Ding ding. Doxycycline, Kyle's first 12a? Red point. The other is not far away.

How are you doing Andy? Been getting out much? The Gunks looked fun!

I just paid a visit to Leavenworth for the first time since about 1990. Its still the same.

we did a cool route up on Prussik peak, which is damn near Sierra white granite. We barely made it off alive with all the thunder cells surrounding us. The fall might be better when things are a little cooler.

The highlight was finally getting a chance to actually climb at Index on the way back. I don't know how many million times we would drive by every Easter or Thanksgiving and the thing was always wetter than squamish. This time it was roasting and we even had to take a mid day river break in order to ensure shade for climbing. anyway it sure lived up to its reputation for best crack climbing anywhere. This would be another good Fall trip.

Well done Bruce! Thanks for putting that here rather than some non-Squamish place I might have missed it.


I've had a few adventures, Mike. Sandbagging myself on Grand Finale was memorable. I often wonder how you are doing. Hope to get a chance to meet up.

Awesome Bruce! Thanks for that. Leavenworth and index are definetly on the list at some point. Index looks rad! I gotta come visit you soon and drop your stuff off.

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.
