      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 am interested in watching "Alpine Ice: Jeff Lowe's Climbing Techniques" but it doesn't seem to have a DVD version. I can't find a VHS player. Does anyone know of any digitial version? Thanks.

I've looked everywhere and also sent an email to Jeff to ask if he had plans to release it to digital (no response)

Yes I checked Chessler and they don't have it :(

 

I sent my VHS player to a goodwill store last time I moved. I didn't expect I'd ever need it again. Oh well, time to borrow a VHS player, I guess.

I loved that video, used to watch it on boring cardio machines. Mine mysteriously disappeared 5+ years ago...

That video also featured many excellent examples of what not to do while ice climbing. Such as:

 

- using your ice tool as a belay anchor.

- stacking screws, not only useless but time and energy intensive.

- confusing belay commands, "Okay, Bird, we're safe."

- using Snargs "the dreaded pound-in" (Jeff, was that a euphemism?)

 

It had some memorable narration:

"Drink deep of the heady wines of climbing in the canyon" or something like that.
