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 ;)

I was nervous watching Robert way above the bolt on this climb, Monday. It was onsight, too, in every sense except that he had done it once before, but he didn't seem to realize that he should layback and he went left side in, manly style. Up to where he is in the photo, that is.

There has always been a bolt there. Unless you mean that boulder problem, not Skullduggery. For the boulder problem, it got its bolts just a few years ago, and lost them a year or two later.


That is one hard hairy highball. And excellent photos of it.

Beauty weather we're havin' eh!

Sunday was rad, psyked to see Big Mike out there again and to see Sandra crush kangaroo corner; her first 5.11!


The other night Aislinn and I set out a summit push after work. We had our sights seton the south peak of the Stewamus Chief and it was prearranged Aislinn was to be the rope gun to Fred Becky's ultra-timeless Squamish Buttress.

After she navigated us to the top of the apron via rambles-bpeel with 30m between us, she was feelin warmed up. When we arrived at the toe of the buttress she figured she'd keep leading and did 2 short pitches got us to the goods.

Upon casting her eyes upon the money pitch for the first time she decided she wanted to step to her first five ten fissure, ONSIGHT!

Up she went, styling the crack transfer, protecting her self from hitting the deck but spacing out her pro as she got higher, and she was looking super solid . When she got to the fingery bit she doubled up and went for it.

Quite a ways above her gear and well into the crux the rains starts as she try's to plug in a blue alien, I thought she said clipping but she said whipping and down she came with a ln extra armload of slack to boot.

Frustrated by my mediocre belay she insisted on coming down and getting me to finish the last 10 feet to the belay. After I finished the pitch she followed it with ease then she took over the lead right to the summit.

Another fine evening jaunt...

The RyanD photo of Squamish, looking dry and about as evenly lit as you can ask for, and Goat Ridge behind it still under snow, is good!



Here is Victor Ting taking his own approach to the flake finish on Right Wing.
