      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!

[TR] Monte Carlo - Stupid in Monte Carlo 5/23/2015

Recommended Posts

He loves climbing in a three or rope soloing long routes and has a strong belief that if you know what you are doing with modern equipment you can get up some surprising things without being strong or talented.

 

Great little tale.

A great tale of Monte Carlo! I backpacked there on a Eurailpass in 1980, staying only for the day. I was too scruffy to be admitted to the casino. Food prices were astronomical. Adnan Khashoggi had his 365 foot yacht "Christina" moored ouside the breakwater. Some yachts had tiny cars on deck that could be lowered by davit to the dock.
