After a beauty lunch at Kozo Cafe, and a brief heckle of T-Mac laying some brick down, I met up with Kyle to go do some rock scampering. We picked up Brownie to come join us but we think he was still a little too disheveled from yesterday's epic solo journey. So Kyle out of nowhere suggested we do Frail Scales. I hell yah'd that one.

It was a little chilly, noisy, and dirty at the bottom of it. The fun climbing up bomber layback flakes made you forget that you were right beside the highway.

Ya he did. It was kinda a featherbag 10d. The flakes are cruiser. Theres a sorta tricky mantle near the top though. I hung there cuz I was being a weenie crying about frozen fingers.

Good choice with Frail Scales. Drive past it every trip to Squamish, never saw anyone on it, but often thought of, and heard about, especially from Robert N who was up under that mantle when the rain came. I think he had to wait there while someone walked up to lower a rope.

Any sightings of Mr. Annapurna south face solo? Heard he was visiting.
Saw Ueli at Pet Wall around the end of August. He was climbing Blackwater at a fairly normal speed, belayed by a european woman (wife? GF?). It was weirdly unexceptional. A bunch of us, included Ueli, ended up sheltering from a rain shower under the same tree, but were all too coy/ polite for an "OMG! You're Ueli Steck!" let alone any sherpa punch-up jokes ...

Frail Scales is one of the best routes in Squamish. I've run out of fingers and toes to count how many times I've climbed that thing.

Imagine how peaceful the little valley that Jalap Bluff and Nightmare Rock reside in, would be without the highway running through ?

Paradise lost...

ps. Power Line, on the same crag is burly and fun !

Thank you, thesiger. One of the many cool things about climbing is that you can be outstanding and famous and people will still treat you with the respect due to a normal person.

Or dump on you and call you out on the internet as the scum of the univere.

Strange days.

Yes. I wasn't thinking of internet, just person to person. Says the guy who posts.

Hey there, say Big Mike, I went out and bought some new shoes yesterday and picked up the Alpinist #44. Really nice writing. Your voice really comes through on the pages. Proud stuff.

I actually bought two pairs of relatively comfortable shoes. Hopefully tomorrow I will get to try them out with Norwegian down at Lover's Leap. Woot!
