Maybe the blackcomb spire will be ready for an ascent next week if this inversion rumour becomes reality? BK what do you think? Too much snow still or is it possible?

The 11 will be good to go! The main trad route always has a snow patch to deal with...

Here is a historical pic from 1990 of the base of Burgers and Fries. The VOC to blame for the webbing harness and hip belay. Everything else is my fault.

The scariest thing about this pic is that there was still vegetation at the bottom of Burgers and Fries in 1990.

TKC I am presently working undercovers in Tehran, infill-trating the Ayatollahs harem - please do not mention my name again on the internet until I return to Canada.

Thank you

Oplo, it looks as if they are standing and flying kites! Great photo.

I can't claim to be anything other than a model in that pic. It was taken by Ken Legg. A couple years later the slide made its way into my hands.

Haha Drew, outed! I knew u guys used to do some sketchy stuff but making your harness out of athletic tape just seems like a bad idea.
Edit- thanks Mike, would there be snow on top (could u top out?) or would it just be the first pitch that is doable, sorry I should just go check it out but like Anders I don't really do blackcomb, that & I'm lazy.

Hey thanks Bruce, sounds awesome. Morning sun right? I'd love to fire a bolt in but me batteries are pretty good for 1 bolt each in summer temps so I'd be pretty f'in surprised if I could pick my nose with a 3/8 bit on top of Blackcomb in Jan. -maybe I could do my best Sid Cormier impression & smash some iron in there.

The first pitch is relentless 10 - 11 pet wall climbing.

Sounds like a good place to practice dry tooling. It'd fit in with the industrial ambience, too.

Dru, nice period photo!

Anyone up for a gentle outing Saturday or Sunday?

Perhaps for some, Blackcomb and Blackcomb Spire are untrammeled ƃuıʞɔnɟ wilderness. Not for me.

Thanks Bruce, i'll let u know. If not this stretch of high pressure, sometime this winter for sure. We'll see how warm it gets, I just started to get feeling back in my fingers yesterday from pet last week.

I preferred climbing and skiing in that area before it was developed. The fact that the land was later taken out of Garibaldi Park for private development without any real public process still ƃuıʞɔnɟ rankles.

I admit that I have tried the Blackcomb lifts. Once.

No its not wilderness but neither is squamish

Understatement of the year award for that one. Squamish is pretty much top-of-the heap for industrial-ambiance climbing. Been a long time since I've been in the country above and behind Whistler and Blackcomb, so I can't comment on that, but anybody who loves Squamish can hardly be bothered by any kind of pollution -- noise, human, industrial, whatever.
