Those gentlemen look to be on the free grand! The second is coming across from the underfling. Very impressive.

Thanks for the pics Adrian! And everyone else too! Eric, Marc, very nice to see you post here.

Yeah but this one might have a transmission line by the base soon.

Bruce can sled in and mix climb those leaning corners in the middle

Adrian, that shot of the base of the Grand is quite something. Nice work.

Right above the campground and not a mystery, but not often seen with people on it:

Woaaaaaah! Andy! ^^^^**

Quality.


That's awesome, don't think I've ever seen anyone up there.


Who's done it?


What's up with the crack on the right?


Lots of good pics here. Really cool.

Who has done it:

Greg Cameron and George Manson in 1979.

a little about George Manson:

http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1618401&msg=1813715#msg1813715



(Utah) Steve Seats and Kevin McLane in 2002, lefthand finish
Matt Maddaloni and John Furneaux in 2004, direct finish

Alan(sp?) the professional trail-builder who worked a few summers on the Grouse Grind

Gord Ross who took the picture of John Furneaux on it that is in McLane 2005

2 guys 10 days ago

That's my list.





The crack on the right is Turkey Shoot, 11b, Fred Beckey and Dave Beckstead in 1966, FFA Kai Hirvonen and Andre Ike in 2004

You'll be okay if you can avoid a Squamish car in Sonoma.

Wild Turkey
I shared the belay with Tom Gibson as Greg Cameron led it on sight in shorts circa 1980
Not my cup of tea at the time so I gave it a miss.
Not often travelled as 10+ flared chimneys don't compel too many.

So, that's Wild Turkey? Jeez, I don't remember even a little about it. I DO remember drinking Wild Turkey after the FA (or was it before?). Thanks for the post up, MH2. I'm gonna save this one.

Even though I can't remember anything about it, my guess is that the guy in the picture is doing it wrong side in.

....wrong side in.


All I can add is that's what I thought and boy was that a big mistake! Face toward Garibaldi not Vancouver if you want success!

Ryan, beautiful shot of Clean Crack

Yes, great picture, Ryan. A different distance and living planet eco-tones instead of just the RR ambience.

That pale patch above Brownie's shoulder:

Thanks guys, the start used to be way easier when that sign was there :-) Alex is the climber.


So what's up with last train to Hicksville? Any one ever climb it besides chief?? It's got a leaver biner as all his 5.12 routes do, but damn it's a pretty cool looking line.
