Sounds like a plan lads! Would be nice to put faces to some names from the interweb. Fear not Luke, I'll have your cams back to you the 4th or 5th. In bishop til then, trying to remember what this free climbing sh#t is about again...

Thanks to every one who Donated to the Habitat for Humanity fundraiser on behalf of my halfassed attempt at an improbable winter* solo ascent of the Grandwall. Despite a bogus attempt at my projected goal, I teamed up with Aislinn and Carmen Merkel and along with our avalanche poodle Yula we Summited** the first peak of the the Stawamus Chief at approx. 1:37 pm Saturday Dec. 15 2012.

We made it !

To top it off we headed down to the fundraising marathon "grand finale" at the Hive and got bolder...

In the Shadow of the Chief is on TV right now. Just watched Hamish solo the split pillar! There is some cool footage of guys climbing the Grand, including a guy falling off the Roman Chimneys crux pitch.

Who were the climbers in it? They look familiar. Not Ed and Jim, the new guys I mean.

Edit. it was Adam Diamond and Connie Amelunxen. I didn't recognize Adam with shorter hair.

You can buy a copy of the DVD at the adventure centre in Squamish. 30% off right now, so only ~$18 or something. Get it Friday before the soiree.

hilarious Bruce.

I think I found a live stream of the Knowledge network.. It says the station is offline at present hoping the show comes on as I have yet to see it in its entirety.

My dad n law taped it for me a few years back. I may be just a biased sh#t head who lives in Squamish but I think it's one of the best climbing flicks out there. That one fishboy posted & masters of stone are pretty rad too.

OK, so what are the derangements for Friday? For those living in the southern suburbs of Squamish - greater Vancouver, that is - where and when should we meet? I'd like to head up in time to pick up some bread at the Golden Crust, i.e. by say 4:00 or a bit earlier. If there's time to get something to eat, all the better.

Those interested could meet at Saint David's (upper levels & Taylor Way) at say 4:00 PM. Or?

Perry, how is access to your place through the snowdrifts? What should we bring besides ourselves and something to drink and eat?

I'll head back Friday night, at a not unreasonable hour.

Waterproof footwear.
Don't wear anything you don't want burned by sparks.

Forecast, not horrendous, clouds and snow flurries.
