    Big thank you to Jake Guzman for being the reason we went and found this cabin, he's an amazing photographer check out his work here:
    Thank you to Alex Haraus for coming with us and keeping us safe:
    We climbed to one of the most isolated house's in the world... Please do not try this yourself. Several sections were really dangerous and had help from both Jake and Alex who were incredible. Hope you enjoy this story because we had an absolutely incredible time on this one even though it was physically challenging. Cheers!

      Dollars to doughnuts this was part of the Civilian Conservation Corps' efforts. Early in his presidency, Roosevelt created all sorts of employment initiatives to give young men jobs and aid struggling families during the Depression. (I believe two thirds of their wage had to be sent home to their parents.) Many of the trails hikers use today were blazed, maintained, or rejuvenated by the CCC, as well as fire look-outs like this one and roads through wilderness areas.

      I just found this channel. HOW?WHY this channel has only now been recommended me, I don't know. This is my new BEST CHANNEL on YT. This is exactly why I quite buying conventional cable almost 20 years ago.
      The production, stories, narration and spirituality are simply the best. Reminds me of a more sane, less troubled Anthony Bourdain approach to exploration and commentary.

I would love to hear more and will appreciate slower peace of the video to enjoy the moment even more. But that's just me. Great place to be! EDIT: I have to add that I found below in the comments a thread where Don and Stefan responds in the comments more what actually happened, and I understand the approach you guys decided to take. Great adventure!

    I absolutely loved this video, as I do all their videos, but my favorite part was at the very end when Thomas said that Alex, Jake and Stefan all bonded and continued going on hikes together 💖 Truly the best part of their videos is when people make real connections and new bonds with others from their experiences together. The true meaning behind what it really means to seek discomfort is to not only do something really difficult and out of your comfort zone but to make new connections with people that you had never thought possible before doing something outside of your comfort zone and growing and learning together. These guys are truly an inspiration to what it means to be human and learn and grow in life, it's the most beautiful thing about life to me. Now I just got to follow along and stop hiding from my discomfort!! Thank you guys for all of your videos and inspirations to this world, y'all are really amazing people 💖💖💖

    Literally teared up at the end of the video - Alex's experience has always been mine in that I don't know anyone who enjoys doing the things I do in regards to the wilderness and hiking. The last line you ended the video on was really touching and I suppose it just makes me think that I need to say yes to things, even things that might not interest me, because those favours return themselves.

    That is amazing! The longest hike I’ve done is up a Munro in Scotland, about 1KM high. It was the most physically and mentally demanding thing I’ve ever done, particularly because it was raining heavily, so I can’t imagine how difficult it was climbing to that cabin. Huge respect to you all for doing it, and to the volunteers who do that climb regularly!

      I agree with you about morale. Having a positive mindset will get you up and over, around and through every harsh obstacle you will come across. The trick is to look for small things you love and appreciate along your path. A pretty flower, a cute bug, a nice view or just something goofy you experience. I've traveled a lot across America and even walked from Florida to California.

    I randomly came across your channel and I'm so glad I did!!! Watching you guys do amazing things but most of all the bonds you make with the local people no matter where or when and the bond you guys have together is a beautiful thing! The zest for life,travel and cultural exchanges are so heartwarming and genuine things I've seen on Clip-Share! The kind of adventures you go on are mind opening and that can only be a good correction great for all. Tolerance of others culture and beliefs is not as rare as it used to be but still something we all as humans have to work on together and we have to solve it together and groups like yours on Clip-Share are teaching that it can be done!!! Well done for such great entertainment and showing us your experiences in such a thoughtful way. Namaste

      @Glenn Wall That's my bet, too. Make a nice bundle of parts or even the entire hut somewhere nicely accessible and flat, then have a nicely beefy Sikorsky Skycrane or S-58 carry it where two people put some holes into the rock and cemented in anchors for it. In winters, this hut must withstand insane conditions!

      They used pack animals to carry the materials until they reached the final rocky area with the ladders. Then a tram system was built with ropes to carry it the rest of the way up. What's even more interesting is they had to blast the top off of the rock the cabin is on in order to have a flat surface to build on. They most likely used TNT for tha

    If you're wondering where this place is, it's called three fingers lookout. It's in the Mt. Baker - Snoqualmie area. It's hard to find this cabin using a Google search because Washington state has at least 50 fire lookouts that look just like this one but are much easier to hike to. This one is precariously perched on a cliff and also very difficult to hike to. Experienced technical hikers only.

    • Stefan Herzog
      Stefan Herzog 7 months ago +216

      @VJ Mazí I had no idea who they were. I was there alone. I had hiked this a month before but couldn't get to the top because I didn't have the proper gear and there was much more glacier coverage. At the point I turned back I told myself this isn't worth possibly dying over. Cause I was alone then too.
      Coolest thing was if I got up there I would have never met these cool guys cause I wouldn't have gone again a month later.
      Or. Ya know. I would have been dead.

    • VJ Mazí
      VJ Mazí 7 months ago +61

      @Stefan Herzog That's awesome and I think it makes for an even better story! I wish they had asked you these things and included them in the video, because the fact that they ran into a total stranger who was alone and not in a group on the way up was one of the most fascinating things about the video. That's flippin' amazing, man.
      I would also like to know more about Don coming up alone even though he's obviously done it many times. Did you pass him on your way back down as he was coming up? Also, I would've loved to see you stay and go back down with the group instead of heading back down on your own, but you obviously have plenty of experience and confidence in your abilities.
      If you're taking these types of challenges all alone, you should totally make a Clip-Share channel to document your travels. I think lots of people would watch. Either way, we're all glad you made it to the top and back down safely!

    • Stefan Herzog
      Stefan Herzog 7 months ago +129

      @VJ Mazí thanks man plenty of people tell me I should but the equipment costs a lot of money and it's pretty hefty to carry. Those guys were carrying lots of filming gear to make a great product. There's also a lot of video editing that Tommy does, which takes a degree and patience I just don't see myself making time for.
      I did run into Don on the way down. He sure seemed to be a crusty type of dude and hope they all got along up there.
      I needed to be somewhere that evening and following day, so I headed out before them.
      The coolest part that was not mentioned was I saw them getting ready in the morning. They asked what I was up to and I told them I wasn't going to spend the night up there because I really didn't need to I just wanted to get up there and experience that. I also know people go up there as couples or groups in a more sentimental setting and I didn't want to impose on their experience because they came out from France to experience this.
      They passed me on the way up because I had a huff huff bike and they had e-bikes. When I got to the top no one was there and I was like man I wonder if they made a wrong turn or something.
      When I was a good ways down the mountain I ran into them on their way up and asked how the hell did I beat you guys to the top? This was a significant ways down the peak as well. We chatted for like twenty minutes. I didn't want to go but I needed to get to my camp site where I pitched my tent before dark.
      I was maybe eight minutes where I was climbing that rope to the top of the spine where I heard "HEY STEFAN" It was then I popped my head over the ridge just like a gopher and said. "YEAH?" "WE'RE GOING TO HAVE DONE WHISKEY TONIGHT IN THE CABIN IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT SENTIMENTAL!" (This was Alex, Tommy had suggested to the group that they should invite me) *Paused* "FUCK YEAH!!!" and down I went that rope again and up that leg of the mountain and rickety ladder again.
      I can't thank those guys enough for asking me to join them. I really got to know each and everyone of those guys, they all are raw and so very humble. Beyond that I had no idea what I was turning away from and missing out on the most fantastic sunrise and sunset. Very fortunate I went twice and experienced this adventure with these guys.

      @Stefan Herzog crusty...hope that is a good thing. I had left the parking area at 5am with a 44 lbs pack and a board strapped to my back and I was celebrating my 64th birthday. I probably was a bit crusty when I got there about 3:30pm. They were young, fresh and bored from staying there the night before. I was a little tired and they were not but we shared a very special place together that night and had a great morning. They did not mention we watched the Bolt Creek fire from the lookout that morning. I did share stories with them. The history of the lookout IS the real story. Don

      @Jackson Gayton much appreciated man, I will say there was a lot of off screen footage where we all bonded. I think it was meant to be just that. It wouldn't be natural if a camera was involved you know?
      Who knows. Maybe I'll be seeing yes theory again for another adventure. Or perhaps here from Alex and Jake. If not. I sure had a hell of a time getting to know them and introduced to this channel.
      I will say too the beautiful thing about this is since I moved away from home in 2018 people ask me what I do and now I can show them this video. Simply beautiful stuff. Cause an explanation and photos doesn't capture what theses guys did.

    • Media Content

      @Stefan Herzog You’ve inspired me to do more stuff on my own and to stop waiting to “find my tribe” to do the things I want to do. I mean, I’m not planning to do any dangerous hikes - although I do enjoy watching you who have the courage and the physical ability to do such things, but I have a lot of other things I’ve been putting off until I felt like I had a supportive group to do them with. Eff it. You going out there on your own has told me that you can find likeminded people along the way. And they may just be people you bond with for one adventure, or they may become lifelong friends. Either way it’s worth the experience. ❤

    There are a great many stories about the Three Fingers Lookout. Once the Search and Rescue team had to be called in because a group of hikers had climbed to the lookout without proper clothing just as a storm closed in. The rescuers had to carry up the required clothing and equipment before escorting the hikers out. Considering what a challenge the hikers in this video had during great weather, going up there in a snow storm would have required tremendous stamina. During the time the lookout was manned, it was said one of the lookouts developed such a case of acrophobia he could not get up off the floor and had to be carried out. If one does a google search for images of the Three Fingers Lookout in Winter, there are some stunning views.

    I like how you are all are so genuine and real friends and a sense of humor. It's amazing to imagine I was once that young and of that energy and excited about the natural world. I wondered how a cabin like that could survive the extremes of weather and see there were big cables holding it down. I don't see how they take care of sewage up there. Do they helicopter out maybe a sewage tank periodically? Very good videography and editing and those drone shots were spectacular! What a dream of an adventure! It was a real Iron Man or triathlon challenge to get there! It was a greatl escape and forgot about my hunger now a half hour away from ending a 48 hour fast. I really like it too that you meditate! You are a motley crew who really knows how to enjoy life! Thanks!

    I went there and climbed this alone, it was the most breath taking event in my life. It was my way to say goodbye to one of my brothers who died of cancer. It is so far from other people that when the only other two on the mountain passed me as they were coming down, it was then I knew I was truly alone.

      @Average Subscriber much harder in the winter months. I've known only two people to do the entire ascent in the winter. Becomes a technical climb and you have to deal with and face snow fields that become much more dangerous. Also the cabin was first built with a combination of carried in supplies and helicopter assistance. Part of why it only lasted for 6 months was the difficulty in keeping it well supplied. The remoteness also meant a higher upkeep than originally planned. Combined with better methods it quickly became obsolete. Amazing history.

    it boggles my mind how they managed to build that cabin on that rickety precipice. The amount of dedication to carry the materials, let alone yourself, up and down the mountain is unfathomable.
    edit: read the wikipedia article on how the place was built, very interesting. Was built by Harold Engles and Fred Benesh over a period of 3 years.
