Sweet pics Andy. Something tells me you're right on the money.

Sorry for picking on you Anders, I get carried away with pointless acronym sometimes...

My intentions were not for you to be the butt of my shitty joke, rather a joke about shitty butts, that just happened to involve you, since you are the history professional

Andy I do believe you are correct. Cool pics indeed. It is an excellent pitch, as a result of mr Frimers diligent cleaning.

Don't worry, it seems the falcons were the ones who got the last laugh this spring when they took up residence on the 10c corner directly above the flats. They shut down that real estate for 3 months this summer! ;)

Hmm, I really don't know where Israel found that boulder at Shannon Falls. Cool, thanks for the video post.

Just curious...

Has anyone in this world climbed Tattered Tights before? I think it might just be the most totally way out there obscura climbing possible.

Could be a mission for S.T.U.C.K.

Beautiful work, TH.

Sure, tag on Tattered Tights after Parallel Passages.


No, I'm not worried about the falcons.

Mighty Hiker, one day I will call you when a seat becomes available and invite you on one my of my heli hiking adventures. You really gotta try it! Youll love it. Im sure we can get you to pose for the odd photo too. Im also all for via ferratas and gondolas.it is all about location, location, location. Standing in Squamish or at the Haberl hut you cant see the bolts on Dione!

Having spent several hundred hours in helicopters, almost all for work, I'll pass. I'm also a firm believer in appropriateness, and to me, if something can be reached in a day on foot, that's how I'll do it. Even if it might be more fun or 'convenient' to use a helicopter and climb an out of place bolted route. Sorry, but we need to protect what we have, not just do whatever we feel like. The developers and commercial interests usually don't care, but we know better.

If people want an experience "just like the Alps", they can go there for it.

As for the posing, someone took a photo of me yesterday, litter stick and garbage bag in hand, with my sunhat. Will that do?

Mighty,

Well said! Could not agree more. This here folks, will never be the alps. And, if you try to make it something it's not, you'll just end up with some B-movie version of Disneyland.

I know I'm in the minority, but I think the coolest things on this earth are the wildest, hardest to get to and full of mystery. Most folks around me now seem to be ok with paving our approaches and shaving down our mountains to fit their personal comfort level.

The other I'm not sure.

Here's another shot from that day, Fish Boy actually caught this can at Exasperalooza and threw it back at the crowd. Although it was impressive, it probably didn't help his time.





I love crack. What can I say? I geuss I'm just a crack addict...

Just spent a few days last week at Squamish, and it was my first time there without rain. I actually got to climb, and am starting to get what all the hype's about. What an awesome place!

Got to spend the evening watching the Reel Rock 7 films, as well, down at the Howe Sound Brewery.

And Exasperator...that's the kind of finger crack I have dreams about. So stinkin' fun!
