How many unclimbed slabs can you think of that come with a campsite with a hot spring at the base?

It was nice to catch sunrise from the summit of Lydia mountain last Saturday. This lovely lady scrambled the SE ridge while I scratched my front points on the E face under a full moon. The peaks of the tantalus are fantastic.

Hi Hamie,
Great trip, no summits. The snows came really early this year, and the peaks were out of shape above 5000 metres. But a highly enjoyable holiday.

Good to hear that it was only the peaks that "were out of shape"!

Hamie sent me this last weekend:


i have a favour to ask. pls post this link to "Mt Nimbus" on the squamish thread. imo it is a terrible example of the "disneyfication" of climbing and the dumbing down of our mountains etc. a playground for the very rich. i would post it myself, but i dont know how. you can say that i asked you to post it, and that i hate it!! should generate some discussion/controversy. anything for a buck.

I am very curious about the responses to the Via Ferrata here. Flame on! I'm not sure what to think about it. One seems O.K. but if there is another, will they start to multiply?

Big Mike, the shoes are nice. I think I could climb several pitches now, without too much grief. Climbing with the Weege was way cool. Smooth and strong.

The dood in the via Ferrata vid made me laugh.
I don't know what to think of it but I'm with Hamie :-)


Another nice(enough) day in Squamish.

BM thanks for posting the link. I expected more reaction from the usual suspects.......

I think that we are done for this year in the Koots.

Hamish the Mt Nimbus thing is an E-ticket ride that CMH takes you on and you spend more money with 'em.

I doubt those silly via ferratta for pay rigs will proliferate but it might be only a short time before those idjits at the new gondola next to the Chief ask for tenure to put one on Habrich or Sky Pilot.

I find them offensive only inasmuch as they put n00bs on mountains they'd otherwise not even know the name of. Some might say it's nice to get people into the mountains but I'd argue they're unlikely to ever go back unless it's on another one of those 0% risk things like that one is.

But that's the way of it today, eh? Give the appearance of doing something risky but never really getting into a situation where you could burst into flames.

So do you think the Squamish gondola would be more acceptable if a randomly selected passenger were set on fire once a week or so?
