Nice pic Kieran!

We got out this afternoon for a bit..



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.

I still quite firmly believe Health Hazard is fully 13a.




in January anyhow. Which would make it my first 13a (red point not OS I feel obliged to reveal although technically, due to the passage of time and grey matter it was really a Alzheimer Flash) So I've already ruthlessly slaughtered my first new years resolution. Next up, A one day romp up Slesse's NE Butt in winter. Should be a piece of piss after health Hazard. Unless its cloudy then forget it, I'll move on to my other resolution to renew my relationship with taverns and beer, which I have neglected of late due to a woefully miss directed focus on health and fitness. While you guys were leading the new wave on corn flakes I was making the first cautious moves in that direction and I'm glad to report the future looks promising in this regard. I'm pretty sure I spotted Anders there as well.

I promise a full trip report upon a successful resolution
