Jim ? That's Georgia Strait, not Strait of JdF. Passage Island below and Cowen Pt on Bowen Island on the right of that. Or I'm a crack baby :-)

Melting here in Kits :-)

Got to show some Vermont friends around Squish Friday and Saturday. They had a ton of fun after sloshing around in the previous six days of rain and goo. It was amazing how the sun and light breeze dried out the crags.

Enjoy the holiday tomorrow!

All the cool people went gay ages ago, so all the straights who are facing the straitened circumstance of being confused by their straightness are irrelevant to the modern world. And that's the strai(gh)t dope!

INTERLUDE

For Americans.

We were all trained by octogenarian Teacher Bats who should have been retired long ago but they insisted on whacking us with sticks in order to get it, as far as the subtleties of English grammar are concerned.

That's why every LOL, OMG and whatever else comes up, gets a "hard cheese" on you, treatment.

Now please resume your jolly obfuscation. It's entertaining but won't go unnoticed...

Hey BM

It's good to see you are out and about on the rocks again.

But.......I thought that you said, back in the fall, before your snowboarding accident, that you were going to wear a helmet for rockclimbing. Am I wrong about this? Again?

Most people here in the West Koots wear a helmet, or 'helmut' as some STers prefer, but then we live in the sticks!

I think Mike the big sweaty bastard would have gone blind from helmut sweat if he had one on.

Was a fun day indeed. Got in a Grand Wall boulder sesh, followed by a pity call up to the poor suckas up on Humpty Dumb Tee. I saw very little movement on the portaledge, like roasting carcasses. Met up later with Kyle and Nathan for a nighmare rock joint venture with Perry and Nadine.

Good sweaty times.

Looking solid Mike.

Groan... Lol nice one Harry.

Hamie! You are absolutely correct of course. Somehow my twisted logic allowed me to think i didn't have to wear it on top rope... Which is of course not correct, as there are still plenty of risks which can be mitigated by wearing it.. As well as setting a good example for others.


We saw Beer can Al yesterday, working on his new project next to Rambles.


We also stopped by the Casino to check out Nate and Kyle's progress on the Sherrifs Badge.

Nate and Kyle chiling at the base of The Daily Planet.


I was way too tired this morning to get up so we decided to go swimming instead.

It was roasting here today!!

I saw king can Al yesterday & was quite concerned as he was drinking a can of coke instead of the usual Molson Canadian. Hopefully everything is ok...


Are u sure that's the base of the daily planet & not a different planet? Looks like they landed on the super moon in that pic? What happened after they chilled at the base??

Well, Kyle led the 12a corner with 4 takes and one whip. I'm pretty impressed he even ventured up it!

Nice pic Dru! Looks fun up there!
