      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!

What are your top 3 go-to climbing food items and why?

 

Oatmeal, because it's cheap and versatile.

Beef Jerky, for something to chew on.

Apple, for day trips.

talking alpine or craggin? your choices of oatmeal and apples don't point to any particular sport. who eats oatmeal while craggin? and apples in alpine?

 

alpine breakfast - fried bagels w oil and cheese and precooked bacon

alpine during day - lots of those cheap little granola bars, cheese, snickers, more bagels w salami

alpine dinner - lipton rice meals w chicken bag. more oil and cheese.

mentality of alpine - fat and carbs

jelly beans aka "redneck energy gels"

 

bodybuilders weightgainer powder - a 1000 calorie serving of hot chocolate, with abundant electrolyte profile -- I've done entire weekend alpine trips on this and nothing else

 

stovetop dressing -- just add hot water & jerky, tuna, or whatever -- cheap no-cook meal

This is the stuff I almost never bring back out of the hills (i.e. I eat it first):

 

Landjaeger

Cheese

Dark Chocolate (w/ nuts, caramel, sea salt, or whatever)

Ramen noodles (don't judge)

dried fruit

Whiskey/Scotch of any type

 

I always bring way too many bars, especially on long trips. Real food is where it is at.
