      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!

SAR at Alpental?

Recommended Posts

Heading out of the Alpental lot this afternoon Sunday Sept. 8 I was looking at my phone but looked up to catch a glimpse of what looked like SAR vehicles on the side of the road, like maybe a response was going on. It looked like they might have been looking up at Guye.

 

Anyone know what this is about?

We ran into SAR on top of Guye this afternoon. They were rapping down to evacuate a guy who had fallen on the improbable traverse and broken both ankles.

Yesterday we were climbing the Improbable Traverse and my partner took a bad leader fall. I would like to send out a huge thank you to all the SARS groups that showed up and put in the amazing time, effort, sacrifice, and high risk to aid in getting my friends out and down safely. You people were incredible.

Many many thanks,

John Rollins

Hopefully some day I can repay your efforts.

I think he may have gotten into some wet rock in a bad spot and just an accident.
