      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!

Poor Me.

Recommended Posts

Its been so long since I've had a good climbing trip, also the reason i quit, had a few to many crappy ones in a row. But im glade and a bit jealous to see alot of the same names still cranking. and guys like Blake, kicking butt. i remember when he first moved to Bellingham.

 

now as I sit here bored as hell with a surgically repaired Achilles reading TR's I wish I had Climbed more and as the title states, Poor Me.

Hope you guys get in some good climbs this weekend.

Both shoulders are trashed. Doing a lot of hiking recently myself. Have lapped the easy SE corner 2 times recently which has been it and maxing and taxing as far as climbing: other than hiking in to get some Plaidman shots doing his new route. Tomorrow I'm going to try to hike into a new cliff that has no routes on it. Might be a reason for that:-)

 

How did you tear it? I wouldn't trade a rotator cuff for an Achilles, you have my sympathy: hope you heal up fast!

 

opps, obligatory Plaidman shot from a bit back, he's higher now:

Partial tear playing basketball. then fully tore it 6 months later at work. i had to jump off a piece of equipment, that was falling over, was only about 2-3 ft in the air, but i came down hard on the bad leg.

thanks for the suport i hope you get healed up fast to. I have about 4 weeks before i can walk without assistance or a boot. then i hope to get into some hiking before the weather gets to terrible, I think it would be good rehab.

Hi Whirly! nice to see you post.

 

I'm on semi permanent IR so I feel your pain. I'm happy with a short pitch now and again and nice long walk.

 

Hope your achilles heels fast!!!

Maybe while you're at it you can get together and compare your vaginas too.

 

Mine's the biggest.

 

Whazzup Wirlwind! Try having kids, it's like an achilles that will never heal.

Gimme a break, I climbed all through the "kid years". Bring 'em along, they love playing in the dirt and chasing lizards. It's only a little hard when they are babies, you just need a third who doesn't mind kids while the wife climbs.

 

We carried my son out to Leavenworth and Squamish at 5 weeks. Babies are a lot tougher than people think.

Yupe My X and I did this. We let him bring along whatever toys he wanted and stuck to mostly single pitch stuff. NOw if II could get my shoulder healed he'd be an awesome belay buddy.
