      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!

So was one person on the team the dedicated videographer?

 

How many cameras and what kind of cameras?

 

What kind of video editing software?

His trip sponsors may even require some degree of promotion.

 

Exactly. Hence the "product placement" shots at the start... that said I have no objection acknowledging the great companies that support the Copp Dash Inspire Award.

 

I'm contemplating a similar style and wrestle with all the carbon concerns mentioned. As much as I might like to spend a month schwacking through the brush and sitting in a tent on a rainy glacier drinking scotch with a bunch of stinky dudes hoping a weather window will open, it just doesn't square with my other obligations. So smash and grab sounds a hell of a lot better than sitting on the couch. And yes, maybe I should take extra steps before and after a trip to reduce my footprint in other ways.

 

Same here. I like my climbing partners but I like spending time with my kids and staying employed more... hence this approach. As the classic saying goes "this is what you want, this is what you get"... it comes down to doing the best you can with the cards you were dealt. I do what I can at home to offset my carbon on trips. Since last fall the 20 solar panels on my home have produced 1515 kilowatt hours of energy

It's nothing but Fast Food Alpinism. Anyone who doesn't refill their ratty styrofoam coffee cup at Tim Hortons every morning, live in the back of a rusty Tacoma and squat for 30 days every spring at Kahiltna International is obviously not dedicated.

CO2 equivalent of 1,515 kWh = roughly 1301 lbs.

CO2 production of commercial flight = roughly 1 lb/mile/passenger

Seattle - Petersburg = 1796 lbs

 

So, you should more than offset your flight in a year or so. Not bad. That doesn't count the helicopter ride though.

 

Am I really a hater? I would describe myself as mildly critical and slightly holier-than-thou.

Please move any further carbon footprint conversation into the Climbers Board and out of the Trip Report. Thanks.
