      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!

holy! I double checked to make sure this wasn't in Spray before I clicked on it. What a dumbass. Hopefully his close call will shake up his climbing philosophies and make him a safer climber.

Cool to finally see a picture of that. I'd heard about it while at Muir that day.

 

I've heard of bears being spotted at elevations up to 14,000 or so on Denali as well...

I saw a marmot at 13,500' on the Kautz Glacier in '00. He didn't look like he was feeling well, just kept walking in circles near a big crevasse.
