      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!

I heard that some people pay for help carrying loads to Camp Muir. Does anyone know about this?

My name is Porter, and I object to my name being associated with work. And I'm not carrying your load up to Muir. Do it yourself. rolleyes.gif

In the Tetons (if i remember correctly), Exum pays porters $100 per load to the upper saddle. What a great way to finance the summer at the climbers ranch!

I doubt if rmi does this, as they probably have their jr guides do it. (just a guess though)

why all the way to the upper saddle, would think they'd drop loads at the lower??

You're right, that chap bchaps probably meant the Lower Saddle. I've made that mistake more than once in describing the place as Upper. There is no reason to porter supplies up to the Upper Saddle. Not the best place to camp (though certainly not impossible).
