      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!

I've been thinking about this long and hard and i've come to the conclusion after reading this that Bill O' Reilly should stand watch at a gate, allowing only those with Tautauns large enough house the climber in its belly in emergency situations and that the mountain should be carpet bombed with flares such that one is always in arms reach in case of emergency.

heck yeah, a tauntaun is worth the weight. if you get lost, you're going to need some ladders to put in the shape of a "Y," indicating "yes, I'm here." Who's going to carry those ladders? A tauntaun, that's who.

WELL IF canadianian can afford to man all mountains why can't US? I don't understand why they can't just hunker down and climb through to the summit. I mean, if we can put a man on the moon, why not build a special suit for climbing up the mountain in 150 MPH wind or some robot that can remote control a drone robot with special arms for grabbing stuff.

sometimes, though, your tauntaun might fall into a half-mile deep crack in the glacier. or zombie jesus might bite its head off.

 

a couple of the risks you have to accept if you're crazy enough to climb IN THE WINTER.

THIS THINK TANK IS GETTING SOMEWHERE. SOMEONE CALL THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE AND TELL THEM WE MIGHT HAVE A SOLUTION.

I know nothing about climbing, but it seems to me that you are suicidal and endangering the populace of Dafur with your negligence.

I am getting a Y tattooed on my forehead. That stands for Y, which means "Yes I have screwed a tauntaun".

:shocked:

I'll assume that they're just going to modify the 'L' that's already there.

LOL!

I use my tauntaun to approach some of the BURLIEST lines in all of the cascades. They are also handy for towing into RIP UP gap jumps. AND they are even hotter than g-spotter's mom, LOLz!!!!

Tauntauns smell horrible, but do the work of twenty sherpas and you don't feel bad when they get mauled by a Wampa. You just wish the smelly beasts were around to haul your frostbit ass out of a cave. Sadly, Tauntauns are disappearing as fast as our glaicers.
