Whattup "quelly"! Post up some pics!!


Gregg posts as fishfinder.


Y'all and ur icicles are nuts, although I like lookin at the photos. Temps are perfect at the pet. No crampons are required, although they would probably help.

Quelly- What's up!!


Nice story Brownie! Sounds intense! Glad to hear you got to shred some gnar on your trip.

Nice work Dru! Getting after it early!!


Sandra and i are currently passing through Lytton, after a beautiful Skaha thanksgiving visit.

Here's a couple pics, by the fabulous Phil Tifo from our visit.

We also got a chance to hang with Rolf today, which was awesome!

I'll probably get to that, tomorrow.. Hopefully.., lol

Edit- can we drytool at pet?? Lol or would we be summarily shot for such nonsense?....

Drytooling at Pet kinda misses the point. Too many natural holds. You need some crag like the Neurotic Climbing Wall hole ladder or Forgotten Wall where you can go chip-to-chip

Yes Mike, summarily shot. Some would argue that any dry tooling anywhere kinda misses the point but there's probably another thread around here to talk about that kind of stuff :-)


Skaha looks nice.

Forgotten Wall where you can go chip to chip

Hahahaha... Totally! I'm just kidding of course! Skaha was beautiful. A little cold in the shade, but puffy's were made for a reason. Friction was excellent.

I've heard rumours that Dry tooling at Squish = Cacodemon Boulder the drilled route.

Or else wait for the smears at the Bluffs and the Chief to form. I prefer the warmer climates but are there any good tales about climbing the numerous thin ice smears around the Chief?

Good question. Anyone ever touch those gnarly smears on opal wall? I know Diedre has at least one successful ascent.

BK has mentioned that Angels Crest is a prime candidate for a mixed ascent mid winter, as my experiences proved last fall. That tale has been retold in the new Alpinist 44, Full Value section, and you'll find it on reputable magazine shelves now.

Here's a sneak peak..

Good going, Mike. Really like the Andreas illustration that could be any climbing era and is pitch-perfect The Acrophobes and reminds of watching Sergeant Preston of the Yukon as a kid.

Hey my granite loving brothers from the north...

Good job on the Alpinist story there Mike.
I read it on my patio this morning wearing flip flops. ;-)

Nicely done Mike! My two years of free subscriptions ran out with 43 so I'm gonna have to bike to the store and buy it like a working class stiff.

Rolf: my introduction to ice climbing was on those thin smears you mention. went to climb Shannon Falls in 96 but there were already around 6 parties on it when we got there. We bouldered around on some thin stuff at what is now AMO Wall and then went and laid siege to a 25 m high slab of verglas at Furry Creek

Stubais were too short to make good clubs though
