      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!

Book help needed

That is BS!

If IsolationedSnow (Summitchaser) doesn't want to read your posts or answer questions then he does not have to, but I know there are plenty of people here who have and are willing to help.

You have been gracious enough to give back by being willing to support the Mountain Rescue Calendar cause and you have always been appreciative and unobnoxious in your requests for information.

The same can not be said for IsolationedSnow in either regard.

Keep asking questions at will and do not apologize for doing so.

Just my unsolicited opinion.

IsolationedSnow/Summitchaser, you're still a douchebag.

Cowering behind a new avatar doesn't change that fact, infidel.

Not a threat. You just strike me as an Internet tough guy. I definitely am not a fighter but if I needed to I could do some damage.

 

I think this new avatar is broken. It says exactly the same crap as the last one. You should return it.

Hell, no! I got shamed into removing that "sobo update" after his last post.

I don't want to be shunned by the cc.com community... :noway:

Need some backstory help. Not sure how much of this will make it into the book, but I need to figure out where my hero would have gone if he'd spent a couple years rock climbing and not really doing anything else (wealthy family so assuming money wouldn't have been an issue). I'm guessing he would have spent time in Yosemite. Joshua Tree, too? Anywhere else? Thanks.

 

Forgot - not sure if it's possible, but could he have learned some technical rigging skills during this time? That would come in very handy storyline wise.

You can road trip for a couple of years without being wealthy! In that sort of time you can hit Tuolumne and the eastern Sierra, Tetons, Boulder Canyon, Wind Rivers, City of Rocks, South Platte/Turkey Rocks, Devil's Tower, Vedauwoo, Eldorado Canyon, Lumpy Ridge, the Valley, Red Rocks, JTree, Indian Creek and desert towers in southern Utah, Zion, the North Cascades, Squamish, Oak Creek Canyon and Cochise Stronghold in Arizona, Hueco Tanks, the Organ Mtns in New Mexico, etc etc.

Thanks DPS and tanstaafl. I'll use your posts to put together an itinerary of his travels. Some of these spots I've heard of. Some I haven't. Can't wait to research the new places :)

If you need your character to economize, there are some great threads on dirt-bagging here somewhere in the archive.

 

Don't think Willstrickland is dirt-bagging it any more, but he seemed to be a wealth of info on the topic.

 

The only one of his pointers I can remember is something about all Taco Bell (?) franchises having locking restrooms, thus permitting you to use the sink and paper towels for bathing purposes without alarming other patrons, or paying for a shower.

 

Not sure if you'll have your character going down that path - but the info's there if you need it.

Typically circus rigging is more nautical than what climbers use. Also I have some friends who are circus performers and it’s not an outdoorsy crowd. Make him a NOLS dude. Cavers are familiar with rescue rigging if they are a trip leader since they need to show some sort of credential to a ranger to get the key to a vertical cave. Or he could be a canyoneer since there is also an emphasis on small party rescue. But if hes hanging around all the cool climbing spots then I'm sure he would know a few tricks.

The tagline of this you tube video is Team 11 digs into the hogsback. Any idea where on the hosgback this could be? Looking for general location and approximate altitude. Nothing exact. Thanks!

That is on the northwest side of the hogsback. Elevation is 10,500'

No no no Iain- you were capped early in the first book. It's not logical that you could then later be in the movie. :whistle:

 

Sorry G-spotter, I killed off Iain in the first book.

Thanks, Iain! :kisss:

 

BTW, there's an orange coat in the prologue of the first book ;)
