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?

Wow! Cool post Dru! Thanks! I've been super busy lately. Trying to maximize my last week of rehab, run a small business, and edit a story for a sweet rag is two full time jobs!

I dug these up for tar's killer thread last week but haven't even had a chance to put a proper post together yet..

I remember happy days climbing at Squeamish with Hughie.

BTW, anyone interested in old Squamish or other Canadian guides should contact me. I am selling off my guidebook collection. I still have over 400. Shoot me an email and I can send you a list (jimmerson@earthlink.net)

I've been sorting a few huge piles of mags that Mooser gave to Wayno for me recently.

This one is definitely a classic...

Good stuff Mike, u got some gold in those mags there.

gf looking way honed there on the couch! Very cool.

Hey does anyone know what Dave Lane does or anything about him BITD? He seemed really prolific there for awhile judging by the # of classic pitches out there with him listed as the FA but you don't hear many stories about his endeavors, was he just a silent menace or what? Sure bagged a lot of classics.

Dave Lane was a co-founder of Arcteryx. Climbed the Nose when he was just 15. Sent a major Line on Bagarathi IV in the Himilayas across from Meru with Scott Flavelle. El Cap FA Hockey Night in Canada, Perry Beckham, Scott Flavelle, Dave Lane 5/80. Many FA's in the Waddington range.

Very gifted climber, born to climb kinda guy, a natural.
