Sounds like the olden days Relic, where some thought a course marshal, like for golf, would help things move along.

Perry, isn't there a music festival in Squamish this Saturday (25th), then the big Vancouver-Whistler bicycle tour on the 8th? Would either make a difference?

When you say "new", do you mean half a purple one, a horrible stiff white one with a knot in the middle, and an orange one thats starting to look a little beat along with a crappy old crab...... :-) I can arrange for beer and stories to be exchanged for the orange one in September....

Maybe Sept 8 would be best as to avoid the festival? Grand Fondo won't make much difference I don't think as they just ride through town... Traffic might be busy but should mellow out later in the day...

My first guess is that Harry's photos are from Princess Louisa Inlet and area, but every fjord up and down the coast has similar features.

Mike,

Pending confirmation with a couple key players (like Ms. Chief!), I'm aiming for Saturday Sept. 8 for the 1st Annual Psyche Ledge Rendezvous. If that conflicts with someone's plans for a massive road ride on Hwy 99, a BBQ, Outdoor Rock Concert, pedicure or Yoga retreat, I DON"T CARE!

We planned a long weekend in Squamish not knowing that we’d be celebrating BC Day. We need to have BC Day in Tacoma... We did a bunch of relatively new (for me) routes in stellar August weather, especially for Squamish. On Friday at 2 p.m. we held number 3 in the queue for Skywlaker. Despite the line, it was fun, with a casual approach that should take some of the pressure off of Diedre. Saturday had temps in the 90s (32°C) so we headed for Europa, a 7-pitch, alpine-flavored, tragically misunderstood route. Yeah it was a bit loose in places but the setting was great and there were no crowds. If it was an alpine route in the Cascades it would probably see more ascents, espeically on a 3-day weekend. Sunday, with more high temps, we played on the Apron with Rambles and Over the Rainbow. We ended the trip with a drive up the Cheakamus R. Canyon and had a blast on Star Check Aręte, 5.9 (one well protected move). Great trip to a great place
We both grinned like this the whole route
