Where in the world is RYAND!

If you're out there, please regale us with stories and photos of your trip to Uhmerika, with pictures please and anecdotes involving close calls with the state troopers and dangerous mantels at the top of massive highballs and long Tuolumne solos and topless California babes with ice cold refreshments.

They thought, "Darn that wall looks cool, and no one's climbed it yet?"

I'm sure they wouldn't have much concern so long as people don't start fly boarding at the spit.

Cool photo!

..............that the wind was comin' up the sound from the south meaning a weather change might be in the offing ?

LOL good one!!

Took a few pics last weekend on Genesis 10a, the old murrin classic.






Rick on the scariest part of the climb... ;)





Such a beautiful thin crack with excellent face holds.



One stout 10a......

Nice photos! That's a great zone, met Luke & Nathan there once so I hold it dear to my heart, speaking of- it sounds like you have quite the dilemma there over where to go Luke???

Luke,

You're going to Sascratchyerbum instead of the Valley ?
Ghost is from Sascratchyerbum, that's why he's so prickly.

Off for a stint in the uranium mines? Lotsa granite in Sask. Too bad it's all a mile underground.

Nah. Total myth. There's more granite in Sask than there is in California. And it's not underground. It just is the ground in the northern part of that province. But it's flat. It doesn't rise up the way you want it to.

I guided (paddling) in northern Sask when I was young. The whole place is nothing but granite. Precambrian Shield. Nothing higher than a few feet though.
