Records on Summits

Postby Murph1 » Sun Jan 11, 2009 10:40 pm

Personally, I think the original record containing the first ascent should be taken to the closest University of California facility, copied, and stored. All other recorded ascents should remain on the mountains. Publishing records for general public use doesn't appeal to me. Knowing some of the quotes contained on soon summits, I doubt the authors would want them to become general public knowledge. Other climbers also find out information about other routes while reading summit records.
I suspect that having all those summit records located at Bancroft Library would make it much easier for Guide Book writers to verify completed routes on specific peaks, but otherwise would be of little use to the public.
Enjoy to summits and leave the records there for all who follow to enjoy! :wink:

I am a big register fan from the perspective of seeing who has been here before and how often a peak is climbed. It creates a bit of a camraderie with people you've never met. A discovery of an old register is always a great feeling.

With that said, I appreciate the people who keep on replacing registers on popular peaks but it is a losing battle. I seem to comparmentalize infrequently climbed peaks and have an expectation to find a register on those compared to the others.

to quote DMT

See I have come to believe summit registers should be left on the summit - to eventually rot even. They belong to the summits and the folks who climb there and sign them and no one and no where else really.

the hell with a library. It's like reading an academic dissertation to understand rock and roll.
