      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!

Hubers on ElCap

Recommended Posts

Netflix has a film about Hubers on Elcap- a great story. Tad too long for my liking, but some great cinematography and good story nevertheless.

I would second that,it is a little long but definitely worth the watch.

If you get bored it is always fun to poke fun at the Huberbrau anyway.

I saw this as well. It was eye opening as to the work and preparation that goes into making a new speed record. I had assumed that climbers just walked up to the base and fired the Nose. Serious preparation, committment, and risk, goes into making a new speed record.

Way better then this movie:

Steve's narration nearly made me vomit. It's funny how he is a pretty good guy when you meet him in person, but he portraits himself in the media so poorly.
