Yeah, Tami, 1963 or 1964. Guy's name was Sommerville or Sommerfield, or something similar. Not Sanford, or Smaill.

Nice story Glenn! Thanks! When me Ryand and Kieran were on ypls, I looked down and saw Marc Andre soloing up behind us to recon Milk Road. He turned around at the aid move in the traverse over to the base of Milk Run, but it was still pretty impressive!

Watching him solo crime of the century was pretty cool too.

Hey Hamie! Me n' Kieran did this one today. I was happy to see when i got home & looked in my instruction manual that it was one of your routes. My first aid lead too, although you probably didn't have 75 cams like i did :-) Did you name it?

Ooooohhhh, The Terror! I had dreams of cleaning and attempting to climb that thing years ago. They were thwarted by some old-time locals telling me that Peter C had done it many years before and never bothered to even report it.
Great rainy solo-aid route though!

Scrubber i think someone has been working it recently or did it because there's a shiny new fixe anchor under the roof & at the finish. Pretty clean as well.

A new bolt appeared at the end of the roof too, to allow you to climb to the top without your rope pinching under at the corner. Obviously not needed for solo-aid, but pretty crucial if leading free.

Terror, one of my first leads bashing pins. I think Dirty Harry may have told me who was working the free ascent. Seem to remember someone mentioning it over coffe at Sawbucks in town. Dam it sucks when your memory goes!

I'm pretty sure I saw that bolt out at the right end of the roof in the fall while walking by, but I haven't been there since.

That pitch looks rad. I wonder what it'll go at??

Feeling fit and feral, gf and I had a day that didn't include watches or video.

How about Freeway first, then the Grand to Bellygood ? Smirked the grin...

What a fun day, running around the Chief twice with some very steep hiking between taking the forested trail down.

That's a lot of pitches and what was best is each lead egged the other guy on.

Saw 3 or 4 people hanging out on Wrist Twister from the parking lot today. One guy was either a really fast aid climber, or....

Marc-Andre and his friend Luke are working on a free variation of Wrist Twister which joins the upper section of Cerebrus.

This thread needs a bump. One of my climbing partners finally got a decent camera, so here are some shots from a few weeks ago in the Bluffs.

Byron on...? You tell me.

Yours truly, my beautiful woman keeping me off the deck. I never noticed how tight she keeps the rope, ha ha.

I miss the sun. Waiting for the dry in Squish seems almost strenuous sometimes, especially if you don't spend winters gliding around the snow on fibreglass or strapping knives to your feet and hands while hoping they don't cut your rope.
I got hopeful we'd have a nice spring after a great January, but here we are. I've turned to drink, I hope y'all are in better shape.

Sweet pics mark, first one appears to be the finger crack at clean starts.

Second one, I'm not sure,
