      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!

Road trips?

Recommended Posts

Not the holidays, but I'm headed to Vegas in February for work and play at Red Rocks. It may be cold, but should be fun.

Nope, never been. Haven't really climbed sandstone, save Peshastin; so, I'm kind of excited. Have a few ideas on climbs to do, but always welcome input.

Mike theres a reason you got 1 star right there: dogmatic statements like "Road trips are for spring/summer".

 

Ever hear of THE ROCKIES, ICE CAPITAL OF THE UNIVERSE???? Try climbing PolarCircus in spring/summer.

Or, for that matter, ever hear of Red Rocks, where it's sixty mofuggin' degrees in December and sunny like Malibu? Damn straight, homie! Road trips are for getting the hell out to someplace new or someplace different from the norm, to better weather or better conditions, for music- and caffeine-fueled epic drives, for days of climbing, and all manner of other goodness. But for Spring and Summer only? You're hosing yourself and good if you stick to that philosophy!

 

Now go pack the car and get the hell outta here, and don't come back til you've racked up at least 2,000 miles and some raw fingertips! Scoot!

Outta here now! Off to Bend for a couple days of work - and get in a couple of pitches at Smith. Then to Montana to tele-ski and search for ice. Belieze in February, JTree in March.

I'm going to Joshua Tree. Never climbed there before, unless you count the camping trips I did when I was 7 years old in Y Indian Guides. We used to scramble all over those rocks in our Vans tennis shoes. Somehow none of us got worse than a skinned knee. It should be fun and interesting.

I see a distinct difference b/w the two as well Mtnr Michael. Usually a drive to climb is a weekend, but if I am spending vacation time or a week or so that either you have to drive for long hours for or fly in a plane, I would count that as a road trip. Doesn't have to be in warm weather. Excellent ice to be had up in BC during Feb and I probably would not "drive to a climb" for that but "ROAD MUTHA-FUCKIN' TRIPPIN'" for that one. Ideally, I dream of an endless summer (or endless winter for you tele/ice climbers out there) - one continuous road trip around the world climbing in both hemispheres and dirt-bagging it for a solid year. Anyone wanna dream with me! Or better yet, pay for me to go with them? I'll bring 5 of you with me if I win Powerball tonight. Stay tuned.... bigdrink.gif
