - The Days of Jack

 

Date: 3/25/2010

 

Trip Report:

Thanks largely in part to the Family Leave Act of 1993 I loaded up my new and improved family and headed to Bozeman to enjoy some late season ice climbing before they closed the road. Some pics:

 

First Taco Bus: Dillon, MT

Dribbles with Drew: climbers right of the kayaker finish

I wear a diaper under my action suit so I dont have to stop to pee because I am so light and fast! AlpineStyle4life!

Ran into Donn and Rodney @ the Royal 7 (but of course!); they were gracious enough to let me tag along one day and shoot pics!

 

Donn likes them apples

Rodney likes them apples too

The red pill or the blue pill? Rodney on the Matrix

Upon retirement most gentlemen relocate to warmer places and take up shuffleboard or golf. Or sit around and bitch on the internet about "the good old days of climbing" :grlaf:

 

Not Donn. :rawk::rocken:

Right on John.

As a father to be I find this post quite inspiring!

Thanks for sharing and kudos to the hard man 9 week old in the open bivy. Love that!

Love the lil Patagonia ruggermatic he's wearing.... :lmao:

 

So cool you guys are getting out! I was doing rental houses back then, remember propping my daughter (now 24 years old!) in a bassinet in the corner so I could paint, much better to get the lil one outside.

That's his action suit Bill! Or as I call it "the poop sack" :laf:

 

We're still doing rentals too... we just havent included him in our slum lord activities... yet :)

What tools are you getting him John?

 

I'm hoping he has the sense to pursue something else but if he does decide to give it a go Ill likely start him on the lightest shortest tool they make... I believe Grivel makes a lil'monster that would be appropriate :)

How many of us start out with a $500 bivy/belay jacket? Jack obviously knows how to sort his gear already!111.gif

 

The mutant at an early age...he won't require tools!

Awesome, way to get it done. Matrix/Cave&Gully is one of the cooler looking slots on that side of the canyon in my opinion.

We actually considering bring the B.O.B. on that trip but dont have a ski attachment so we opted for the carry.
