      Thanks for visiting Cascadeclimbers.com.   Yep, we are still going!    Just put a new coat of paint on the site. Still the same old community of climbers, skiers, and people who love to get outdoors. Hope you had a great 2021, and wish you the best for 2022 and beyond.  Thanks again for stopping by.

Fall/self rescue/aided rescue on Cannon Mtn

Recommended Posts

The older I get the more I think it is a no-brainer to carry a PLB, solo or not. 

I would suspect Ryan is now in that camp as well.

I'm a PLB guy now. Used to scoff at them, but now I just consider it an extra margin. Still need to have other safety systems in place, but when used in conjunction with a designated reporter, would significantly incrase the chance of a timely rescue.

Good on the guy, ya gotta do what needs to be done. As for the PLB I have carried one for about 7 years now. I figure it is the tool of last resort.
