      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!

Acutally not factor 2. It's never taken any real short hard whips.

 

somebody correct me if i'm wrong, but i dont think you generally walk away from factor 2 falls.

You might walk away, but you will often be sore and it will often involve cleaning out your pants.

If you are 100 feet up at a belay. Leader goes out 10 feet from belay with no gear in between him and the anchor, falls, then you got a fall factor 2. If the ground is steep enough and the belayer does not let go of the rope, you will walk away.
