Just fine Tami.

Best plan is to day trip the public beach. Perfect fun and not so far from the big smoke in a day.

Last year I had DJ Absent and his long suffering wife Carol up for a paddle and swim in a day with food and beers. REALLY FUN !

Sandra and i were in Squamish today for my outpatient physio. After a bite to eat we decided to go check out second ave, Heavy's new effort.

It's another beautiful day.

Windy? Ya.. Lol



We started out on Davey jones's locker, and trained up our new grom buddy Thomas on placing gear. Then when we finished, Pixee Corner was conveniently free so Thomas decided he wanted to try and lead it.

Thomas getting some.


At the roof he got a bit Sketchy and decided to bail. Still pretty good for his first day leading trad!

Sandra stepped up to the plate, and knocked it outta the park!


Nice work babe!

Heather showed up and started talking about leading Joe's crack, so we tossed the rope at the base and said, "Hit it up!"

Heather on Joe's









She took a few whips at the bottom but managed to send it!

Pretty mellow day, but sweet. They wouldn't let me top rope joe's because they were worried i'd pull something... Next time.

Hooray, Squamish Stories and Photos!


I apparently have the irresistible opportunity to post photos which will only appear once the dear old odd staff helping educate subscribers at Photobucket put me back under my bandwidth limit.


Here is a young woman who passed us twice today as the lower half of a simul team.
