      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!

There is always a plausible explanation for everything...

...yea, that's from PDX'ers going to Calf. and bringing back holds to glue on their test pieces at the Gorge....

hey rob, i'm hoping you can test the rock-fall in the country. pm me for the exact location. this is all getting a little weird.

 

PM sent. I'll need a rope-gun. Speed is essential, we don't want the residue to wash off in the rain.

Thanks for the haste, but let's not overlook the need to get the block back in place.

 

PS: It's looking like Buckaroo will not be lending his engineering skills for this endeavor.

I came across a cougar (fully grown) at the country, as I was exiting the upperwall trail. about the begining of April.

Aren't all cougars full grown. Isn't that part of the criteria?

:lmao: POTD, fer sure! :hump:

Almost...this is a result of one PDXer trying to drill a rock pipe into the thing solo. You need a second to sit on it....

Mmmm....rock pipes....that would make for a much more interesting thread. Are there any the Cascade alpine?

I whole heartedly agree....... Someone spill the beans.

Where are the rock pipes and who will be the first to write the guide book?

I was looking around at the debris. I'm pretty confident that we could lift the majority of the ledge back, especially since the force of the blast broke it into smaller pieces. The presence of two bolt anchors above the ledge, and large tree anchors on the ground, is advantageous.

 

I have 100m of static line and about 50 meters of 1'' tubular webbing left over from a previous spelunking hobby. I'd be willing to donate it to the cause.

 

We'd probably need another 100m of static, and a couple guys on the ground to haul.

 

What sort of epoxy would be best? There would be pieces missing, but I'm pretty confident we could glue most of the big pieces back onto the ledge. It *is* flat, after all.

Actually,

 

I vote just to take up some wood and make some forms. Pour a new block out of concrete. It'll look close enough, and it will be easier. Let's pour back the block about 2 feet taller so the sketch is removed from that pitch.

I'll donate beer and whiskey, let me know the preferred brands.

Just rent/borrow a boom truck and lift that bitch right back in place. I'll lend some epoxy to keep her in place. And a fifth of Jameson Irish whiskey. (the key ingredient to all successful outdoor endeavors.)

I mean, you haven't even named the block yet. If you were a block how would YOU feel if everyone referred to you as "block." Blocks have feelings to you know. Fucking amatuers. I'll call her "Kathy". She needs our help you guys. Let's do this.

You can attempt to cement the block back into place, but weathering will probably loosen it before two long. Take a cue from WSDOT and bolt some cyclone fencing around it; much easier than deadmanning it into the wall. No specialized equipment required.

 

While you've still got the block conveniently on the ground, you might also consider bolting some additional holds onto it.

 

The addition of a bronze plaque commemorating the repair crew might also be in order.

Yes: If we can pool our collective together and have a slideshow/Memorium on the history of our friend Kathy the Block. She was a good friend to many and will be missed by all. I will bring hamburger meet and everclear. Someone else will need to bring a garbage can and fruit to make the Spode.

The other mega feature that will go soon (my guess is w/in ten years) is the large flake system that forms the lieback system to the anchors of Aborigine at Little Si...there is also a lot of climbing on that feature on the crossover from Californicator onto Technorigine...this system's gap has changed significantly over the course of the last ten years...

If a rock falls and there aren't third party witnesses, did it really fall?

 

Were there any mimes nearby?

If a rock falls in the mountains and no climbers are around to witness it, how many pages will it consume on cc.com?

genius :)

Let's hope not.
