There's Hope for the Climbing Community
Posted on: March 12, 2008
I saw the post alerting people about poor, okay extremely dangerous, instructional videos on YouTube and I found a post on www.cascadeclimbers.com from a guy who actually called up the creator of the videos to figure out why a supposed guide was posting such horribly inaccurate material. The guy admitted that he had no formal training and has petitioned Expert Village to remove most of the videos from YouTube. Thanks to avitripp for actually contacting the guy and remedying the situation instead of just sitting back and laughing and cringing like everyone else did. Way to be proactive and supportive of the climbing community.
