The rock is a medium gray, so just about any color rope will look fine in your photos.

Yes, Colin is sorely missed. I'm sorry I couldn't attend the memorial for him at the end of August - an uncle's funeral in Saskatchewan was the same day. Colin was always good company, whether while climbing, in camp, or Access Society stuff.

Fabulous shots. Love the one of the stump from ago. When I was a kid they were everywhere. Now the second growth is becoming mature and those old stumps are rotting to oblivion. I imagine an entire generation is being raised on the south coast here who have no idea what the little notches for the springboards are.......

Thanks for posting up, Andy!

Looks like I'm not making it back up there fora while. I appear to be south of the border already, but next season... Shenanigans!

why do you guys always do it first week of May? Thats always the CAA AGM and crag fest week in Penticton. Shouldn't it dry out just a couple of weeks more?

BK, I believe it's not always been the first wknd in May. That's how it worked out this year.

Good heads up on the CAA meeting though.

This event has a good record for blue sky, btw... even when it's raining!

It was first week last year too. Same deal with conflict with the CAA meeting. I have yet to make it out there - but I have flown over it a few times. The main wall looks pretty good! Has anyone checked out the big wall in the upper Danniels valley?

To anyone who's interested... this years Adopt a Crag / "Jamboree" went well!

25+ in attendance, mostly local crew, good spirit, and tons of sharing!!

Thanks to CASBC for their help , and shwag. Very much appreciated!

And to Christie Dionne for... everything!

Many good projects were completed, really enhancing the "climber comfort" to the area. Come check it out!!

The camp itself now has an "official" designation w/ the Province.

There was a group "dedication" of the name of the camp. Emotional, yet, solid, and with great spirit.

Good weather... local beer... good , good climbing..., whippers, salmon, Love,herbs, tears, and "shinnanigans" indeed!

Anyway, just thought I'd "report".

Here's some pics:

Cheers!

An Owl arrived in the camp late later Sun. eve... A few uf us were lingering, cleaning up, packin, and this Owl is hollerin' away... for ... awhile! After half an hour, this Owl gets closer to camp up a tree, we go stand @ the base, and he's lookin' right at us, gesturing, and hootin' away.
Never seen an owl do this! Goes on for an hour. Then we GOT IT.

Anyway, CAD sure liked his hoots, eh!!

Peace.

Many thanks!! I couldn't make it this year due to family commitments, but hopefully in 2013.

Bump for a good thread, plus a question. Has anyone been to or climbed Mount Denman, or in that area? A friend is interested in giving it a try.
