what's the point of climbing a mountain
>>
haha just came here to see if there's a thread like this. Right now there's nothing interesting going on regarding polar travel so I may chill here for a while. Last time we ended a thread like this on /sp/ they ended the search for Ali Sadpara and team. The only update I can give is that Pakistani government promised to take care of his family which is like the first concrete acknowledgment of his accomplishments by the government.

my urge to climb mountains is so damn high but i can't be bothered getting to know anyone who does it and it's too dangerous to do alone (also sort of cringe)

also, anyone here ski mountaineering? That seem's interesting. Here's a good documentary about how stupid it is:https://youtu.be/QHVSeqzI1vU

can't wait to actually try it myself!

I'm interested on the effects low oxygen from high altitudes have on your brain. I remember a guy from the one documentary about competitive memory that the higher he goes, the faster he can memorize a deck of cars. It's really fascinating, honestly.

I've always done it with family members but half of the regulars are getting old, out of shape, and/or wagiecagie prohibits it a lot. It takes a lot of organizing on my part to get the gang together once or twice a year.

I think you could mountain stuff on both. Mountaineering is definitely an extreme sport, but it's also an /out/ activity through and through.

It's literally no longer there, because that's a volcano that has since blown its top. You can still go hiking there, and there are neat lava caves and stuff, but yeah.

There are some mountains that you can do solo without too much danger, just stay the fuck away from glaciers.

I know that feel. Never had anyone to climb with and I'm kind of a scaredy cat anyway so I limit myself to easy scrambles at worst.

>>2769
I'll be in the Vegas area in a couple weeks, I was looking at bridge mountain, might be a bit tougher than usual for me though.
Kind of want to do a trip to the wind river, tetons and yellowstone this summer, was looking at cirque of the towers, Mitchell or East Temple peak might be possible for me, only peak I might do in the Tetons is Table Mountain. But I'm quite scared of backpacking in grizzly country alone so this trip is very much still up in the air, at least the backpacking portions anyway.
Definitely doing a road trip in southern new mexico and west texas this autumn, do some climbs in guadalupe, big bend and organ mountains.

I bought these fuckers with size according to the chart provided by official site and yet they still cause me fucking blisters and fuck up my toes.

there's a sense of accomplishment that comes with reaching the top, and a great view that makes you feel like a king.

It takes time to get a solid crew of mountainbros, but it's worth it. Just start with smaller hikes together and then build up to overnighters and go from there. Male bonding is part of the enjoyment.
>>
>>5282
So as far as major eight-thousander milestones go, the only ones remaining are the K2 east face, and a full climb of the west face?

why do fucking white people want to climb this?

There is nothing up there

they spend thousands sometimes millions to get to the top of these stupid mountains

they could be sending that money to africa, to help the starving children

instead of trying to stroke their own ego
>>

Mountain climbing is only a white people thing in America.
In the rest of the world, people of every race climb if they happen to live near mountains. Look at both South America and Asia.
>>
>>6095
Yes, but the main difference is the affordability of free time.

Those people in those countries are trying to escape the white capitalist system invading their countries, by moving higher in the mountains.

They do not do it for recreational reasons, because they have to work every day of their life just to survive, some might not survive because of white deforestation and burning of forests (Brazil).

The white person climbs it because of the labors of these marginalized and enslaved minorities, and then proceed into their countries to walk to the top to pretend they are God over these countries.

ipso facto, white people are the only race who climbs it for their own ego boost, the rest do it to escape them and survive

We can all agree, if Whistler and Blackcomb were sisters, Whistler would be the slutty, party bitch that's suddenly not that pretty when you take off the rose-tinted glasses. Blackcomb would be the pretty, quite but powerful type that you could fall in love with.

UK National Three Peaks, Coast to Coast, couple of 2000m+ mountains in Switzerland if the lockdown ease. Also going back to do the Tour Du Mont Blanc, got three days in last year but got scuppered by thunderstorms, plus most the refuges were closed due to covid.

So is poor Green Boots still in his cave or did someone actually have the dignity to push him down a ravine? I'm getting conflicting information.

Also, I know you can't waste time with hypoxia and stuff but somebody couldn't have spared 5 seconds to take a photo of his face to confirm who it actually was?
