      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!

Challenge of Technology

Recommended Posts

I posted this in the newbie section but included it here as well since it mentions Mt Hood. Hope this helps some folk recognize the limitations of technology, how it can help but also give us false security. Its does not reflect the view of the mountain rescue community just my own.

A friend pointed out that maybe I should make a true v false list of the statements but I assume folks can do that on their own

Cute. In case anyone reading this thread wants to learn about devices and mountain rescues, I wrote an article on this topic a few months ago that may be of interest:
