      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!

With my brother Carl (right) in Icicle Canyon, April 1984. Carl captioned this photo, "Kodachrome Climbers."

As evidence of my cheapskate tendencies, I still have (and use) those sweatpants. Good times...

Was fondling through some old slides and thought this one would be good as it was the center fold image for an issue of Summit back in the mid 80s.

Note the styling tube socks and chocks. And of course a Whillans harness!!

 

Hey Shapp recognize the rock?

Me on Karate, 1983. I think I had 3 cams back then, the rest were hexes and stoppers. PA rock shoes and white painter pants. Forrest swami, and home sewn leg loops.

My wife Sue at Smith, '82. Not many women climbers back then, I was one of the lucky ones.

My buddy Mark L., leading Son of Sam, Yosemite Apron 1982? with stoppers and Fierys. That thing is a *lot* easier with small cams.

Thanks.

Well hell yes, I have climbed 30 times probably, my favorite 30 foot route! although I thin 5.9+ is better (a little sandbag never hurt anyone, well maybe?)

Nastia, your genetically pre-engineered skill to bend like an April leaf should be handy on a variety of north western dihedrals. Your gender-specific skills may be very well advantageous on rock.
