      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!

3 Lost on Mount Hood

Yeah, the news networks are switching from live to loops and back to something Fox is calling "new video". After watching this for the last hour it's pretty clear the talking heads and the people doing the captions don't know what's being broadcast.

Jim Whitaker's cnn interview is a bit annoying. Climbers today relie on rescue but in his day they relied on teamwork. Then he is asked if he has ever been rescued and he says "yes" on Denali.

 

So anyone who is rescued today is substandard but not when he needed it.

 

I wish someone would point out this cave.

I don't have the link but it is KOIN-KPTV so google it. Please be nice. There is plenty of room and banwidth here to have a few questions outside the lines.

 

Looks like it might take some time however.

I appreciate the transcription because I don't have access to these television channels.

That's what I thought.

 

Lambone - CNN is showing shots from KOIN-KPTV, but I don't know link.

 

Zeta male - you're a hypocritical prick.

I am from SJC on Blog.

I agree that it is good to keep track of technical notes this way.

Thanks for updating with video info as I do not have cable.

Best.

What is the upside down V shape made of? Snow? Ropes? The only shape I've heard mentioned was the 'Y' made by gear, which someone said means 'Yes, I'm here.' Is a snow cave suppose to grow in height in relation to the surrounding snow as snow falls on top of it? I don't know why it would do that. When you build a cave, you dig into snow already there, unless it's some sort of igloo design.

 

I thought DISH network only receives, doesn't transmit. And any

confirmation as to where the three were would have saved a week's worth of searching.

The guy who went down the ridge is now digging.

the " /\ " shape is visible in the snow just below the sar guy on cnn.

I concur, was watching the guy digging from the apex of the /\ for five minutes and amazed that none of the talking heads mentioned it. You could even see the spindrift coming from his shovel.

I wonder if you called into CNN if there's any chance they could clue the talking heads into that video.

You just completely misquoted him. Before you post, think before you hit the enter key.

Anyone else notice the older footage showing a small group of rescuers to the right of the ridge below the Pearly Gates? Are they testing the snow over there before heading up?

CNN just reported a communication on the radio "prepare to evacuate the summit at 1600 hours." No indication of what it means.

Pretty up to date pics on this CNN site,

http://www.cnn.com/

 

where is the nodder?

 

The current view appears to me to show, as viewed from the SE, about a dozen people on the summit preparing to scan/descend the NF.

They just said they will leave the summit at 4 pm that's two hours from now. I can't understand why someone doesn't say anything about the guy probing the snow on the Y you can clearly see?? It looks like there is one guy probing on the ridge below the summit.
