      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!

Like?  Land mines?  Any fencing will be no issue for this person.  The had an alarm system with cameras, which didn't seem to help.  This person is quite skilled at creating mayhem, and I don't doubt that they will strike again, maybe in a way that they aren't expecting (depending on the counter measures). 

Like a :pagetop:, they have my reluctant respect.

This was clearly the work of someone with strong beliefs that the gondola should not exist in Squamish. Clearly it should relocated to Cascade River Road to deliver climbers to a big alpine hut in Boston Basin.

We need it on USFS controlled ground if we are ever to have enough bunks!

well they could make it less easy to get up the pole?  install raging honey badgers ontop every pole?  or maybe just a guard(with a leashed honey badger)  up and down the cable way.  or let it run 24/7?

I personally think Jason's suggestion of land mines is definitely the solution here.

Fuck land mines. You ever spend time around those, and you will not even want to joke about it.

You're right that this would be an obvious next step.  May slow them down enough to have an effective response to an alarm trigger?
