Thanks for the re-post. Has the feel of M. John Harrison's Climberz.

I only fell 10 feet in a swami.

On the topic of icey slopes, I recently did my annual ice climb. That is, if you can accept that top-roping some 3/4 ice really qualifies as ice climbing. As usual I ignored all previous experiences and carefully made resolutions, and ventured out to Paradice [sic] with my friend Kyle R. My main function was to act as Kyle's belayer, while he did laps--he is still young enough to actually enjoy this stuff. One lap was more than enough for me. The ice was getting punky, and the local ice season is likely over already.

Hilarious stories !!! That climb on the Malemute called "old style" was named c'os Peter climbed it with sox over his EBs. Like you Bruce, we remembered Tom Patey and the sox-over-boots trick.

Kind of trashed the sox.

Ha.

Got your hike on again eh Bruce?

I went down to the bluffs to meet Kyle and Relic and shoot a few frames with my new toy.

14mm on full frame is pretty darn wide!



Kyle hit up a few routes and Relic found out his shoulder was still a bit sore, so ended up just belaying. After a while i got Kyle to fix me a rope and i got some shots of him on Yorkshire gripper.

I got a few more too but i'm gonna wait till i get home and edit them a bit. I downloaded these two from my camera to my phone.. Technology. Pretty cool sometimes..

You're welcome Tami. Love to you and phil too!

Too anyone that feels left out because they didn't get a card yet, sorry! There is just so many we want to do, and being that they are hand made and scripted, they take awhile. We hope to have them all out soon!

Gorgeous day in town here. Too bad the skiin' isn't better on the local hills. My brother & his wife said they had nice pow on Flute.

Who's the other chap in the shot with Luke? Shirtsleeves in the Bluffs in January!? Sweet !
