      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!

PDX Ice Festival 2010

Recommended Posts

Five years running!

 

Sunday September 26th at the Portland Rock Gym

 

Competition starts at 5 pm: be on time if you want to compete! We fill up every year and have to turn people away that show up late!

 

Gear demo and fondling starts at 6 pm. Demo new tools from Black Diamond, Petzl, Grivel and others!

 

Mr Aaron Mulkey will be doing the slideshow this year. Ever wonder what all the hype about Cody, Wyoming is? COME FIND OUT!

 

We will be raising $$$ for Hyalite and the Washington Climbers Coalition again this year. Bring some dollar bills and plan on winning some great prizes!

 

MOST IMPORTANTLY: FREE Adult Beverages! It's never too early to start carb loading for ice season :brew:

Looking forward to the slideshow. Let me know if I can help with anything, John.

 

Thanks! Will do!

 

Speaking of Aaron is going to do a longer version of the same slide show at the Mazamas Friday September 24th! I would highly recommend catching this one also if you're in town

I'm coming for more BOOTY (and a good cause)! I've been pretty happy with the raffle results, two years running... I may need to get a storage unit if I do as well this year. Knock on plastic holds on wood. ;)

Love Rick but I'll go $20 on the hound. Assuming Marcus and John are officiating this year of course and Layton stays with the Harem in SLC.

The hound was impressive, but Rick has been training on his apple tree in his backyard.

Does the comp work the same way as the one at stone gardens a couple years back? Everyone does any easier route the top times are the finalist?

Yes. High point and time on the prelim route will determine who does and doesnt go onto the finals. Men's and Women's divisions.

 

That said as far as comps go this is thee most informal comp you will find.

 

If you plan on competing bring your shoes and harness and some $ for an entry fee into the comp. If you prefer gloves or chalk or your own tools bring them. We have filled up the last few years running so if you show up at 6:30 and still expect to compete dont act surprised if we turn you away.

 

Bring some $$$ as we are raising money for the Washington Climbers Coalition and Hyalite!

Thank you for the heads up about the 24th. I'll check it out if we're in town.

 

By the way, congrats on your epic row time even though you missed a climbing opportunity. Win some, lose some. ;)

Thanks but I would argue epic would be a sub 17. Sub 18 for guys of my size is respectable at best. And rowing is for people scared of the AirDyne :laf:

Chalk? Does that mean I can free-climb the comp rout? Sweet!

The PRG was great enough to grant us permission to attach free hanging features to the wall this year! If you think you can dyno past a free hanging dagger I'll gladly let you try Nate!

 

That said I distinctly recall running into you in the Hyalite parking lot... dust off those tools and come on out! :wazup:
