Ryand- Thanks, Chasing Rainbows was rad! I will be going back to lead it when i'm feeling stonger. Definetly recommended!

Andy- Thank you so much! Those pictures are amazing!! Definetly stoke to get up there.

Relic- We should rap in and I can take photos from above.

I wasn't planning on posting any pics tonight but Andy inspired this reply.

I've heard that second pitch grade is a sandbag too.

Take the Gondola from the Howe Sound Brewpub to the Second Summit, then have your hired sportsmen lower you to the base of the first pitch.

Come on now, this ain't real but you definetly could rent a heli if you're feeling spendy. ;)

Sounds good. Is Milennium Falcon and Europa closed for falcon season too? Otherwise better bring the helmets. Probably not a bad idea anyways.

What are you doing today Bruce? Wanna go find some dry rock?

I don't want to be a pest but that's why you two guys need a couple of bikes. Trails are perfect today so you have your back up plan.

Apparently exasperator is dry. Going to meet the gang there now. Call me.

My hardtail needs much love. It still has the clip in road bike pedals not flats like you guys use today. Maybe ill get it fixed up.

Clipping in is mandatory. Suffering away on flats is kind of like climbing without chalk.

The sun has been shining for much of the day here. My desk, keyboard, computer, and monitor have been dry all day as I work. My chair has been dry. My clothes have been comfortable and dry. I have had really good coffee, juice, food, and drink.

So why am I not pleased?

The traverse, and related activities, ought to be kept as low profile as possible. The parks people for West Vancouver were once asked about whether it should be put in a climbing guidebook, and they said if that was done, they'd close the area to climbing. Perhaps partier impacts at Juniper Point in Lighthouse Park contributed to that, but still, reason to be careful.

Kyle had a big send day yesterday, and Luke was nice enough to hang a rope on Exasperator for me so I had a big photo day. Here's a teaser.

My shadow with Kyle on the sharp end of Exasperator 10c


Super good locks on the first pitch.


Almost at the first anchor!


Going climbing... more later...
