      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!

Crevasse Rescue Practice

Recommended Posts

I'd like to spend some time doing crevasse rescue practice in prep for possibly a Baker climb - let me know if anyone is interested. It would be great to get a couple people together. I have all the equipment needed for this.

When do you want to go? I'm on vacation so I am pretty free. Also, do you know where a good place for this would be? I'm in seattle. I'd prefer somewhere where we can get down to practicing fairly quickly and not have to hike half the day to get there, as I want to spend most of the time practicing rescue.

I would be interested in joining in on this as well.

 

Unfortunately my only experience in crevasse rescue is book learning, but I'm useful as a dead-weight to pull out of a crack. Also live in Seattle (Fremont area).

 

I'm working a 9-5 so I'm limited to weekends unless I have a few week's notice.

Yeah my crevasse stuff is mostly book learning too - but weekends would be fine with me, but where could we go that wouldn't require like an entire day's hike just to get to?

 

Hood would be good if we could take the ski lift to the top, but as I'm in seattle I'd definitely prefer somewhere closer than Hood if possible.
