Speaking of Amazon Slabs, there is this other slab to the right of it which appears as a white-space-on-the guidebook maps.




People have been up there. Or down there?

Andy that slab is a climb left of and iirc accessed from Teddy Bears Picnic.

Sounds right. There are anchors up in the final cleft of the Prow. Climbs in the vicinity would be best accessed by rap in as suggested for Teddy Bears Picnic. That anchor in my photo is probably arranged that way for rapping rather than sport. But no published routes that I know of despite a good-looking face. The upper part of the face may not have a good line?

All the tube topos are gone from Area 44 :'(

Also a huge thank you to the guys that built that place. The whole thing feels like a massive passion project and you can feel the love ooze from the walls. I love it :D

You're right - thought that Unbearable was on that face but it's much closer to the corner.

That said, I remember exploration of that wall even back in the late 90s, surprised nothing has come to fruition yet. The cleaned features look to go all the way up?

There looks to me to be a good line of vertical features for the first 2/3s, then it gets steeper and looks problematic, from a distance, that is.

Looks pretty hard up there. I bet it'll go eventually.

Sorry i missed your visit to Squamish Oplopanax.

It's been gorgeous at the bluffs lately. Here's a couple from friday.

Kyle on the rocks.

It's been a pretty mellow birthday. I was tired from yesterday, so no climbing. Sandra and i are going for Chinese now.

Thanks Ryan!!

It's another beautiful day in Squamish! From what i hear anyways.. Sandra's a bit hung after my birthday party last night, and i was pretty lazy too.

We're on the highway now. Hoping to get a couple pitches in b4 it gets dark.. Lol

Here's another nice pic from Hans Groper the other day. The clouds that day made for some amazing ribbon skies!!

Ya. Fire season could be nasty. I still think we'll see some major precip in march and april. A la 2004..

Today was absolutely gorgeous! Sandra and i met up with Kyle and got a couple laps in. Twas a bit colder than Friday.

Last week Kyle and Nina and i got out and hit up the skulduggery crag.

I got Kyle to hang a rope for me, on the new 11a just to the left of Skulduggery.

Anyone know what this thing is called??


Close up


Then I tried to adjust the exposure to compensate for the white streaks, and ended up overexposing somehow... Doh!!


Then our buddy Ben showed up


To be continued....

One of the best days of xc skiing in years up at the WOP! Perfect kick, fast skis, and rocketship downhills. If I keep this up I may be fit enough to climb soon.

Great to see everybody getting out. One of these days the car will stop in Squish and climbing season will start.

Cheers,

Todd

Kyle wanted to do so I threw the camera on the tripod and played with the smartphone remote feature.. Pretty cool.

Since i was too destroyed from all the climbing I actually knocked the dust off of my camera yesterday & tried taking some photos.

Here's a sequence of Josh on………



(Mike, Brownie, Cormier no guessing!)

















I also saw what appeared to be this woman & her dog rescuing or kidnapping someone from the nearby mental ward. I figured i'd snap a pic in case the authorities needed info later.



















Yes it is full on Juneary out there.
