      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!

Arrest Practice - Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend a place to practice self arresting? I need about a 35 degree angle hill with good run out.

 

I'm in Seattle area.

I would say, if you are by yourself go up to Rainier/Paradise past Pan Point. If you get injured you'll be around other people for help.

 

 

Anyone been up to the Source Lake, Tooth, Chair Peak area lately?

 

If there is enough snow, you might be able to find a slope with an okay run out up the valley from the Alpental parking lot. Pretty iffy after all the rain lately.( remember that area requires a parking pass)

If you don't care about esthetics, and want something that is very close to a road, the Baker ski area is pretty ideal during the summertime. Specifically the area around Heather Meadows/Table Mtn., just outside the ski area boundary. A bit of a haul from Seattle, but probably no farther than Paradise, and has better slopes to practice on.

Actually, us Bushwhackers did a couple classes up at Paradise.... we found a GREAT PLACE right up at Alta Vista. Seriously, less than a half mile from the parking lot at Paradise and we had some great conditions. This was such a great place. There was a lot of area there - just watch out, RMI, AAI & IMG use that area for all sorts of climb school stuff.... so you'll have to choose a spot - get there early and it will go great.
