      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!

Winter Climbing Partners

Recommended Posts

If any of you are interested in a low key, happy, fun (but challenging) cragging trip down in J this winter Jan and/or Feb, PM me! Let's get some folks together and start some plans!

 

I'm planning on renting a van down there too.

 

I'm just starting to lead so if you're OK with doing most leading it may be fun for all.

 

In the meantime, if you're in Leavenworth this October send me a PM to climb DURING THE WEEK ONLY (no weekends).

 

No psychopaths and no booty calls. Booty calls--especially from guys with SO's and children--are grounds for, "I think you are an ignorant pig no matter HOW good a climber you are." Thanks.

I work 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off all year long. So I'll stay down there for 2 weeks (~12 days) at a time this winter. We can overlap too. So I can get down there for 2 weeks leave, then come back in 2 weeks. If that makes sense...

 

I have trad gear (BD plus 2 new ropes--one for top rope and one for lead Edelweiss and Mammut). I even have a BD cam number 4!!

 

If Red Rocks works, that's an option, too.

 

:)

Good question (This really is not spray mods)

 

No, Ben, I'm not at all. *woof* I am, however, very positive, stable, no drama, very fit and SAFE but am a beginner climber who wants to CLIMB A LOT this winter and looking for other climbers who climb better than I and who have the time off.

 

I have all my own gear.

PrincessWookie, I'm a mom who works part-time and am looking for other women to hike/scramble with through the winter here in the PNW. Prefer weekdays over weekends (weekends are family time). I'm currently making my way through the Home Court 100. I realize this isn't exactly what you posted about, but I've had such a hard time finding other women to hike/climb with - particularly for mid-week outings - that I thought it'd be worth asking if you're interested. I'm not a psychopath, not a booty caller, don't care what you look like. PM me if you're interested!

I'm a mid week climber, lead trad. I would probably be interested in some Leavenworth in October and a trip south in the winter. Most likely not for two weeks, but a week is easy.

I also have mid week days off looking to get down to jtree/red rocks throughout the gray sky season (with the option to fly down to meet up a bunch) I am very motivated to climb a lot, and i have trad gear and lead moderate routes. Sounds like we could get some serious climbing in. I also struggle finding fellow female climbers mid-week. We should chit-chat....

Cool Ragner. :cool:

 

Right on...I have 3 weeks off in October, so we should hook up

 

Yeh I couldn't climb for weeks on end right now. I'm still breaking in my fingers and developing my "climber calluses." I climbed for 4 days up in Squamish and my fingers were getting raw and bleeding that I really had to stop. I LOVE IT THOUGH! RAWR!

 

If anyone is up at Burgers and Fries in Squamish and see blood on the routes.....it's mine. Sorry.

like I keep saying - I drive a school bus in Leavenworth, so I'm available weekdays from 0830 to 1430. in winter the Icicle and Tumwater canyons turn into entertaining mixed-climbing gyms...

I might be looking for partners for a Red Rocks outing Oct. 16-19 (still fine tuning the dates) so feel free to give me a shout if you plan to be in the neighborhood around then (I'm doing my own thing with travel and accommodation.) I'm pretty familiar with the place and hoping to hit some moderate multipitches (5.8 - .10b) with safe, positive, experienced partners who'd like to swing leads.

I'm interested in finding Red Rocks partners for Oct 7 - 13. Multi-pitch moderate trad, sharing leads. Solid 5.7-5.9 leader.

 

Also, I'm up for midweek hiking/scrambling this fall, out of the Seattle area.

 

Send a PM if interested!

Momcat and Sherri should be friends! Hope you guys hooked up and made fun plans for a NV fall trip.

 

THANKS Sherri for the invite, I already bought plane tickets from work in AK to home in WA for the months of Oct and Nov, so maybe after Dec?

 

If you guys are back around Oct 17-20 we should meet up!

Hey Dina, just replied to your email. Sorry for the delayed response. Maybe we can hit up Squamish again when you're back, if the weather is nice? Never managed to make it up there this summer, and I'm really itching for it!

I will be pretty open this winter to climb, I am familiar with JTree and have climbed there and red rocks a fair amount. I will be working on finishing my thesis for my masters which leaves my schedule pretty flexible this winter.
