Windy? Ya.. Lol



We started out on Davey jones's locker, and trained up our new grom buddy Thomas on placing gear. Then when we finished, Pixee Corner was conveniently free so Thomas decided he wanted to try and lead it.

Thomas getting some.


At the roof he got a bit Sketchy and decided to bail. Still pretty good for his first day leading trad!

Sandra stepped up to the plate, and knocked it outta the park!


Nice work babe!

Heather showed up and started talking about leading Joe's crack, so we tossed the rope at the base and said, "Hit it up!"

She took a few whips at the bottom but managed to send it!

Pretty mellow day, but sweet. They wouldn't let me top rope joe's because they were worried i'd pull something... Next time.

Hooray, Squamish Stories and Photos!


I apparently have the irresistible opportunity to post photos which will only appear once the dear old odd staff helping educate subscribers at Photobucket put me back under my bandwidth limit.


Here is a young woman who passed us twice today as the lower half of a simul team.

Doesn't this ledge look like a great spot for a party?

Looks like a sweet party ledge! Is there any ledges like that on the chief?

Yes but they are covered in trees, except for Memorial.

Best party "ledge" isn't a ledge. It's the top of the Bulletheads, overlooking the South-South Gully. Great view, lots of open space, and you avoid the hordes on the top of the south peak.

Parapalegic safety line! Kyle and Nina set that up for me!

We just got off the apron. Me and Kieran rapped Bad Pants Party so i didn't have to do the walk off.

Thanks Hamish, I was wondering the same.

Yes, I'll have copies on hand. Yes, Mike, you have one with yer name on it.

Anders called tonight to make some plans for Saturday.

Would rather coordinate this over PM rather then on this thread.

Suffice to say looking fwd to next weekend!
