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:

a look at the upper wall with climbers for scale:

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.

Better than any other arrangement of those I can see. Have a warm good time down there.

The Stronghold Rules. It's like J-Tree, but for grown-ups.

Nothing particularly great about this video other than its a few shots of a really fun outing back in the day on a classic Squamish climb.

Maybe not particularly great, but very good. What year was it taken?

the next mischief monkey comes along

I'd go with retarded rodent. :-)


Harry that video was hilariously 1990s. Who are the folks in it? I recognize them but can 't put names to faces. The early '90's are a total blur to me. I had babies in '90 & '91. I remember nothing until 1994 and then for the next two years it's only little hunks & chunks . Babies are SUCH hard work.

Tami the people in that video are myself leading the traversing crack, my ex wife Trish McCarthy from my practise marriage and John McCallum from NZ who lived here in Vancouver from 89 until 92. Met him sharing a cave bivi in the middle of the fiordland RAINforest. Later I found out he was born in the same hospital as myself, in Hamilton(the Hammer),Ontario that same year.

Harry, thanks! I hope Nick sees that, should be just what he needed. After our winter epic he said "I never want to climb that again!", looks so much different not frosted over

Anders, thanks. Funny, I specifically didn't go for this one becuase I wanted someone else to have it, but I end up with it anyways... ;)

Did anyone climb at Squamish today? How was it? Sounds like it'll be a touch cooler and breezier on Sunday.
