      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!

Proposed changes to Mt. Rainier guide services

Recommended Posts

The most controversial part of this plan is the guided climbing. I think it is important to not forget there was also wilderness and alpine wilderness guiding proposals too in the commercial services plan.

 

 

I thought proposal 3 was the best proposal; however, I recommended they change it slightly. The regulations on guiding/guiding areas/# of guided people should only be restricted from May 1 to September 30th. From Oct 1 to April 30 there should be no restrictions on anybody.

Newstips - I think this would make a good story. Sure there are other more important issues to climbers, but those issues are probably not as interesting to the general public. It seems to me that any story focusing on any aspect of Mt. Rainier get the attention of the viewers, because it is such an icon of the state.

The mountain is crowded and more guides mean more people... at least keep them on the south side and leave the Emmons for private climbers so we still have an area to be away from the guided masses and long lines up the mountain.
