Tami, I am not the owner. It belongs to someone in Rossland, but hopefully not for much longer.

That's one impressive crag.

Damn, Brownie;

The replacement to the deleted is f*#king awesome. THANK YOU !

Don't be coy now, the show misintendeded is currently missing and well worth reposting.

You're showing a lot of visual media talent. Don't hold your self up on what should be appropriate for a site like this. We all like climbing but if climbing were the only thing that matters, it would be justifiably boring.

Take an example from what Peter Haan posts. Artistic expression can be anything delivered by any medium.

Keep up the good work !

My memory of Larry was at some of Dean Hart's parties at Ontario/25th. Between the giants of Larry,Dean,Randy,Ed and Andrew Spat I felt like I was 5'3" You would of fit in well Mike.

Lol.. Sounds like fun. ;)

Nice work on the video Kieran! Thanks! Jim is right, your presentation is improving steadily!

Fred Herzog is a great eye and the times we live in now will never come again. Every moment that causes a reaction or emotion is something worth capturing by photo.

Here's 3 of my favorites from Herzog in Vancouver:

A friend of mine, perhaps hoping to retire early, is reluctantly offering this rare and valuable piece of Canadiana for sale. Something to own and treasure for a while, and then sell later to feather your own retirement nest.

I'll offer a hundred bucks, fifty to your buddy and fifty to The Big Mike Fund" . Let the bidding begin with the same challenge!

Andres will you sign it and increase the value?

Jim.

Great post of the White Lunch! Is anyone else old enough to rember that place and the, super modern sandwich vending machines. Little glass revolving boxes with you choice of classic meals.

My favorite memory, sliced turkey, stuffing and gravy on white wonder bread with gravy. Umm Umm Umm, it didn't get much better for a five year old.

That's an amazing offer. Sadly Anders does not live here anymore, and he did not leave a forwarding address.

I am sure that MH would be very happy to sign it. You can have it for $50- if you are serious. $25- to the seller, and $25- to Big Mike. $100- is way too generous.

I'm sure the Mighty Hiker will make a reappearence for a good cause. Big Larry's copy just ads value to the price.

And speaking of Big Larrys does anyone have any Larry Kemp signed memorabilia from Index to throw into the pot.

So what is the best / most up to date guide book for Squamish?

Funny you should ask Labrat. The situation in Squamish is shockingly similar to Yosemite in that the only guidebook that is actually still in print is Squamish Select.

http://www.quickdrawpublications.com/Squamish%20Select.html

It is an excelent book, and covers a lot of the climbing in Squamish, but as it is a select, it doesn't have all the routes.

The most recent full guidebook "A climber's guide to squamish" by kevin mclane has been out of print for awhile now but you may be able to find a copy on ebay. Rumor has it, he is working on a new one, but who knows when that will actually make it to print.

Care to comment Kevin? I've seen you post here before. Not on this thread tho..

For new stuff, www.squamishclimbing.com is an excellent resource.

Good luck and let us know if you come up this way labrat!

Bump for Kieran

another bump for the photographic artistry of Brownie / Herzog.


About staples - I just saw something about a UIAA proclamation about the proliferation of bolted cracks in europe and a call for restraint. Whether you agree or not I think its pretty important that bolts should only be placed with the potential that they can also be removed (which apparently they recommend in the UIAA statement). This allows not only for inevitable maintenance replacement but also restoration to a natural state if deemed desirable at some later date.

Glue ins seem far too permanent a fixture to me. I'm sure such may be desirable in some specific situations (rock / environment variability) but most of the time i don't see the sense of it in squamish granite.

Felt like 5'3" ? THAT'S TALL DUDE !!! I 've never cracked 5'2" and always knew what the undersides of those guys chins looked like.

By the way, Ed Spat's climbing shoes fit overtop of mine. Double boots!!!!
