If he only went to 700 feet I'm not sure why they had to emphasis the mountain's height.

he likely didn't "fall" but slid.

the Cascade volcanoes are deceptively simple mountains to climb in the mountaineering world.  Adams and Hood each have routes that are basically extreme hikes.  because of this people get seriously hurt every year because they don't take the risks seriously.

Must be really obvious so no need to explain.

Like hot snow in Brazil. That's how I fall up.
 
2022-07-06 10:08:22 PM  
To go up, you just throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Easy.  You forget how to land.

Before rescuers arrived, a combat comptroller started giving the climber medical care.

They're just making shiat up now.

In just one weekend a month and two weeks a year, develop the skills you need to take you from the high stakes world of corporate finance to the relative calm of the battlefield.  With GAAP, you can.

I always knew my TI-83 was combat ready.

Just stop paying the gravity bill and wait til they shut it off.

Are you serious?
Do none of you speak English?
The actual wording from the headline,"falls up to 700 feet"
The "up to" part is pretty standard English.
It means an amount or quantity that maybe less than but not greater than.

The distance the climber fell could be 699 but not more than 700 feet.

A man of faith walks on a beach. He always sees two sets of footprints in the sand. He knows it's Jesus walking with him. When his trek gets difficult, he notices only one set of footprints. He beseeches his savior, "Lord, why do you forsake me in my time of need?" Jesus smiles and says sagely, "My son, I was flying."

I am fed up to my eyeballs with people who are no fun at parties.

/did I do that right?

Maybe I'm the silly one. But you won't find me fighting that force anytime soon. I have graver villains to face than that.

OTOH, if you're tumbling down the mountain, you might just impale yourself on the axe.

Carry TWO, and always have one set before you move.

CSB: I was on Mt Rainier back in 1999. Exceptionally clear day. I could see easily into the bowl of Mt St Helens, and Mt Hood was visible at 112 miles.

Where I grew up, there were ropes in the back yard.  Most kids my age in the 1980's would practice their Tarzan styles... yeah... I was different.  I would hang by my feet from those ropes, upside down, and just... look around.  I would look around at the property, across to neighbor's areas, and I would wonder...

If I was to break free from the rope, which way would I start falling?

It was both terrifying and fascinating at the same time.
