I don't remember my climbing origins. Fortunately, my mother took notes:

"His first steps were at 10 1/2 mo. At that age he could climb into chairs and the sofa and let himself down as well.

By '51 he was climbing up into the little shrubby tree by the back door. He neatly turns around and lets himself down from high places.

For his second birthday we took him to the San Antonio Zoo which delighted him..."


That zoo is where the idea of climbing rocks and the amazing athletes doing it so impressed my little mind.

BK that clip almost makes sense. Scarey.

Contrary to what some of you may have heard:
.....There is no good skiing/powder in the Koots.
.....There is no good rockclimbing.
.....There is no good mountaineering or alpine rock.
.....There are no 'klassy womens', or 'burn your eyeballs babes'.

It is better to stay at the coast, or head directly to the Rockies. The Kootenay Chamber of Commerce and the Tourist Bureau lies like a bouldering mat.

Where'd I find it? well like where you find everything these days - Google. It took about 3.5 seconds. I just searched "Pharmaceuticals procurement Kootenays B C" and voila! Top of the list was this guy "Hamie". No real contact number or address but some blog said to just go to most any bar and ask around. Sounds like he has some sort of still too.

Anyway I'm sure Luke will bring us back the full beta.

Pardon the minor interruption, but... January 10, 2013 is the absolute last day for submitting comments regarding the proposed amendments to the Garibaldi Park Master Plan. Most important is to provide your opinion regarding whether or not to continue to allow heli-skiing in the Spearhead Range near Whistler.

Get on it, people.

everyone and their dog is out today, well at least one guy and his dog.. i know because the poor little pooch just took a bail off the top of funOrama. I ran over and checked out the pup as his owner made his way down the fixed lines and apart from some scratches on his paws he seemed to be alright. yikes!

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?
