Not much to say other than the Cascades kick ass! Monster peaks/lines/approaches to be had. The place is gorgeous. We got a good sample of everything but the deep. A little high pressure to start the week followed by rain and breakable crust at the end. Great trip, big shout out to Ale Capone for being our guide and letting us crash at his place, oh and providing some tasty food and morning joe to clean out de bowels :thumpsup: . Let me know if I can ever return the favor amigo. Sorry we didnt meet up with you other cascadians, hopefully next time as this was just a taste. :disco: Here are some pics. http://www.forrestthorniley.com/washington%202011.htm February 9, 2011 at 9:54 pm #636349 EasternAssociate 16 Posts WOW! :drool: February 9, 2011 at 10:15 pm #636350 bones get broke 298 Posts This TR is So money! ………..Also, Ronaldinho The Brazillian Soccer Star is comming back next week, so should you.

The guys where great guests and it was my pleasure. Just happy to return the favor to Gary. Gald we where able to eek out a handful of good days. They really toughed it out and get the full spectrum of good to bad. the house seems so empty now. I need to choose some pics to go on the walls.
