      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!

I was one of the folks lined up at the gates on 12/18, and heard about this incident when I cycled through for another lap.

 

Thankfully the victim survived, and there's a good thread on this at TAY that has quite a bit of detail from folks who were on the scene. I thought I'd cross-post it here for those that don't peruse that forum:

Looks like the story also made national news:

Thanks for the link, Great to hear that she survived and was found. Several lessons to learnm for any of us in the BC. Good discussion on TAY. Also strictly anacdotal evidence but after a little search of pepes and videos it is interesting to note that the ones with helmet cams wer the ones getting the apparent "random" readings. Definatley needs more study.

 

One the flip side this is a great video to share as it is as real as it gets for a scenario in class.
