      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!

AAJ Accidents on Rainier

Recommended Posts

I am not really seeing anything that enlightening. The author seems to be stating the mostly the obvious and emphasizing the basics. He did not even get into a discussion on probably the biggest issue facing climbers on Rainier - rope up and place gear or not. On Liberty he barely mentions that many climbers end up with a high bivy and unprepared for it.

Well i think there is information there that could lead you to draw your own conclusions. It definitely could have been done better (like plot all the accidents on a web map that allows you to look at topography) and other better data visualizations.


But nothing wrong with showing the basics, there are new climbers born every day, everyone's gotta learn.
