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.


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!!!!

I'm working on the transaction with Hamie, Coming down to Van this weekend. I've got my old email active again. Send me your location.

Off for another day of obsessive compulsive, moss scrubbing to create a few more obscure routes in Skaha.

Attention: Esteemed Friends From the Far North (hey Hosers!)

There is a thead here:

http://www.supertopo.com/climbers-forum/2114171/Comments-Needed-by-4-18-on-the-Future-of-the-Valley-and-C4

requesting that comments be sent from climbers to the Park Service regarding the Merced River Plan. These comments are important to the future of Yosemite National Park.

I know you cherish the Park as much as any of us south of the border and you donít need to be a citizen to comment.

It would be terrible blow to US pride if more Canadians submitted comments than natives.

Sorry for the interruption. Carry on.

You're welcome Labrat!


Yes. We should submit comments. I tried to read the park plan the other day, but got lost in all the links.

I'll try again.

Was my first day out there. Amazing. It's like the base of the Grand as far as density excellent moderates. Got on Clean Crack (no photos), must be the most beautiful crack I've climbed in Squish.

christ -a guy puts his head down for a few weeks to get some work done and all kinds of good sh#t gets posted.
Jimmy and rolf -THE WHITE LUNCH -such a classic -a doubly unintended double entendre!
LARRY O bump - a fine man and one we all miss
I never got to buy that piton as someone out bid me -so count me in for a 15.00 raise on rolf -but ONLY if deano signs his name below larry and it goes to his family

Too late G, that book sold and gone.

Still not too late to bid on a first ascent in Skaha, primed and bolted.

One First Ascent of a new route in Skaha. Scrubbed, bolted and ready to go. I had removed the first three hangers and intended to send it when the weather improved.

Eight bolts long; Climb a short face to a discontinuous hand crack, through jugs over a roof, face climbing to a flaring off hands finish. Probably around 5.11A.

Locals think it's harder because they can't jam at the crux.

Current bid $250.00

Sunday afternoon ended up being a beautiful day.

Sandra and I showed up to the crag to find Ryan d bouldering up a storm, while still maintaining the fun aspect.




Relic was doing his physio excersises while Ryan shoe'd up



Ryan trying the lower crux



Ryand getting all highball on an unknown previously bolted/chopped problem




Stepping up to the upper crux.



He sent thank god!


Anders showed up and hung out with us.



He passed on Larry O's guide which was ever so kindly purchased for me by Rolf

Yeah! I get that beautiful afternoon feeling from those photos.

I tried leading that boulder problem when it was bolted, and a guy coming past told me he had put it up. He seemed to have a lot of energy, so maybe that explains it. I don't remember if his mini-route was too hard or not safe/too hard to clip. I didn't finish. You gotta be careful when the ground is that close. And from where Ryan got to, it isn't even that close, but I guess the pad and spotter count for something.

Mh2- i dunno, i was pretty nervous when he was sussing those moves. It was pretty much onsight too although he fell off the bottom crux once. I know a fall from that height wouldn't have been pretty..

Harry, no he enjoyed his pops, i think yhat was just his workout face ;)
