k_statealan Posted January 16, 2005 Share Posted January 16, 2005 Anything (out of the ordinary for you) dangerous or stupid you've ever done. A cliffiside one for an avid rockclimber doesn't count. A cliffside one for a non-rock climber would. Me: Hiking a wooded trail at 1 am with sheet ice (it was under 10 degrees) all over the area. Fell once just getting from my car to the trailhead. I ended up walking about 3/4 of a mile and fell a couple of more times over the next hour and a half. Got turned around and took the wrong trail. Fortunately, I have a good sense of direction, there was a near full moon, and some lights from the city were just over the hill. I finally got to a point where the trail split uphill up a very slick trail or downhill running beside a dropoff to a creek. I took option 3: grab onto trees and chop footholds in the ice and climb to the top of the hill. Dropped the flashlight once and it slid 15' back down the hill. Never do anything like that again. And to top it off, the cache was missing. If I had read the logs I would have known that. Quote Link to comment
