      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!

Seeking in Seattle

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I'm new in Seattle. Moved here for a man. Right now I have 4 friends including that man, 2 of whom ski. I'd love to make some new friends in this big city, and hopefully find a few more partners to ski and climb with before my current ones get really bored of seeing me every single weekend!

 

About me -- I'm a 35 year old woman and my idea of a good day includes wind, snow, and cold. Second best is sun, rock, and not too hot. I ski Janaks with Diamir Titanal 3 bindings and I love them. I don't love my boots -- an old pair of Denalis that are beginning to give me trouble -- but it's hard to find another boot that light and stiff. I love touring, I'm level I avalanche certified, and I ski every weekend plus sometimes midweek at night. Sadly I am a 9 to 5-er but it's not so bad, I am among the lucky who actually like their job. I ski resorts when the snow is sketchy and I tour when it isn't. I've been skiing for a pretty long time now and I'm pretty confident on most terrain. I guess I try to avoid mandatory air and figure elevens when possible, but a couple of times it happened and it all ended up OK. Most of all, I just like to get out with people who like to have fun, and I like a beer and some bourbon at the end of it all.

 

Besides skiing I like running, biking, and rock climbing. I love alpine rock! I also do a little ice climbing. I've only led WI3 and my hardest follow was WI4 so I'm what I would describe as "learning." Since I find most snow to be enjoyable, those moments that I can't ski and end up turning to the ice are fairly few and far between. I couldn't claim to be a strong ice partner, but I am a good belayer and I rarely get cold!

 

I have never tried to find a friend on the Internet, but I really do need partners and I really am cool, normal, and fun to hang out with (in my opinion). So I hope you won't be shy and perhaps you'll invite me to meet you and your friends for a beer some night and maybe we'll get along!

Hi, it's me again. I couldn't remember my username, so I posted using my old username -- which isn't my real name -- but this is my real name and I think it is oh-so-much cooler to use your real name than to hide behind a fake name, so I'm glad I found myself -- thank you to Google search for helping me in my quest!

Now I know I have no underlines, squiggles, dashes, hyphens, or capitals in my name!

Despite the touch of dissociative identity disorder, I can vouch that Moira is fun to hang out with, and is a good climber and a great skier. If you're hovering over the reply button, you should go ahead and click it.
