      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!

Well this is kinda scary to watch

Holy crap. Darwin Award near miss.

And taking a video of the whole thing?!?!

Sketchy beyond words.

Watch the video carefully, the terrain is not very steep. He is dancing around with no hands and one foot in the ice.

Not saying he would not go for a ride but ... best left to a North Face Professional for click bait.

Yes, the go-pro nausea cam wide angle perspective thing. I was wondering how he was standing around there while fussing with stuff, it couldn't be a vertical wall like the video makes it appear. Still, this is one from the list of things I expect to never have to do.

I've been just as scared of falling on low angle slab as vertical or overhanging.  in fact, i think more so. i mean all three could be fatal, the last two just get it over quicker.

You're pretty much guaranteed to break both legs falling on low angle terrain with crampons.  If you survive, it would make for a fun crawl until you slowly die of exposure.....all by yourself in the winter.

No thanks.
