      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!

Rating/Name of route on boulder near GNS

Recommended Posts

Thin Fingers is a real joy to climb, although it does climb like a 2x mellow 5.10 pitches separated by a short boulder problem. Compared to other .11s up there it feels fairly mellow.

there is nothing "definitive" about a guide... :rolleyes:

But it's definitive when you say the guide is wrong?

my bad...you are right...every guidebook is always right on everything...its not a guide, its a MANUAL and its printed in BLACK AND WHITE...

 

I'm telling you my opinion of what that route should be graded and most people that climb that route agree with me...

 

feel free to continue to rate it how you feel appropriate and i will continue to laugh at you...

I really don't care if you laugh at me or not. I could really care less. A guide is based on the consensus of a portion of the climbing community. Now in this particular case I think you're right about thin fingers I was just trying to make the point that the original guidebook had a 10d/11a grade on thin fingers.

Somes is in color nowadayz!

 

PS. The 50' handcrack on HOC is 10a. Compare it to any of the other 10a handcracks close by.

Also, try free-soloing GNS on a busy Sunday with a rope on your back, and a full rack clipped to your harness. Then video tape yourself on a 5.9 boulder problem. That would be sick!

Four cams and nuts isn't a full rack buddy.

 

Where I'm from, Four cams and nuts IS a full rack.

summit,

newsflash: the internet records all of your annoying gadfly tactics for the whole world to see for all eternity. Avatar anonymity is a sham as anyone with half a brain will eventually connect you to you. Try sharing some positive energy here and you may find partners and friends. Or you can just keep digging your hole deeper and end up a grouchy old geezer who hates bolts.

Golden rule...

cheers,

Radrigo

Since summit hasn't discovered the "spray" forum yet (literally, check his post history!), I'll take this moment to re-direct your attention to an excellent video and a fun game to try and guess who it's about.

 

And since you are adept at spraying encyclopedic volumes, you might want to spend some more time there in the future and spare the informative side of this website from being drowned in nonsense.
