Miss my home crag

Post by Giggle » Sat Apr 15, 2006 1:04 pm

Hey everyone (who remembers me), I am the one who got bit by a snake a few years back at Roadside..... :shock: ..I think that is the last time that I posted. Ray..congrats on the new guidebook! I have not been back to the Red since I moved to Washington 2 years ago. But I read articles all the time in Mags... Sounds like a lot is happening down there.
I haven't done much climbing since I have moved here....I haven't even been to Squamish yet! I currently manage a climbing gym, The Vertical World, and am still involved. I definately miss the feeling of community at the RRG.
Thanks!
Giggle <Chessa>

Hey Chessa! Welcome back and thanks for the update! I think we may have seen you just before you moved because that was about two years ago. Glad to hear you're doing well.

Take care!

Hey you two...Ya Michelle I ran into you and Ray about 2 yrs ago. I have gotten married since then....and have started a great life in a small town outside of Tacoma. Ya, Squamish is the talk of the town. I hope to make it down to the Red next time I am in the area. Can't wait to see all the changes. The local rock isn't even comparable. But granite is very close by!
Take care you 2,
~Chessa

I have taken 7 trips to the Pacific Northwest and have done quite a bit of climbing out your way. A couple of places I would highly recommend checking out are Mazama Rocks east of North Cascades Nat'l Park & Skaha Bluffs in Penticton, BC. A former RRG climber, Paul "Woody" Woodrum, did a bit of development @ Mazama. Skaha is a wonderful area with 400+ routes both sport & trad.

Good to hear from you. Sucks you are not climbing more. Any long term side effects from the copper head bite? I hope not. I'll tell the Dayton folks about your post. Are you going to make it to Smith Rocks with Gennavie in a couple of weeks?

Hey Marty...
No side affects at all, thankfully... Just memories. That pic freaked me out! UGH! Thanks for that, alien! :shock:
No, I don't think I will go out to Smith in a few weeks. I have not been climbing enough to go down there and climb. It would kick my butt.

Captain static, I have heard of Mazama Rocks, but not the other. I am fairly close to Vantage and Index...people talk about those 2 places a lot. Thanks for the input...

Sure I remember ya from back in the day! Still got great pics of that kywilderness BBQ up on the Big Country ledge. We've never had another cookout...SOMEONE chucked the grill off.
I see they are still lopping off mountains in Eastern Kentucky. Electricity isn't cheap.

I'd let you have my weiner but it's too big to fit on the grill. Hell I go into hypovolemic shock everytime a pretty girl walks by.

biner I would tell you to "get a grip on it" but i am afraid to.
i would tell you to "put a sock in it" but you would. I could tell you to hijack this thread ,but they will stop you.
I try to be a good man but all that comes
of trying is I feel more guilty.
