Hamish did you see the trip report by those two 16 year old Hamish start-ups down in the valley. Blows my mind.
Great outing with your son,good to see there's more than one kind of apron in your life now!

Cool hamish!! Good to see you getting the rug rats out!!

Anyone else seen that black helicopter from sky helicopter's landing on the chief and buzzing climbers?? Let's start taking pictures of these guys and post them up on facebook and send them to the rcmp. These guys need to respect park boundaries!!

After five weeks of hospital hell, I finally made it out to the bluffs with Kyle and Nina yesterday. I'm still not putting too many miles on, but i can walk pretty good on the crutches so i hobbled over to neat and clean with my cushion, and ate my lunch as the solo fest emsued..

I have no idea what this upper crack Kyle is on is...



Just another beautiful spring day at the bluffs.



Then the rest of the crew showed up



Kyle says "i think i can solo both cracks!"



Then some moss bouldering on a new?? route??



Monkey see, Monkey do...



And Ryan gave it a whirl.



Then James Bond showed up with his kid Mika, right about the time Nina got bored.



Apparently this is the new thing... Speed bouldering competitions on clean starts..



Ryan d on a little traversing rig..




Hey Kieran, you gonna boulder that thing??



Maybe..


Nope...



Monkey see, Monkey do again..


Kyle decided to play a little House Music








Then Ryan rigged up the cripple belay

Great to see you getting fresh air out with the gang and they were all willing to risk their ankles so you could have that cushy three pad sleep country combination for your belay. Sure looked comfortable. Nothing stops you from getting out!
Just wondering about that small pad that your head is on,is that for expert boulderers with really good aim?

I rebolted your old route about ten or twelve years ago Tami. It's still pretty rare to see anyone on it, but I like the perversity of slab. There's actually a new anchor that's sprung up at the base of it to service the low-fifth-class cracks below that lead up to the slab. Kinda weird, but it gets traffic. Neat and Cool is very heavily used by those of us with little rug-munchers.

I was thinking of adding another bolt to that anchor just to the left of it so the rope would run better, instead of over that edge. I guess i should contact the smoke bluff committee?

I think we're talking about different anchors Mike. The route Ali Bhutto is the leftmost one on the upper slab. You climb the easy corner cracks on the lefthand low angle slab to get to it. I think you might be referring to the anchor on top of the three short cracks called Clean Starts.

If that anchor puts the rope over a nasty edge, you don't need anyone's permission to correct the problem.
