He meant to say a Scottish piece of tail.

And it might be starting to form but it wouldn't be very nice. angels crest on the otherhand has been in fine shape for a month or so now.

I have quietly read this thread for months and have come to one conclucion:

I should have gone to Squamish every year after the valley got hot. We would always go to Eldo or some other place.

The cracks there are prettier than the valley cracks.

Too true! I can remember springs at Squamish when whoever went to the Valley for the great spring weather returned with tales of sitting in a tent in the rain. While we'd been climbing our asses off.

Not that it was always that way, but Squamish can be pretty nice early in the year.

Edit: No fair on that first picture Mike. If you want to put that one up, it should be accompanied by a side view to show the true angle.

There you go Dave. Flipped it. I just flip em' sometimes for the effect especially if I have a bunch of similar shots...

I stole this from the ice climbing thread. A very cool little bit of video that captures the atmosphere well. I thought its a good fit here as just up the road on any winter day you can find exactly this up at Blackcomb. Piss easy approach on ski's followed by pints of stout down at Blacks.

For some reason this sort of gig just dosn't resonate with local climbers. I've always been a bit mystified by this but I tell you if you liked angels Crest in full conditions you'll dig this stuff. Let me know, i'll go up there with you.

In another thread, Mike said:

Jim busted up his knee pretty good today skiing. Heal up well Jim!

What happened? Are we talking some serious bruising and a day or two with a liimp, or is this about orthopedic surgery?

Whichever, best wishes to Little Jim.

Dru, Scottish conditions eh?? Cool. Looks miserable ;) I need some gear for that stuff. I think I figured out why they are so into in though, there's no big hills to slide down there... :)

Managed to get some climbing in on the last day of 2012 before work which was a nice surprise, here's one of the bears being run through the birth canal in the boulders today. He has been born again. Looking great for the next few days for climbing.
