^^What GW said ^^^^ but, for my part, what a great shot. I can smell the trees and the warmth of the stone.

Think of me, eh? I"ll spend this glorious afternoon..........backstage in a theatre. Closing day, yey!!! Nothing to do for Canada Day tomorrow but pick raspberries, paint and drink cider !!! :-)

Ya we would've!


Relic ropegunned me up rambles this morning. It was pretty fun, after we got started. Unfortunately a couple beat us to it and decided that they had to do it in four pitches which took forever... Lol

While i waited i posted some pics at the bottom.

Nice one boys! Good to see some tiny cars below u Mike!

I tried to go bouldering today, even had some aspirations until i saw these guys havin a weenie roast on a portaledge on Humpty Dumpty so I yelled at them for awhile from psyche ledge which was so exhausting from the heat that I just ended up sleeping on my crashpad for a bit until I had to go to work. Looks like early starts or night climbing for the next while.

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.

Relic it was great to hear you had a good outing with the indomitable Big Mike and a'll but we don't need to hear about what went on after.

Looking solid Mike.
