      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!

Nice find John. After watching that I am convinced that I am a pussy. What climb is that?

not only does he solo the route but performs an impromptu rescue/assist...

 

from BD's site:

I topped out at about noon, and made quick work of the descent—on

schedule for an afternoon return to El Chalten and a nice, relaxing

day in total... However, at the notch at the top of the couloir I

found an inexperienced climber, by himself, who was very confused as

to the whereabouts of his partner and did not have means to descend—

considering that he had with him only two carabiners, a belay device,

a single 50m rope but no hardware whatsoever. After a lot of

shenanigans looking for his missing partner, we rappelled the couloir

together and began the hike out. His missing partner was soon found,

and no harm done except that I ate dinner much later than I had planned!
