A routes waiting for you at Skaha Mike, I will be up in Princeton but will come down for the day if you want to take a few burns on it. After all it's sport climbing and working routes is part of the game.

It wouldn't be the first mid monsoon assault on the badge. I remember well the Armenian / Castlegar / Burnaby variation..... unfortunately they took a left when they should have gone right which led to much puzzlement about the lack of A3 in the continuous line of perfect finger and hand size cracks which if it wasn't for the inclement conditions, iron rack and haul bags could have provided some delectable free climbing.

It didn't matter in the end as even the shelter of the big roof can't keep the rain away for long and hypothermia comes quick when sitting for hours in slings and the first thing to go along with mental function is hand function, which really sucks when its time to bail.... and bail you must as topping out really isn't going to happen!

Fortunately there is a plethora of alternate shoulder season activities. Travel is best but more locally one can of course go snag a few humpbacks, explore the Squamish library, visit the big smoke, do the culture crawl of all those fine but neglected establishments throughout town..... Mountain Burger house, Locust garden, Cliffside, Chieftan, Harolds Auto Wrecking.... The more spiritual can turn to the many perveyors of salvation throughout town - or maybe they will even come to you! Or you may find it comuning with nature, werner or....

Good ideas Bruce, think I'll just stay in bed & talk sh#t on supertopo until I go to work. Speaking of marine life, a few tuna swam past me on the smoke bluff loop yesterday.



Locust garden?! Are u nuts?!?!


Fortune kitten is a much more quality Asian culinary venue.

Just gobble them down and drink your own pee. Any good Siberian Shaman worth his salt will tell you that. You think Caribou grow on trees?

you can only eat a small amount, like a 1/4 cap of the amanita, the other ones you can eat as many as you can stomach

It's the ibotenic acid in Amanita muscaria that is the poison and it varies wildly from mushroom to mushroom so it's always a risk fooling around with those ones. Nicer to look at in my opinion. They love birch tree drip lines.

I ate a whole 5" cap once. Whoa. I was camping in Tuolumne and found a bunch of them. After about an hour I started into delirium and just decided to crash. I closed my eyes and after a few breaths I stared to leave my body. I can remember lifting up over Lembert dome and I started to head south and can remember flying over Half Dome. I don't remember anything after that and awoke to the sound of my own breath, thinking it was a bear breathing over me and being to scared to open my eyes. I never wanted to eat any more after that.

Ya wanna hear my sillycybin stories?

I always wondered about those AM,s, I never once mustered the courage to find out and I could never quite get a straight answer about the risk. The past few posts are about the best I ever herd about it, which sounds pretty heads up to stay the fuk away if your smart. Psylies are another story.... Speaking of which, for sure lets hear it Wayno!

Btw, dry and gorgeous here in skaha

Further btw..... I couldn't,t help noticing that something, squirrels maybe have been gnawing on them. No sign of the squirrels..... Maybe that's where flying squirrels come from.
