      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!

Vesper Peak question

Recommended Posts

Did anybody climbing the north face of Vesper after Sam Sayers went missing notice this object photographed in late October?  It seems to be located on the north face a pitch or so above the major traverse ledge and to the west of the Weigelt corner.  The photo was taken from the Ragged Edge, and there are some (who I don't agree with) who feel this may be Sam's remains.

She went missing August 1st. SAR flew their chopper over that area, and then a horde of wannabe heroes flew drones with cameras all over that area. Plenty of climbers went out to do the routes in the area over the following months. I haven't been up near the Vesper summit in a while, but I'm very confident that's not SS's body.  The SS rescue crowd is really wacky (go read it on FB), so I bet some of them will hold out hope and try to 'rescue' that photoshopped red blob.

I must have been living under a rock, never heard of Sam Sayers. Phew, that's some time I'll never get back.

Dude!!! Have you been doused in ketamine for the last six month?   

I wish I had never gone anywhere near Vesper Peak and helped in my own little way into turning that corner of the Cadcades into a total shit show.

But.... The idea that she was taking a selfie and fell off the standard north face route seems entirely plausible.  No way that red thing is still there by spring.  Too bad,  hard to believe no one checked it out.  Could be clothing, back pack something else that got hung up.
