      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!

need fuckton of permits all dates 2 sell all dates

Recommended Posts

need a shitload of permits for all dates so that i may sell them for all dates going forward.

 

MSHI are frauds who collect $5 from each permit (they call it a donation on their website--but I've never known of a mandatory donation). They get $40,000-50,000 rough estimate in 'donations' *COUGH*fees*COUGH* to protect and maintain the climbers trail.

1) protection - it is in a national volcanic monument already

2) maintain - it is covered by snow for over 50% of the year. Do they really spend $40,000-50,000 a year on the 3 miles of rock and sand? that would easily make it the most expensive trail to maintain in the entire NW, yes?

 

why does CC do the favor of linking/exchange for MSHI? or is it more out of sympathy for everyone fucked by MSHI assbackwards permit process?

Last time I was in WA I climbed it. I had no clue about the permits. I saw the ranger and understood his question but answered him in German and showed him my wallet without any ID. He left me alone and went off to bother some other climber.

 

So if you know a foreign language try to fake it.

Right on Water. And do not be misled when they say some of the funds are used to facilitate search and rescue. Absolutely none of the permit funds go to search or rescue! Poaching the summit via alternate routes is fun and satisfying!
