Was it the grand wall one with Jim Sinclair you showed us at the historical presentation? Can't remember the name...

Not "The Vertical Desert", although apart from CBC news clips of the Grand Wall ascent in 1961, it was probably the first professional movie made of climbing at Squamish, and shown on TV.

As it was -9 in Squamish at 9 AM today, and there are some urgent things to do here, I decided to pass on climbing today. Maybe later in the week, if/when an inversion takes charge.

Hey Bruce, I have a hardware/sofware sysrem on my computer for converting. I'd be happy to convert any footage you have but if it's high8 I would need the camcorder also. I never used a stick and you can tell most of the time. I never considered myself a cinematographer just a climber who videoed some of his climbs. Now with so much time passed I wish I had put more emphasis on close-up people shots and interviews as that's what people like to see after all these years.

Thanks for the offer Harry. I have a couple of Berntsen VHS tapes that need preserving ASAP. I'll contact Paul and see if he has something better quality first.

We went for a wander up to Penny Lane and passed some a team on quarry man



Saw some cool hoar crystals



It was pretty busy, so we left and ended up at Neat and Cool again.

Yes ditto, probably took some time to set up.


Bruce, the closer to the original the better for digitizing also I know the Bear has lots of high8 footage of the likes of Hamish,I'd love to get a hold of that and digitize it for archival reasons.

Anders, if you could help my memory a bit I will look for that footage of yourself, do you remember where it was taken as I don't recall off the top of my head.

Cloud layer huh Bruce? Is that what you say to keep the tourons away? It was so nice in Squamish today. The Grand Wall boulders was the place to be. Sending temps.

Yup.. Pretty cloudy. I called you Bruce but to no avail.. ;)

We warmed up on Mousetrap, Jermey's new 5.7 number left of corner crack. Kyle wanted the lead so I obliged. I led it this summer and it was his first time on it.

Kyle led the Flake too but I was belaying so no pic. After I took down the climb I got Kyle to send up my jacket so I could take a few pics and he decided he wanted to solo cornflakes.

Bearbreeder was there too and he was leading flying circus.

Wait, Cornflakes is 5.7 now?

That route has been 3rd class since the 70s.

Mclane has it at 5.6, it's 5.7 in Bourdon's new book. Definetly an excellent 3rd class prospect.

What he said. We used to down solo it as a way off the top of that crag. Pretty cool sideways tunneling at one point.

ya Cornhole Flakes is 5.7 now ever since the crux hold broke. Not the first crux, the fourth one where you grab that big flake thing. It shifted a little making it desperate and off-balance. I think the hand crack shrunk too or maybe I'm just a fatty.
