I guess this would be enticing for the older persons with the money to buy an adventure. I'm imagining a 25 or 30 year old guy impulsively buying this opportunity because he's sick of his mundane life in the office.
But what are you really paying for? Safety techniques, experience, adventure, excitement, self-justification? I'm starting to wonder if there's really a market for this type of business, and in the PNW with the Cascades right there, I'm sure there is. Makes me feel like I could start my own business doing this. I'd call it Bear Guides - as in I am Bear guiding you up the mountain. I already have friends begging to take them with me the next mountain I climb. Part of me wants to say "Maybe I will if you pay me $625!"
