      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!

I'll hook the masses up with my hero camera video in a minute.

 

I wonder if you would even be into climbing if it weren't for CC.com...

One major bit of advice: Don't clip the rope above you before you move on to a piece. If it blows (which is what you are protecting against in the first place), you just made your fall longer. Clip your pieces after you move to the next one.

Thanks malcom. What the video doesn't show is that I stopped doing that near the end of the climb. The gear down lower was like free-climbing gear-freakin bomber. Up higher it was more like typical aid gear, purple alien, 0 metolius, micro nuts, so I started to use actual aid techniques. Thanks for the input.

There is now a thread in spray for your posting pleasure....

 

Thank you so much Peter. Next time I come across a posting I don't like I'll be sure to PM you so you can edit it for me so that I find it more to my liking. I didn't realize the mods were doing this now!

 

Great job. Keep it up and you guys will be right up there with summit post!

I gotta say by the looks of it on this thread (over the last few days) and its duplicate in spray, the forum owners and moderators seem to know and placate their real audience.

 

Too bad as I think it just brings down the level of good info shared here.

mods=NO fun, boring, and apparently rather sensitive, shit I mean this post was a joke to begin with and now you mods have f'ed it up by splitting it it up. I wonder if you lassy's do this with all the books you read? Maybe borrow a book from the library and whiteout all the stuff you find offensive?

 

mods here is to you: :ass:

Hopefully summitchaser will continue sucking at aid climbing and full fill my dream of someone dying on A5... please wear your helmet cam so we can see the slab splatter fest! Wait, it will have to be an A3..

Wishing death upon a fellow climber is seriously wrong.

From Spray:

 

I should mention that nobody should take my advice on anything aid climbing related, I'm really bad at it and only use when I get shut down on free routes.

 

That said, when I fall ( seems to be the norm) and have to aid up a pitch to get my kit back, I like to rig up something like this. If the daisy whipper was a real worry you could put a screamer into this system where the daisy connects to the aider(?) Or if I'm in a real hurry, I'll skip the daisy entirely and treat the aiders like climbing holds. Sort of like dry tooling with and aider attached to the bottom of your tools, if you let go of the grab loop you fall back onto the rope just like a normal leader fall. Again, this is probably not going to work for hard aid, but I find it fast when on splitter cracks like City Park.

 

From this thread:

And seriously bigwalling? Don't you have better things to do than call for somebody's death? Go do some pull-ups or something. I'm actually trying to pick the corn out of this shit and learn to aid climb better.

as a bystander watching this i do feel suggesting someone's death when climbing is way over the line. i understand the aggro but come on, would you really be happy to see the video you joke about?

 

might not be your cup of tea for techniques but this is not hood in september with quickdraws on 6mm static utility line tied in nooses, sans helmet. even then i most certainly don't wish harm, just some learning and a good dose of humiliation.

Dude thank God someone sees the reality behind this. Seriously guys think about this. I didn't do shit! I defended myself logically against claims made against me. Anything else is just heresy.
