      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!

Rainier, April 22 through 27

Recommended Posts

My brother and I intend to climb Raininer April 22 through 27 from Muir. Anyone looking to: a) porter a load April 22 to Camp Muir for money, or b) join the fun?

Drop a line real soon.

Bill

I'm sorry.I didn't mean to sound rude but its pretty sad to want someone to haul a load up to muir for a climb. If you cant haul five days worth of food five miles then you shouldn't be climbing Mount Rainier. :P

Thanks for the words of encouragement! Being new to the BBB, I wanted to see who of you were ethical, knowledgeable, and sincere. Thanks, and good climbing!

I guess that would make me unethical, unknowledgeable, and insincere? yep, that about sums it up.

Good climbin' yerself.

So how much money are we talking about?

So is driving 26 m.p.h. within the MRNP boundary, but I bet you've done it with impunity. I don't know what law you're referring to, but 36 C.F.R. 54 (?) does say that is illegal to "engage in" a commercial activity within the park boundary. Guiding clearly requires a concession permit. I'd argue that accepting a gratuity for hauling a pack to Muir doesn't violate the statute. Besides, this is America. Even porters in communist China get paid to haul loads.

What's pathetic is climbers with elitist attitudes like this.

Couldn't agree more with you Phil

Shame on you Bill-baiting never leads to anything good

I have no ethics and would love to help carry your gear up to camp Muir for $. Last year my buddy and I made it to the summit of Rainier, with the help of a porter to carry some of our gear to Muir. Despite what these other people are replying with, it's a great way to go! Let me know

Wow, people wanting to take your packs up for free! Last year on our climb we thought the gravy train rolled into paradise when 120 army guys filed out of 2 buses for a hike to Muir. My buddy offered $50 to anyone to take his pack up--no takers once they saw how much it weighed! They were shivering in their cold wet jeans at the hut and half of them were snow blind by then. And it's hard to bring up ethics when there is a rut all the way up anyway.

I have perfect ethics and would love someone to carry me and my sack to the top of Rainier. I can't pay but a reach around isn't out of the question.

Mr. Wdkingmnan:

As a result of the overwhelming response to my new corporation, Unethical Porters.com I went IPO yesterday netting the $50 I was hoping to get from you to carry a load for you or your brother. This will approximatly cover my entry pass and climbers pass for the next year at Mt. Rainier.

I am now secretly planning the bankrupcy of the corporation and will not be available to "join the fun" or porter gear for you and your brother on April 22 throught the 27th.

Word to your mother-

Insincerly,

Bronco

What's everyone talking about? Why would anyone need help carrying their load up to Muir?...there are bathrooms right at the parking lot!

I try to never climb with a "loaded gun" too...Is that hair gel???

Maybe we can start listing auctions at Ebay or AdultFriend Finder for porter services...might sound too much like a singles ad though.......

"Married, WM, 28, HWP, NS, social drinker; seeks companionship and fun in the outdoors, willing to carry the "load" for you........."
