      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!

Risk management and safety question?

Recommended Posts

Last summer I was rapping from the bolts to right of the top of Superslab. About half way down, there was a large (42 inch TV..not plasma) sized block that was very loose. I almost trundled it, and then realized that there might be people below. I was usnure who to report it to. Is there a group of locals that take stewardship of issues like this? The real question is, who should make a decision about rock at a climbing area like Smith Rocks, and is there a venue for reporting an unsafe situation that is natural vs an unsafe situation caused by climbers. I think that all climbers accept a certain amount of risk by pursuing this sport and each climber makes their decisions on the mitigation of that risk.

Its not just climbers down there, I'dve informed a ranger or someone affiliated with the park. Chances are someone would be happy to trundle it.
