Congratulations Mike on blowing at embers 5000 strong that won't stop burning. This thread is an Oasis of possibilities in a sea of occasional discontent.

Thanks, man !

There was ice, but my Number-Two bike is pretty dependable (even if Foodeater makes fun of it). Which is good, since my Number One bike was stolen last month.

As to the other thing, Harry would have won the Grand Prize if he hadn't been so tentative. "Is it Tantalus Wall somewhere?" Of course it's f*#king Tantalus Wall. Look at that tiny little tree way way up at the top. Remember the "hammer throw?" Tie a rope to your hammer and huck it way up and around that tree and save yourself twenty feet of aiding.

Anyway, the picture was taken from above the big roof when I climbed it with Mr. Serl back in the dinosaur age.

Well Big Mike, Jim's feet are almost as big as yours so those size 18 rock shoes will be great for the alpine

Yeeehaw! I hate to disappoint, but their only size 13. Hopefully they will still be big enough to accommodate extra sock layers for alpine missions. ;)

The best thing about the climbing at Squamish has always been the good company. Who can say something other ?

The Yoda of our great granite lump will remain as Jim Sinclair. What a guy !

Who here has pressed on with more pressing matters concerning climbing, when faced down by the withering coffee cup and his good presence ?

Hurray for Big Jim.

Many thanks for this thread, Big Mike, and all the contributors.

Thanks David for putting the headache to rest.



On the Tantalus Wall of today the double curve exfoliation feature is the only thing I can be sure of in Ghost's photo. Here is the section just above the big roof and tree:

WTF, I get sick, self medicate with Bourbon and this thread hits 5000?

I'm off to Cochise Stronghold and JT for the rest of the winter and will post some photos of me slaying the moderates.
