      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!

Rope for glacier?

Recommended Posts

I'd still use an 8mm on Rainier or any other major peak in the Cascades for glacier slogs. I used an 8.8 mm for Denali and didn't think twice about it.

Not complaining about the size, but the fact that it's static. I've never caught an actual crevasse fall. I have fallen into a slot before and was surprised at how far I went. That was on a 9mm. Just seems like the initial pull would be a lot higher w/ a static line.
