      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!

Rappelling down a chimney

Recommended Posts

I had to rap of a chockstone with a pack on just two weeks ago, and it was awkward as hell. The anchor was directly behind and above the chalkstone, and there was just empty space below the chalkstone, and the rock on the sides was all wet from snowmelt. Now tell me, what can you do? The quickest and safest solution at the time was to put my left hip against the chalkstone and lower about 2 feet, then I was good to go. No big deal. If I used the rock for those moves, I had a good chance of slipping.
