About 20 years ago, I went on a fishing trip with my dad and uncle to a remote lake in Canada. The lake was about a quarter mile wide and 30 miles long. I assume it was glacier carved. We were the only ones on the lake. The law was you could only keep 2 fish per person each day. The lake was filled with fish and we did a lot of catch and release (only keeping a fish if we hurt it). To some, it would seem silly to have a limit on fishing when there was such an abundance of fish.

As my uncle put it: "If you don't like their laws, stay out of the country. This is their country and they make the laws."

My uncle was right.

If Pete does not like our rule of not hucking his haul bag, he should not come here.

But this thread has the malodorous flavor of a lynching. Let he who is without sin tie the rope.

On Belay motherf*#ker!


Times were different, no shame, Ron... not as many on the cap'n I'm sure, and we all make mistakes in life.

Wait, so the consensus is... anger about him dropping his bags? I think we still need a few hundred more posts to really know how people feel about it.

What JStan said.

Reckless endangerment is a crime consisting of acts that create a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. The accused person isn't required to intend the resulting or potential harm, but must have acted in a way that showed a disregard for the foreseeable consequences of the actions.

granite you're right how soon we forget just a few days ago Pete was helping Travis live and now people want to hang him high for being a tosser.

I'm going to try and have beers with fox this week and he will tell me whats up.

What if they were attacked by a large number of naked women on top and accidentally dropped the bags?

For the record I'm not advocating lynching Pete, and I know they were down a partner but this kinda of thing just is not acceptable.

Silver I respect you but one act that any good person would do when someone is in need of medial attention is quite different from endangering the lives of others. Again apples vs oranges

Just put him on the government's "No US Entry" list. That way he can spend his vacations taking 40 days to aid up Squamish and toss his bags there.

When Pete does something like this, he's the American assassin - he has dual citizenship. So you can't keep him out.

And please don't be throwing your bags off Baffin Island. It makes a mess in a real wilderness, plus only a fool would be separated from her/his equipment in that environment.

As I said a few times in this thread.

I like Pete. But regardless even if he was my best friend... hell especially if he was my best friend I'd have to take him to task for this.

Does not mean I wont be glad to see him again sometime .. hell.. I'd be glad to climb with him.

Once he stops dropping bags for once and all

Which has to happen

Base your right one act does not make amens for this, but i think its necessary to remind some that Pete is a good person not just a tosser.

Ill end with this here and I hate doing it on the last post on a page but take my word on this.

I spoke to Pete he gets it now. It will never happen again. He loves the valley he loves the big rock he loves this community of climbers and he would never want to hurt anyone.

He is sorry he will stay away from the bridge, he will earn your trust through actions not words and I for one am willing to believe Pete.

Someone runs to call 911 when a guy who is essentially part of his climbing team at the time gets hurt...and you expect accolades for that? F*#kin'a man, that's bare minimum I'd expect, not some heroic achievement. Get your goggles on straight, you're not seeing this very clearly IMO.

Tossing bags, in prime season, when there WAS someone at the base...not
"could be", WAS someone right next to the drop he trying to even the karmic balance? Help save one, kill another to compensate?
