FOCUS HERE: By chancing it and testing your skills, in the event of an emergency, YOU are pulling those people into a dangerous situation.
As Base said: "the last think I want to do is to call the rescue"
With a little bit more of practice, I will be at the level to deal with four thousand meter in the west. Maybe the Denali. For me, it is a training to higher mountain. Why do I train? To be able to be as safe as any one else climber can be.
"Always be prepared to make your own assessment of travel and weather conditions." Means that you can adapt to any situation...not just when you, as a whole, decide that it is a good day or a bad day, but any time.
In an other post, a guy wanted to hicked the Mt Washington...Dman tod him to do so because he was in the navy. I asked him if he climbed in a tent in cold weather and to find a place when he can train to do it...like harvard cabin, before attempting the traverse. I did a kind of traverse before, climb damnation in solo, hike to the summit, went down by the south in direction of jackson, get out of the protect watershed, and have the most wonderfull night in my bivy.. and star all over the place. The next morning, I wake up, take my pack sack and hike down. As I turned a corner, I was struck by a wind of 80 miles per hours and more. I wasn't able to stay in my feet and have to crawl for three hours a trail of twenty minutes. Even if I call some one, nobody can reach me that day.
But I was prepared because I went in the mountain before to train on similar weather, althought less intense.
Between training in many places and reading a awardness board...I will say train because you will: ""Always be prepared to make your own assessment of travel and weather conditions." And if you train a lot, the last think that you are going to do is to call the rescue because it means that you are wrong, still better than dead.
