      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!

Mountaineering Instructional Video question

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea of a US film sort of like this one: (or even where I can order that one from)

I want to take some friends up mountaineering and want to give them something they can watch before they get here to get a jump start on the learning curve. The basics of Mountaineering is all is has to teach. Crampon use/self arrest/roping techniques/crevasse rescue/ect would be ideal. I've searched everywhere for such a thing and can't seem to find it! Thanks ahead of time!

Tons of free information/videos on YouTube. Mike Barter is a prolific YouTube poster and has put a lot of work into some informative and very thoughtful posts. The Mountaineering Council Of Scotland also has some great videos for sale (http://www.mcofs.org.uk/shop-dvds.asp). Seems to me you can also find some of excerpts on YouTube as well. Doesn't originate in US, but why would you care?

I didn't care that it wasn't from the U.S. I just didn't want to order something from New Zealand and have it take 2 months to get here is all =) Thank you for the info! I'm looking into the you tube posts right now. (didn't even think to look there)
