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.

(No effigies were burnt, and no death metal was heard. Just bluegrass. Sorry Werner.)
