Casual Choss.. Lol

His progeny and sweetheart must be spirited away from danger... but its going to take a little money. Fortunately we only need to provide our banking information ( and PIN) in order to make a small donation to this cause.... or just send me the cash in the mail, which ever is easier.

So thats it. Its another ST fund raiser. Buck up people- its for one of the tribe!!!

Lol. Nice theory Bruce. Thanks for the tales. I quite enjoyed both, but Mel was an awesome writer. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I also enjoyed the snafflehouds tale. Thank you for that Andy.

Cool pics Dave! Thanks!

Isn't this all biblical ? something about crossing a river and living on the other side ?

Good God man, "Styx" was more than a band who provided the opportunity to boff at yer high school dance...

There's a boulder problem in the north walls called Styx. It's kind of scary actually but really good moves ;-)

There's a boulder problem in the north walls called Styx.

Speaking of boulders under the North Walls, there's a real monster right up against the base of the wall about half way between the Angels Crest and Borderline. Thing's gotta be well over 20 meters high.

I spent a lot of time right near it putting up a couple of 1-pitch things about... I don't know, maybe seventeen, eighteen years ago? Bouldering was never my thing, but this chunk of stone was pretty impressive. One of you pad people ought to go up there and check it out.

Nah that rope belongs to a poster here, it's been there for a while.

He's waiting for higher quality psychedelics before going any higher. Hehe "higher".

I usually put a date on my photos. When they show for 6 seconds on the screensaver, then I can locate them by the date if I want.


Some photos I put a note on. Names or the place; a kind of a cheat on dementia, or just backup for memory.

Of course, the note I put on photos usually gives me some clue about WHY I PUT IT THERE. That is the reason for it being there.


The other day I was, as usual, idly watching the screensaver, when I noticed:







I have no idea what that note is doing there.




Here is a better look at the Roman Chimneys. No note needed.








The better look at the Roman Chimneys comes from 7 Oct 2010. That was the time I learned that my Petzl Tikka, while helpful for climbing in the dark or coming down the trail at night, was useless for spotting a rappel station 10 metres to the side. Fortunately, my partner had a better headlamp.

We're here. Saturday night in Squamish. Too late to climb, but the weather looks good for the next couple of days.

Post up where you're going climbing at some point Ghost, or maybe we will just see you at the church on 99 in the morning.


Hey Bruce! I meant to say hi to you in the grocery store last night but got sidetracked trying to convince the stock boy that I saw you put a pack of razor blades in your pocket.

Social media updates have led me to believe that the monkeys are indeed "sending"...

Hope every one enjoys the nice weather.

Need a bunk?
Thanks, but we're okay in that department.

Hey Bruce! I meant to say hi to you in the grocery store last night...

The grocery store is the new meeting place. Always seem to run into someone there. We went shopping when we arrived in town and ran into Kevin McLane. Who said he was working on a new comprehensive guidebook with Andrew Boyd.

Anyway, while I was talking to him, a young guy (young compared to KM and me, anyway) walked up and said "Excuse me, but you're Kevin McLane, aren't you?" Kevin said he was. "I'm Rob Lane, Dave Lane's son..."

Not sure what our plans are for today. I've have to do a couple of hours work, and then I think Mari wants to hit Area 44. That'll probably be around 10:30 or so.

Well have fun up there David, i don't think i'll be able to stop by there. My phone went for a swim yesterday so i'm gonna try & deal with that & some honey-dos then hopefully go climb something in the afternoon.

Where you going Bruce?? How nice & dry was the pet?


edit- lol Dave L should have strapped a grigri to the kids if it was already anchored down!

second edit- I heard a rumour that the OP might be up on wrist twister today so be sure to stop by & cheer him on if you are near the Chief.

Then there's that other story, involving cops, child services and the apron parking lot.

I think that it was a tree in the old backside trail parking lot which is now, of course, near the campsite. IN that case, the child tied to the tree became quite the circus artist....

Wow. Too much good stuff to reply to right now! The monkey's have been sending, but this one's been too tired to post lately. All in good time.

Here's a sneak peak at today's objective.

Tooth, that chopper is a sightseeing chopper out of van who likes to buzz climbers on the chief and sometimes land illegally up there. He buzzed us twice.

Choppers that buzz need to be full mooned. A chopper from Grouse Mtn used to buzz the top of the Lions. Maybe they still do that. Definitely something that needs to be assed :-)
