I think it's Itchy Crack. It faces North where the Sun never shines.

Correct about your pic maybe, but not mine. JB should know, though.

I'm about to get on my bike and pedal home. Assuming I don't slip on any ice and break another hip, I should be home in about 45 minutes and will check in then to see if anyone gets the grand prize.

Arrrrgggggg! Get home safely, Ghost, and quick! By eliminating pretty much everything else, is that Mushroom? I haven't been there in a while and don't recall what it looks like.

edit:

Yes, thanks Anders. In the meantime I checked your photos of Mushroom from Squamish in the 70s.

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 !

I'm quite sure it isn't Uncle Bens bur that little cedar tree immediately made me think of it. You know why? Have you guys ever seen Deadline? Its the little 15 minute short film drama of a guy who is a Squamish logger and also a climber who dreams he's up on uncle Bens and goes for the huge whipper. The thing is, at one point he is forced to step out of his aiders, and go for it free climbing. He barely makes it to a little cedar that he latches - and it rips! Away he sails....


I know some of you guys have seen it. Its Paul Berntsens movie. Perry starred in it. That picture of ghosts is like a frame right out of it.

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.

ghost, I hate to tell you this but both the tree and the hammer toss are about as up to date as the Royal Hudson.
