      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!

Sweet!!!!!

 

You left me hanging..... did you send the A5?

 

What I liked best was no fist pumping boulder topouts, no flexing or screaming, no dry humping the rock on a FA. Just strait up hard climbing.

Not yet waiting for cool dry weather.... the overhanging crack thing is actually way harder then the slab, just not runout....

WOW!!! How do you free and A5 pitch?!?!?!!?!

 

 

haha, aid climbing and free climbing grades really have nothing to do with each other, an A5 pitch could be an entire ropelength of hooking on sketchy flakes that could really go free at a moderate grade (just with no reliable pro) while an A1 pitch could be all small wires and microcams in a splitter crack that is too thin for tips. An A0 pitch is probably just a bolt ladder with no holds that wont go free at all!

 

 

Just look at Leo Houlding's route 'The Prophet' on El Cap. The crux pitch that went at 13d R was an 'A1' thin crack.... while some A4 pitch went at 5.11d just with no pro....

I doubt Chris would have said that was an A5 pitch! He is a humble and very cool guy!

 

Keep it up Marc! You are doing some cool looking stuff.

I hope someone will pass along some positive feedback and encouragement to Cody. This short is definitely high quality, with good audiovisual story telling, good music, and money climbing shots.

 

And here's hoping Marc has a great fall season at Squish and that some of it gets captured on film to inspire us mortals.
