Ice Climbing on Mount Cascade – A Lesson in Mindfulness and Mindlessness

Published

on

There is a tremendous leeway of safety when playing in the mountains. Nature offers up a lot of support for humans to go and explore and enjoy the backcountry. In many senses this is great and with everything in life there is a down side. With each passing year of safely playing in the backcountry, there germinates in Earths’ children a false sense of security. We humans are testing the limits of safe experience every year; going a little bit further and higher and faster than the year before. Eventually, not if-but when, the Mountains will test you. I’ve been to the Mountains full of youth and inexperience. I’ve been nurtured by their beauty and calm and I have survived some of their fury. I’ve come to realize that there is more to learn about yourself in Nature, than there is to learn about the Mountains. This is the story of my lesson on Mount Cascade.

“Avalanche”, came the words from my mouth. I had yelled them-I think I had, but it was tough to be sure that the words cam from my mouth. I don’t know how I knew. I had never experienced an avalanche before, never taken a course in avalanches, I hadn’t even seen the movie-there must be several. I wasn’t prepared and I didn’t know the proper procedures. None of that mattered as I gazed at the gathering cloud of snow in the distance above Ian. There was a certain beauty about that momentary view. Ian appeared to be centre stage in a billowing framework. The cloud was somehow perfect, as in a cartoon strip, with its rounded, comfy, edges. It should have been pure white, but it was gray…very gray-it was noticeably dirty!

“Why is it dirty?” I thought. On reflection, it makes no sense that a tiny, seemingly insignificant detail should have preoccupied my mind in this time of great urgency. Perhaps it is a sensory distortion-a part of the “slow motion” effect popularized in tales of survival. There seemed to be all sorts of time to contemplate the finer details of the avalanche rushing dangerously towards me. The details and distractions didn’t betray the almost immediate recognition of the catastrophic danger.

“Who care’s if it is dirty or not! Get on with it.” Within milliseconds I had instinctively recognized the danger for what it was and had begun some kind of crude defensive…or should I say my mouth had begun some kind of crude defensive. The same kind of defensive that takes over when a barking dog startles you out from a daydream. It began as a withdrawal fear response and quickly changed into a warning scream: “Aaaaaahhhhh…valanche!”

I had first met Ian on an earlier trip to the Rockies-he was “a friend of a friend”. Six of us had met to climb “Professor’s”, a spectacular icefall within hiking distance of the Banff Springs Hotel. On that weekend I was second (followed another’s lead up the climbing pitch) to Chuck and I believe Ian had entrusted Nina to be his second. A trust that should by all rights not be taken lightly for if you fall you rely on your partner’s skill to arrest your fall and support your ongoing existence. It is not uncommon in climbing, however, to hand over the other end of your rope (your lifeline) to a complete stranger. A person who’s sole qualification is that they are “a friend of a friend”. On that weekend Chuck took a reasonably significant lead fall of approximately 10 meters.

A lead fall is particularly more dangerous than a second fall. When you are climbing second there is never much more than a half-meter of rope slack depending on how conscientious your partner is. So, if you do slip and fall you will fall that amount of rope slack plus whatever inherent elasticity the rope affords in added slack. In most circumstances your lead will have reached a spot above you where (s)he feels comfortable setting up a base: an area that allows a stable anchor to be constructed. So there is little likelihood of you pulling free from your protection (“pro”). A lead fall is an entirely different situation. A leader falls from the highest point reached, down to the last piece of “pro” that was placed–if only that were the end of it. (S)he then falls until all the accumulated rope has come to tension on the down side of the last piece of pro. The higher you climb beyond protection, the farther you fall below protection. A necessary addition to this is that the longer the fall the greater the amount of stretch on the rope and therefore the greater the fall due to the elastic deformation of the rope. I have never taken a lead fall, but I am certain that it involves a considerable terror.

Certainly a lot of falls occur as a result of an error in judgment: a placement that was not as stable as had been anticipated, or a hastily applied ice axe, for example. But the worst failure of judgment, a precursor to the most terrifying fall, is an error of setting one’s limit: an over-extension of one’s own ability. Falling unexpectedly is like being called upon to stand up in front of a crowd and say a few words about a subject you are knowledgeable in. It’s scary, but soon you are in the throes of the situation and there is no time left to continue agonizing. I was the MC at a local showing of the “Best of Banff Film Festival” a couple of years back. For weeks in advance I would have momentary flashes-a few seconds at most-of anxiety as I imagined myself in front of the crowd on center stage. On the Friday of the show I was having difficulty with more frequent and increasingly longer flashes of anxiety. In the minutes leading up to my presentation I was in a considerable state of disarray: sweaty palms, armpits, and back; an ongoing urge to defecate; dry mouth; pacing; and a strong need to be by myself. The feelings are welling up in me again just thinking about it. The evening went well and I doubt whether anyone would have guessed at the nervous pre-amble, but I believe, that is the kind of slow, agonizing, self-torture that goes on before the anticipated fall-the “fear-fall. You know that your time is imminent; you know that you are drawing ever closer to the climax and for the most part you must follow through and yet you have doubts as to your capacity to succeed. The fear-fall however, goes beyond stepping up onto a stage…, it involves a whole another level and degree of anxiety.

Prior to the fear fall there must be an impasse, a breakdown of options. Of the options you have available to you none appear to be working and as you tire fewer and fewer options present themselves. In tiring you begin to realise that you may be in trouble. When you can least afford the leisure, you begin to consider the safety of your protection. “How good was that last placement? Will it withstand the forces of a fall of this magnitude? Is the rope positioned to maximal benefit? Why didn’t I place another piece of pro at that last buttress when I had a chance?” And then it comes to you-“I need to get another piece of pro in quick!” You have reduced yourself to one option, and most times it’s not the best option.

Putting a piece of protection into ice is not easy. Most commonly you are looking at putting in an ice screw, which is very similar to a normal screw but larger: about the size of a plastic tent peg. There are no pre-bored holes in ice, so one must first chip a small area of ice away for purchase: a depression that allows the screw to bite. If you are lucky the screw does bite and then you are able to begin boring into the ice. No screw drivers, no vises, no warm basement workshops, and no hands because you are still clinging by ice axes to the approximately perpendicular face of waterfall ice. Houdini would have appreciated the act. Placing a screw is difficult. Placing a screw in the throes of worrying about a fear-fall, is next to impossible.

I remember Chuck verbalizing his concerns to the ice. He had begun to agonize. At the time I thought, “he probably talks to his computer also, he’s just like that. Its normal as long as he doesn’t start responding to himself.” He must have been 15-20 meters above me, but clearly audible. I distinctly remember him discussing his impasse; he seemed calm, in control. Unbeknownst to me, he had begun to toil mentally and physically. The best solution would have been to buckle down and go forward for the safety of the top, but he was despairing. He began to doubt his ability to reach the top and decided instead to place a piece of pro. The act of placing a piece of pro at this point confirms that you are in trouble. Chuck must have known for some time before he fell, that he was falling.

One of the biggest fears I have is being trapped under water. In the early years of learning to windsurf I remember on several occasions being flung around by a big gust of wind and landing underneath the sail, still harnessed to it and submerged under both the sail and the water. For the most part such unnatural acts require much less than ten seconds to correct and yet your mind is deceived. In the bathtub I am to hold my breath for up to a minute with great ease, but out here on the lake a few seconds is all it takes before I am bowing to my lungs’ unrelenting demand to blow off accumulated carbon dioxide. As panic strikes you begin to struggle and ten seconds feels like an eternity.

The same eternity strikes at the ice climber’s impasse only there is no heroic struggle to get your head above water. The last seconds are spent inertly agonizing over protection-toiling mentally without a doubt-but there is no Herculean effort for life. At some point Chuck must have come to the worst of all doubts-“who the hell is that guy at the other end of my rope”. It was me-“a friend of a friend.”
“I’m falling”, came the cry. In the end you actually jump, you don’t allow yourself to fall; it’s safer to jump. I had never caught a human’s fall before, only some manner of punching bag that had been rigged indoors at the University of Calgary climbing wall. The mute punching bag had caught me even more unawares than the screaming Chuck had. And, I had for the most part successfully caught the punching bag. In retrospect things were looking good for Chuck.

I believe the punching bag exercise is used to build confidence in the novice’s ability to stop a fall of considerable force. The mechanism of catching a fall is based on a friction device that at first glance appears very flimsy. It can be as crude as wrapping the rope around your back and in fact this is often the case in ice climbing because the rope freezes and jams in the normal friction device. The worst sin possible, when using a friction device (a “plate”) is to let your hand be drawn into the mechanism. If your hand is drawn in, your skin becomes the new friction device (read horrendous “rope burn”). In our class, I was unfortunate enough to be the first saviour of the hapless punching bag and the instructor must have placed enough confidence in my abilities to let the bag go without any warning.

I was initially taken off guard and allowed my hand to be drawn terrifyingly close to the friction device. Fortunately the bag came pendulously to a halt in front of the class in a scene somewhat reminiscent of an old tyme public display of Canadian capital punishment. At the time I didn’t think to enter into a discussion of my error nor did I share my brush with failure with the other classmates. My fellow amateurs were busying themselves within the camaraderie of the situation, who was I to allow reality to interrupt the spreading fuzzy feeling. Each in turn readied for a chance at the punching bag. If it were up to the bag as to who should have been let out into the real world of climbing, I doubt whether I would have been the “friend of a friend” at the end of Chuck’s rope.

I don’t know what prompted me to look up at Cascade. It must have been the sound–a low rumbling–that first alerted me to the danger. I had positioned myself at the bottom of a small pitch, which I was about to climb without ropes (free climb). Ian had already summitted this pitch and was continuing upward on a short flat stretch toward the next pitch. I could still see him if I backed away from the ice face. It was a clear and relatively warm day and I was looking forward to a glorious climb.

All climbers have heard tragic tales from Cascade Falls and I suppose we all treat the stories similarly: “… it couldn’t happen to me, I’m careful; they must have made some obvious error”. The winter prior a fellow from France had met with untimely death as a result of a rockfall! Freak accident, I rationalized. The highway drive to the mountains poses considerably greater risk to life and limb.

It was not long before the rumbling overtook us. Within seconds of alerting Ian I hacked at the iceface with both axes. When you place an ice axe there is a feel and an accompanying sound of a good placement, similar in many respects to an effective wood chop with a woodsman’s axe. My left axe entered the ice with a reassuring “thunk” and felt firm; my right, weak and ineffective. There was no second chance to better my right axe placement. The heavy snow began to forcibly thud on my back so much so that it was an effort to stay standing. I pulled as close to the ice face and my axes as was possible. The deluge of snow worsened and its pressure on my back and head intensified.

I have never experienced my life flashing before my eyes and had prior to this day believed it was a Hollywood stunt only. My wife had, the evening before subjected me to an avalanche pop quiz. At the time I had resented her concern. Against my better intention I became distant from the immediate predicament and began to relive our conversation and visions of her and our daughter. We were sitting comfortably on our bed. I could see the moment as from the outside and above. I couldn’t make out any of the discussion but the words widow and fatherless echoed. I wanted to go back to the present-I needed me. The flash was not comforting. It seemed to herald the end. But this couldn’t be the end. There had been no prolonged struggle, the day had not been climactic; the weather was clear and beautiful. WHERE, was my struggle!?

The snow continued its pounding and my right axe finally failed, my arm was sucked away in the avalanche’s torrent and with it went the axe. They two dangled and danced in the nearby current of falling snow. I had only one arm of support left to me and as much as I wanted to rely heavily upon it, I also wanted to relieve as much stress from it as was possible. It was my last hope-I wanted to cling to it with all that I had and yet I was put in a position of rationing its use. The pounding continued and I began to despair. “You should have never attempted Cascade and certainly not on a warm day in January”, I thought to myself.

The snow was heavy and I began to be weighted down. If I were buried, there would be no chance for movement or self-rescue. The snow would set like concrete around me and I would have to hope that someone would be able to find me quickly. My mind went to Ian. He had reached a flat unprotected area above me. If the avalanche had hit him, there was no doubt that he was now buried somewhere below me. He needed me to find him quickly. We were horribly ill-prepared: neither of us had Pieps, a radio transceiver device that enables rescuers to find buried comrades. We both desperately needed that left axe to hold and yet the snow continued its assault.

With only one axe remaining I was unable to maintain my back parallel to the ice flow. My right shoulder was pulled away from the iceface and in response my body began to turn toward the falling snow placing more stress on the remaining axe. My helmet was becoming noticeably heavy. Snow had been packed into it through the tiny holes on top; so much so that it effectively tripled its weight and the only way to remove the snow was to melt it out later.

It was some time before I realised that the rumbling had ceased. I was suddenly aware of a beautiful day once again. The axe had held. I noticed a sensation of raggedness in my right arm. The right axe now hung silently from my wrist. I was unhurt.

“Phil!” came a voice. My god I had forgotten about Ian.

“Yes”, I yelled back up to him. I couldn’t muster any better response. It seemed as though I should have other things to say and ask, but for now “yes” was all that mattered.

“Are you okay?” came his voice again. There was no hint of suffering in his voice.

“Yes Ian, and you?” Our conversation seemed too formal. We should have been embracing each other and perhaps we would have were it not for the intervening pitch and the staunch British upbringing common to us both. I pulled the axe from the ice with little difficulty and stepped back into a newly formed mound of heavy-set snow. The small spot next to the face of the icefall, the spot that had given me safety from the deluge of snow, did not look particularly safe and I wondered about the next deluge and where I might go next. I looked up at Ian, who was now standing at the top of the pitch I was supposed to climb.

“Whoa, was that close!” said Ian.

“Ian, I flashed: my family, my life. I thought I was through.”

I do not recall the rest of our discussions on that day. We did not go on to climb Cascade and I haven’t attempted it since, though every time I drive by (you can see the icefall from the Trans-Canada Highway) I can’t resist the urge to study the topography of that climb. To try and figure out where we had been and where the avalanche had come from. I can’t resist the urge to run through all of the “what-if” scenarios. It’s a beautiful sight and a dangerous place. I doubt that I will ever return to climb it.

After a couple of hour’s contemplation we did go on to climb another pitch, a much easier icefall. Our conversations recycled the same theme: how lucky we had been. If we had reached any other place in the climb it could have been disastrous. We were fortunate for the not-so-subtle warning.

The short hike up to Cascade was only slightly more difficult on the way out due to the accumulated snow. In some areas the snow was easily 2 meters deep and it was packed hard. It had set as I had expected and I was glad to be on it and not in it.

There are dangers with climbing and especially with ice climbing. Yet, for me there is no other endeavour that is so totally encompassing of my skills. The clarity of “being” is unparalleled and there is a divine simplicity in the precision of movement. There is no room for the everyday chatter of thought. The need for absolute focus and presence is liberating. As much as it may seem like an anxiety provoking maniacal endeavour, it turns out to be a zen-like peaceful meditation…, perhaps not as comfy.

Ice climbing is something I enjoy with my entirety and the challenge allows my spirit to soar. I am able to breathe fully and life seems clearer. There is a threat to life and some would argue that that is the attraction. But the risk of life need not be significant when ice climbing is approached with focus and clarity, and not with falsely earned “peak bagging” bravado. I find a certain sense of joy in that discipline…, in that clarity.

In the weeks and months that followed that day, I came to the decision that I was not going to pursue ice climbing. I rationalized that I didn’t have the time to properly address the issues of safety; and even if I did, sometimes the safest, most accomplished ice climbers still die. Ice climbing still beckons and I hope to dust off the equipment sometime soon. Certainly there is no readily apparent purpose in climbing waterfall ice. Transferable skills are few. There is no economic advantage, only drawbacks. There is, however, great purpose in doing something well, be it climbing or chess. And in doing something well we excel as living beings. Excellence in leisure clearly distinguishes us as human.

6 Tik Tok Mistakes To Avoid For Building A Good Marketing Strategy

Sometimes we people can lag having something new in a day, but our technology speed would never. Tech fields have touched spikes from the past to now by seeing the launch of social networking sites every day. If it comes to sharing an example, then nothing can beat the craze of Tik Tok marketing that people are still in the same passion and looking to shift to another platform that helps them gain popularity within a night. Counting the estimate from past years, Tik Tok has reached 800 million+ fans worldwide.

Tik Tok has gained massive success till it has ruled the market singlehandedly. But there are some mistakes if tackled with time then, the future can be different for it. If you want to build a good brand identity, you must avoid some mistakes that help you eliminate the situation that might become a hurdle for you in the future ahead.

  • Not Targeting The Right Audience.

The most common reason for not surviving TikTok in the market so long is that it is mainly coming into force to entertain the public at large. As it has whooping popularity with 8-00+ billion followers, people have started placing their ads on that. So selecting the niche where you need to target your audience is very important for avoiding mistakes for existence.

  • Not Being Fun

Before posting something on any social media or engaging platform, we have to analyze the content that needs to be placed accordingly. Like TikTok is a platform for entertainment and fun, you can’t place serious and wooden content there for gaining views. It’s just like you are ruining the pace of things meant to be there.

  • Not Sharing User-Generated Content

It needs to be deeply researched into what kind of videos can gain a high engagement rate. Not all kinds of videos are supposed to be posted there, as TikTok marketingdemands user-generated content. Try to build or gain the trust of your followers by making them feel comfortable with your linking. 

  • Not Feeling The Urgency Of Influencers

People love to believe those they feel more engaged with regularly or more frequently. So taking support from influencers to boost engagement on your platform would be a great move that can help you increase your brand visibility and increase followers’ reach. 

  • Lagging In Hashtag Challenges

If you have stepped into social media platforms, you must have good knowledge of how beautifully you can use hashtags. So sit and research what could be the best hashtags that can go well with your brand reach and how you can use them to increase your audience range.

  • Not Looking Realistic

Excessive promotional activity can snatch the realness out of your brand. Alternatively, you can go with content that indirectly benefits your product or services. Finally, try to adopt a more natural approach to encourage the brand so that followers love to become a part of your journey.

Takeaway

If you are searching for a reference where you can get all the amazing things done with your social media handles, you can reach out on the page ‘Socialboosting“. If your purpose is to increase the number of followers, boost engagement, Quality followers, and marketing tips, you should not delay reaching out there. Give it a right try in just the right way.

Secrets to AI PRAPHRASING TOOL

PRAPHRASING TOOL

If you’re like most people, you probably think that artificial intelligence (AI) is some sort of magic. After all, it can do things like read and understand human language, recognize faces and objects, and even beat humans at complex games like chess.

But the truth is, AI is just a tool. And like any tool, it can be used for good or for bad.

In this article, we’re going to talk about some of the ways that AI can be used for evil purposes. 

We’ll also discuss what you can do to protect yourself from these malicious uses of AI.

1. Creating Fake Videos and Photos

One of the most worrying ways that AI can be used for evil purposes is to create fake videos and photos. This is also known as “deep fakes.”

Deep fakes are created by using a type of AI called a generative adversarial network (GAN). A GAN consists of two neural networks: a generator and a discriminator.

The generator creates fake data, while the discriminator tries to distinguish between the real and fake data. The two networks compete with each other, and as they do, the generator gets better and better at creating realistic fake data. Check RemoteDBA for more details.

Deep fakes have been used to create fake celebrity porn, as well as political propaganda. In 2018, for example, a deep fake video of Barack Obama went viral. The video featured Obama saying things that he never actually said.

2. Stealing Your Personal Data

Another way that AI can be used for evil purposes is to steal your personal data. This is possible because many popular applications and websites use AI to recommend content to you based on your interests.

In order to do this, these applications and websites need to collect data about you. This includes things like your age, gender, location, and what you like to do online.

Once they have this data, they can sell it to advertisers or use it to influence your behavior.

3. Manipulating the Stock Market

AI can also be used to manipulate the stock market. This is possible because there are now algorithms that can automatically trade stocks based on certain conditions.

Some of these algorithms are designed to take advantage of human behavior. For example, they may buy stocks when prices are low and sell them when prices are high. This can result in huge profits for the people who own these algorithms, but it can also crash the stock market.

4. Disrupting Elections

AI can also be used to disrupt elections. This is possible because AI can be used to create fake news articles and social media posts. These fake articles and posts can then be spread by bots, which are automated software programs that control online accounts.

Bots can be used to automatically like, share, and comment on content. They can also be used to message people en masse. This means that they can easily influence what people see on social media and other online platforms.

If you’re like most people, you probably think that the best way to get better at paraphrasing is to practice on your own. However, this isn’t always the case. While it’s true that practice makes perfect, there are some other things that you can do to help improve your paraphrasing skills. 

In this article, we’ll share with you some of the secrets to becoming a master paraphrase.

The first secret is to understand what you’re reading. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s actually very important. When you’re reading something, take the time to think about what it means. If you can’t understand it, chances are you won’t be able to paraphrase it correctly. 

The second secret is to take your time. Don’t try to paraphrase something if you’re in a hurry. If you rush, you’re likely to make mistakes. Instead, take your time and focus on getting it right. 

The third secret is to practice, practice, and practice. The more you practice, the better you’ll become at paraphrasing. To find a text that you can use for practice and start working on it. 

Conclusion:

By following these secrets, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a master paraphrase. So get out there and start practicing!

If you want to improve your paraphrasing skills, there are a few things you can do. One is to practice on your own, and another is to understand what you’re reading. You should also take your time when paraphrasing, and focus on getting it right. And finally, keep practicing!
