I was nervous watching Robert way above the bolt on this climb, Monday.

What do you need to protect that Andy, that is if you dont have balls as big as the Roberto Unleashed?

WTF? I found this thread on page six or something. Late hibernation or what? Hockey? You hosers can't let my favorite thread just fade that way.

Speaking of hosers, can one of you put ole Wayno up for a night, this Monday? Preferably in Van. near GF Strong? I'm coming up to visit Big Mike.
Or could someone recommend a hotel near GF Strong? Send me a PM.

If you walk in strapped to a spine board GF Strong will put you up. Especially if you bring beer.


Thats just how our socialized health care works up here.

Went up to the top of Penny Lane tonight after a fabulous BBQ provided by the Cormier's.

It's pretty nice to have the smoke bluffs in your backyard!

Does anyone know the status of the cleaning job under way in the Milenium Falcon / Gauntlet area?

Someone has been putting some serious effort in there and its looking promising, but the season is now well under way. There is currently a "do not enter under pain of death" sign at the base.

Four of us went to Slhany on Sunday. The plan was to do Birds of the Sun as two parties of two. However my shoes were being resoled so I borrowed my wife's shoes for the day. She has big feet and wears a size bigger than me. I should have gone the MH2 route with wooly socks in the rockshoes. As it was I felt like my feet were flopping around in the borrowed shoes so I bailed after Eagles Domain.

Hiked up to the top in time to catch the boys finishing up Birds of Prey.
Apparently Birds of the Sun was
1) dirty
2) in the sun while the finish of BoP was shady

Here are some pics

After this we helped Graham kidnap a small boulder for his rock garden, ate some ice cream and slurpees, and then went to Murrin where it was shady enough to get one more route in. It was also a gong show of bad belay techniques so we washed our feet in the lake and got the hell out of Dodge.

Also, the Canucks lost again. Some things never change. Looks like Sharks in 4.

The Tragedy of the Commonwealth?




Not really. Everyone played nice. Our winter gym time has paid off and we are able to be around other people.

A lot more people know where The Reacharound is, too, now.

Hey Drew
Some nice shots. However I am curious about the trees in your "TOTALLY NO TILTED AT ALL" photo. Why are they growing at an angle of 50 degrees? Is that the result of a strong wind? or perhaps they are growing on a peculiar sidehill? or just because?
:) :) H.

Colin Mooreh..d is cleaning Milenium Falcon and rescrubbing my Sticky Fingers as the start, I belive a few great multipitch routes will begin from there.
