      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!

best of cc.com I made an amazing geologic discovery!

Screw slot canyons let's talk amazing planetary discovery

 

Planet-9 is in our back yard

 

But this is a non-discovery. The wobble data predict a planet-like object with the mass range indicated, but they haven't found it yet! Maybe it's in Central Orygun...

(I will not be a dick about it though and will keep quiet for now).

 

Not really

 

I am 100% positive this is the gorge along the South Fork North Fork Breitenbush River, north of Mount Jefferson. Location is here: 44.76501, -121.83194

Definitely not somewhere that anyone casual is going to get into.

 

:wave:

 

You mean some of the neanderthals around here look at other websites? That's pretty funny.

"Maybe you have been there before and if so we can rename it "Genepires Canyon."

 

My vote is for Gene Pires Canyon. He's been posting on CC.Com for years now and probably has earned to have an amazing geological feature named after him.

I thought renames only occur for remembrance of dead folk. I ain't planning on dieing soon unless Chris manages my demise in banff.

 

how about a Wolf Bauer Canyon? He rocks and deserves!

I think Darin nailed it the first time around. I'm sticking with Hyperbole Canyon.

 

The funny part (to me) is that if this is the same spot detailed over on NWhikers, it is only a mile or two from a road. Not exactly really far into the middle of nowhere. Rugged yes, but a far cry from the "Pole of remoteness" that Mr. Roper so aptly named and Mr. Wallace so aptly soloed. No fanfare, no T.V. show with that "discovery".

 

But, I certainly agree, Hyperbole Canyon looks beautiful. OFG looks have done a great job with filming the segment as well.

Wow, over 16,000 views here and another thread following this one over at NW Hikers! With so many people who must have already been into the depths of Valhalla I am surprised that no one has posted any photos that they took there... Even Mr. Waterfall Survey Sorefeet hasn't posted any close up photos of the waterfalls there (but he has seen it on Google Earth).

 

If Sorefeet is correct (and I am not saying he is not), and from the topo map posted at NW Hikers; if that is Valhalla there is a road only a mile or so to the northeast. That's the same road that goes to Breitenbush Lake, where thousands of people have been. It looks like a person could just start from that road and hike straight down and through the canyon.

 

Just a few more days and this mystery will be over.

I CAN'T HANDLE THE SUSPENSE ANY LONGER.

 

I HAVE LOOKED AT THIS PAGE 15,687 TIMES BUT I STILL DO NOT KNOW WHERE THE CANYON IS.

Is that the same as being stoked? Or "SUPER STOKED"? In climber jargon, is there any state higher than being SUPER STOKED?

Maybe scientist aren't 100 percent on Planet 9 but there's stuff in Oregon they are sure of

You're off in the hills looking at slot canyons when you could be digging in random locations around town. Think about what could be out there

When this thread began - you mentioned it was an 8-9mile technical bushwhack. Now it's sounds like there is a road about 1 mile or so to it. Nice - and here I thought it would be more difficult than looking for the Renton Granite.

That is like the 'roadside climbing' for drive-up belay from the car bumper, that us Neanderthal hfc climbers like - I love those short approaches.

:yawn:

Gene is awesome and it would be awesome to name it after him, but I'm glad Hyberbole Canyon was found. What a great discovery! What are the coordinates? I can tag it on Google Maps and start a petition to make sure no one tries to tag it with some Norse nonsense that has already been over used.

In my original post I never said it was 8 to 9 miles. I said it took 7 hours (not miles) to get to our base camp. From there it takes another three hours to get to the slot canyon. On that first trip we tried a different route on the way back out from the base camp and that way was much better, in fact it cut four hours off of the hike.

SEVEN HOURS!!!???

 

No wonder it hadn't been discovered. I never get even 7 minutes from my television.

I have agreed several times in this thread that the words in my original post were overly enthusiastic and hyperbolic (let go - move on). I thought people would be glad to hear about a place like I found. But I've since learned that on this site, unless you give out photos, details, coordinates, and in a certain way (and right now), that many members here will pout, ridicule and criticize every possible aspect of the whole story, including my motives for bringing it forward. I get it that you hard core climbers have your own culture (I wonder if some of you have ever experienced anything really hard core). I know there are many cool people here, but at times this forum reminds me of petty Jr. high school BS.

 

And now, Oly Climber, with no part whatsoever with any investment in this discovery, wants to start a petition to name it something else.

Not a single hit for a feature named "Hyperbole" in the Summit Post database.

Go ahead and bury your discovery in obscurity behind all the other mountains, caves, glens, moores, canyons, and lakes called "Valhalla". Such a tired and overused name.

 

But I do have an investment! I lived the hype around its discovery! I clamored for details, waited on baited breath. And now....a slot canyon named "Valhalla". Meh, pretty uninspiring, even if it is a cool chunk of nature. I'm sure you were not the first human to traipse it, and while your "investment" grants you the right to name it, it does not (apparently) appear to compel you to be original.

 

For me, it will be, and always has been....HYPERBOLE CANYON and is another chapter of the rich history of CC.com.

I applaud you for not only your discovery of Hyberbole Canyon, but also your circus-like reveal, and of course...for this entertaining thread.

haha you said it explorer. I'm supremely entertained, CC doesn't seem to get this type of exchange so often these days where all sorts of people pile on the silliness outside of spray. But you should just shrug it off and trust your gut, don't let jokers cause you consternation. The OFG uptake and investment from your pitch is all the validation necessary. As someone who loves teasing people, the best response to neuter flippant people is to not respond.

Water, thanks for putting into perspective. I am still learning about this strange climber culture. I have learned a few new terms here like "beta", "stoked" and "SUPER STOKED!!!." I haven't learned what "spray" means though. As far as neutering some of the flippant people, from their tone and the way they pile on, I would bet that they have already been neutered which explains the way they are.

AT LEAST IT WAS A HARDCORE VASECTOMY. I HURT FOR WEEKS.

I still haven't had that done, so I'm full on still capable of impregnating women.

But I would catch hell with my wife if I did, but at least it makes me a worthy internet forum poster.

I will donate a twenty spot to the first CC.com expedition who (post-reveal of course) posts a TR of Hyperbole Canyon and plants a flag with this name on its shores. Must have pictures to prove the conquest.

 

If it is all of that (and I sincerely hope it is!), then I may do it myself.
