Isn't there a way an anchor could be installed somewhere along the rim, where a
fixed rope could be secured so people could
clip onto it and at least give them a feeling that they won't fall into the crater ???
Any anchor would get buried after every snowfall. Best approach is to just not walk out onto a cornice. There is plenty of room up there to walk around and get views without walking all the way to the edge.
Agreed. But, HOW are you going to explain
that to some people ??? ??
Mother Nature is a cruel mistress. Nice photo !!!
The most shocking thing was that it was his 68th summit of St. Helens...of all people he should have known to stay back. Very sad to lose a member of the community who loved the mountains as much as he seemed to.
