      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!

squamish fatality

update to the article make is sound more like a hiker.. not that it really matters. tragic no matter what.

 

i was at the top of the split pillar when it happened and was about the worst thing i could imagine seeing.

 

unrelated: about an hour beforehand, a large chunk of rock fell off the sword pitch. narrowly missing a few parties on the route and several parties at the base of exasperator (etc)... a bad day coulda been a whole lot worse.

J$s%s you had to watch that? I'm so sorry. The sound a falling body makes is definitive and hard to ever forget.

Squamish RCMP are looking for witnesses. It sounds like you are one of the few people who may actually have seen the event.

 

Please give them a call if you haven't already: contact numbers here

we spoke to the first rescuers on the scene. we finished rapping as they got to the base and we directed them to where she fell.

 

we didn't see specifically where she came from.
