You know someone is a LARPer when they shit on east coast mountains because west coast ones are taller but don’t realize that all that matters in the prominence of a mountain. Hiking a 14,000 footer but starting at 11,000 feet is no different than hiking a 4,000 footer and starting at 1,000 feet.
>>2253941Air is thinner higher though.
>>2253941Baby lunged fag never been high up enough to feel the pain of thin air being sucked into your lungs. Every breath feels like half a breath, and for baby east coast lungs like yours, it's a quarter breath. Goes well with your quarter brain.
>>2253957>this nigga can’t breath 14,000 feet up
>>2253941Except for temperature, wind speed, oxygen concentration, weather, snow, ice, avalanches, seracs and crevasses.
>>2253972Mount Washington has the highest wind speed of any place on Earth save Antarctica faggot.https://www.weatherbug.com/news/Mount-Washington-Home-of-the-World’s-Worst-Weathe
>>2253941>>2253977>using stock google images picturesokay you keep telling yourself that LARPer
>>2253979>changing the subject when proven wrong Like clockwork
>>2253941The last hike I did that was only 3000ft elevation gain was a three and a half mile hike. That’s ridiculously steep.Most of my day hikes gain 6000-7000 feet in elevation though, but they cap out around 11k feet
>>2253979Exactly. I always get a kick out of people who wine about LARP this and LARP that, but they conveniently never post their own images and they always start a thread with a googled image. >>2253941>>2253981Here you go, OP. You can borrow one of my pictures to start your next shitpost thread, you don't go outside.
>>2253977Are you really going to use a single example to attempt to prove your earlier, broad statement:>Hiking a 14,000 footer but starting at 11,000 feet is no different than hiking a 4,000 footer and starting at 1,000 feet.Because that's just fucking retarded.
>>2253941very nice use of maths, OP, I can see you passed the second grade
> east coast> /out/ Yeah right.
>>2253944Its also cooler and not sweltering heat half the year like at 5k feet
It's not the same at all, but there's no reason to hate on east coast mountains. There are plenty of beautiful and secluded Appalachian peaks to disappear into.
I have reservations to hike Baxter for my winter Northeast 115 this winter, ama
>>2253941Mt. Shasta starts around 2k feet and is 14k.
>>2254097>reservationsWhy?Just go do it
>>2253941Everyone from the states is a larper, I hate you all equally. Kind regards,Australia
>>2254017>He put an s after math to sound smart
>>2254107Because I’m also hiking North Brother and Hamlin during the same trip so reserving a leanto, cabin, or spot in a bunkhouse is the best way to do it. And dayhiking any of the mountains in Baxter Park is a lot of miles from the winter parking lot.
>>2254097are you the anon who's going with your female friend and trying to bag hamlin and north brother around christmas?
>>2253944>>2254104This.However, east coast mountains got a better spook factor vs sierras. I hear more creepy stories about motains out east then out west.
>>2253941they're literally different in a meaningful way, but i agree that westcoastfags overrate the difference.
>>2254097>amaBack to plebbit with you, upsidedownposter
>>2254108How are you typing upside down?
>>2253979>>2253998I dont know what OP is talking about but here's a picture I took in the Blue Ridge mountains, it was a fun hike and the view was great
>>2253977A mountain that anyone can drive to the top of is not really a mountain.
>>2253941Why shit on anything? It’s great how diverse different locations are. Why not see them all?
>>2253941The western US has all of the most prominent peaks in the US as well, along with trails with the most elevation change. Individual states and subregions in the west have more mountain peaks (that are on average both higher and more prominent) than the entirety of the Appalachians.
And west coast mountains are gay because not enough trees.
>>2253998>>2254171OP you just got TOLDT you was a lil larper bitch! Where's your response to that lmao.
>>2254616Go fuck your self westfag
>>2254019Gay and faggot
You know someone's a provincial east coast pleb when they perceive valid criticisms as being "shit on" and defend their mountains with false statements.
>>2253957>feel the pain of thin air being sucked into your lungsTallest mountain I've summitted was just over 5km. Breathing wasn't hard, though I was living at 2.5km at the time so I had acclimated to high elevations.
why do you guys care so much about what side mountain are located? Cant we all be united in our love for the outdoors
>>2254711Tribalism and regionalism is the death of our humanityThe east coast and west coast all suck in their own waysAll godly men know that the only perfect mountains are in west texas and new mexico
>>2254717perfection in form > one dimensional dick measuring over muh height or prominence
>>2254714I used to live in NM and went hiking all the time, it's a beautiful state
>>2254647You just confirmed you're a larper.
>>2254729Why don’t you put a sock in it bozo
>>2254107When i moved to maine i was excited to do a spur of the moment trip to baxter, but yea the baxter state park authority has a lot of cringe rules
>>2254985If you're a resident it's MUCH easier to get reservations/permits for baxter
>>2253941You wouldn't know, because you've never hiked any trails or trekked up any mountains in your entire life.
>>2254989Must be nice to live in a state where residents are prioritized over out-of-state tourist trash
>>2255008Are most states not like this? These are the costs of my licenses as a local. For non-residents, the price doubles, and non-residents can't trap.
>>2255012For hunting licenses, the most states states give preference (applications open earlier) to locals and charge extra for out-of-staters.For state parks, while some places charge extra for out-of-staters, i don't know many places that have a reservation window preference as generous as Baxter. For hiking permits, they allow locals to book any time during the year, but only open it up to out-of-staters the last 2 weeks. Camping permits are a bit more equitable between residents and out-of-staters
>>2255012>Are most states not like this?Maybe for hunting and fishing licenses. For access to state parks, some states charge out-of-state residents more to enter (like MA and NJ). For permits, some states give priority to in-state residents (like Maine). My state charges in-state residents the same as someone from Massachusetts or Quebec. And the U.S. national park system charges an American taxpayer the same amount as someone from China or Mexico.
>east mountain>west mountainPls, help confused yuropoor. It's like some fantasy land created by teenager.
>>2255039I know this is hard to understand since yuros don't have /out/, but in Canada and the US, the eastern and western half of the countries are different. They have different topography, different climates, different geography, everything.
>>2255039Best coast = rocky mountainsLeast coast = appalachianlet hills
>>2255073The Appalachians used to be taller than the Himalayas
>>2255084Your mother used to be an attractive woman.
>>2255221You fucking killed that guy
I like the east coast because theres less west coasters here
>>2254805Kek. I thought so.
>>2255084Central Rockies used to higher than the Tibetan plateau to.
>>2255392How come so many easterners go out west to recreate while comparatively few westerners go east to recreate? When was the last time you saw someone from California or Colorado in the Whites or Smokies? It's a rare sighting. Meanwhile you always see New Yorkers and Ohioans in California and Colorado and the PNW.
>>2255480w-we don't talk about that
>>2255480Speaking as a Mainer, we don’t travel all that much and prefer the Californians stay where the fuck they are. They should stay the fuck out of NH as well.
>>2256589Maine's the only state in the 48 contiguous I haven't been to yet. I'm coming for you.t. Californian
>>2253970sounds like you have never actually been even to 10k ft elevation.
>>2253941No one cares about distance you hiked. Manlet mountains cant compare to real mountains. You have clearly never seen the West's mountains in person. You will never get it.
>>2255480I talk shit about where I live to everyone who will listen even though it's a glorious paradise
>>2256640Just stay away in the winter and I’ll be fine.>>2256705Been to the rockies in CO and BC, definitely intimidating but going up Washington mid February is still exciting.
>>2254724looks like a tit
>>2254144I'm disappointed he didn't answer this. I wonder if he fell off.
LIFE IS OLDE THEREOLDER THAN THE TREES
You know someone is a LARPer when they think that /out/ing is a competition.Just enjoy the mountains your area has to offer.
>>2254714Beautiful out area. If we're rating mountains tho they can suck a dick when it comes to shit we have in the northwest.
>>2258035You failed. NEXT!
>>2253941>all that matters in the prominence of a mountainIs that why everyone from the east coast goes to California, Oregon, and Washington to ski, and the resorts on the east coast are considered worse?
