Profanity in the CAG

Recommended Posts

Fred tells me that his unedited text for the new edition of Cascade Alpine Guide Vol III contains the word "fuck". He suggested I post here and ask people whether they think the Mountaineers Books will edit it out or not. yellaf.gif

They'll never allow that in the published book. That's just a "gateway" word. Before you know it, that CAG will end up reading just like this website if they let that happen.

Did he tell you why "fuck" was included? A new route name? Although I think they'd delete it, I think it should be included as profanity is a great way to convey the emotions encountered when climbing. The Squamish guides have had profanity for years.

In the case he was referring to it was because he was quoting the account of the first ascent verbatim, but I believe he's got it in in several spots and one of the other spots is a route name.

I think he was refering to what ones says 1/2 way down the bedwyn (sp?) couloir on Goode.

 

It is the Bedayn Couloir. And yes, one will say "fuck". And not just once, but several fucking times. Warning: Do not go down the Bedayn Couloir!

Dru, nobody refers to his books by volume #. It's red, green or tan (formerly brown). The green book is the latest new edition that came out this summer and Goode is in the green book. I don't have a clue what Vol. III is!
