      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!

It seems like British climbers and oregon climbers might share a predilection for choss.

We had a case here (Garden of the Gods) where a climber blew a perfectly placed cam. Rock shattered but luckily the glued in monster bolt saved his ass. Guy was an idiot though and climbed right after a afternoon rainstorm (turns the sandstone to paste).

 

Looks like it might be pretty wet around the anchor.
