Just bugging you about the post of course.

Actually it would only be icy and dirty right now. You should certainly wait until it comes into its prime as wet and dirty ( not as much need for Tricouni nailed boots then)

Well this just totally sucks. As soon as I saw the picture, I was ready to hit the reply button and say "Cream of White Mice."

But since I'm a day late, I guess I don't win any prize.

We're stuck in a total inversion down here. No rain, but the fog hasn't lifted for the last five days, and the temp hasn't gone more than a couple of degrees either side of freezing. Inversions aren't quite as bad here as they are in Vancouver, but it still sucks. So I'm glad to see that Squamish is in the clear and you guys are taking advantage of it.

Boulders tommorow. C'mon down. Unless your thetans are acting up. If so, you are excused.

It was probably the warmest it's been so far this year today. Comfortable sweater weather for a bit. I met up with my rope guns at Bughouse Heights and promptly took down two 10b slabs, followed shortly buy another 10c and some photos. Pretty sweet day I'd say..

First hand investigation of Squamish friction capacity scheduled for today. Gotta look for that mysterious gravity shift evident in Mike's Showcase photos.

It's there Dru! go get it!

If you get bored, drop by the bluffs. :)

Kyle called me up yesterday and asked me to bring my #5 camalot so he could lead Skulduggery. I was happy to oblige..




















He was a little worried until this point...



Hope to see some people out at the Bluffs today!

The South South Gully expedition didn't go. Mysterious illnesses and headaches... It will be rescheduled.

Everybody and their dog and their baby was at the Bluffs today.

Pretty soon one of those crag dogs is gonna go all dingo on a baby and there will be a made-for-TV weeper a few years later.

I enjoyed the sunshine and the good sending temps but I enjoyed even more hearing the huge cannonades of ice falling into the gullies on the Chief and echoing and re-echoing across Valleycliffe.

Still not sure but what the mountains might have been a viable option, conditions sound like they were highly variable depending where and how far above treeline you were.

Good thing Anders and Tricouni didnt't go gully climbing today. It was thunderously loud while we were in the north wall boulders. All sorts of falling death chunk sounds eminating from the chief shaking off it's debris.

Beauty day in there.

The ice was coming down today for sure! Loud rumbles did indeed eminate from the chief's walls and the last one around 5:30 or so was quite significant!!

Sunset was pretty sweet..
