      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!

Wow. Lucky to survive that one.

Looks like a very quick rescue by the NPS.

Wonder if they had a sense that the snow was soft on the approach to the lower Nooksak Tower, BEFORE turning back from soft snow that dropped down to the Price Glacier? I could see anyone descending from the Tower late in the afternoon after the rappels to feel relieved to be back on the snowfield and just want to power down back to camp or car, unaware or too tired to care about the avalanche danger, and getting hit by a similar slide. Man, those guys were lucky. That's a long way to get dragged. Could have been much worse. Sobering example of spring slide potential. Thanks for posting!

Definitely lucky, although it seems the decision to bail was the correct one. Thanks for the share
