      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!

Tell me Everything you see Wrong in this movie!

Kind of like those Group Health commercials where the doctor/consultant is trying to explain how it really works and the writers are just coming up with more and more fantastic shit.

dexamethasone is also NOT used to treat HAPE...it is used for HACE. and they'd have been dead mere minutes after their coughs became productive.

 

Just to clear the record, dexamethasone IS used to tread HAPE and HACE.

From the Vertical Limit goofs page on IMDB:

 

Factual errors: Everything shown about belaying and climbing techniques, high altitude mountaineering, helicopter usage, high altitude medicine (exception: dex), high altitude mountaineering clothes and the shape of K2 is wrong.

 

There are many other good ones on that page, but that one pretty much summarizes this movie in one sentence.

Has anyone seen the new North Face movie? I saw an advance screening at REI. It looked very authentic to me. I didn't notice anything that was implausible, except for perhaps a part where two guys are hanging from one piton, and the pin is starting to pull. The guy at the belay is pounding it back in with a hammer and yelling, "the piton is pulling out!". Then one of the guys below sees they are f---ed, pulls out a knife and cuts the rope.

 

Apparently, this movie was filmed in 2008 in German. It is only now available with English subtitles.
