Can't you at least put some of those copper or nickle strips used to keep moss off house roofs along the top of those dripping mossfests up there?

Those strips make a mess where one isn't needed. Frequent climbing will keep popular routes clean. Those that grow over - should grow over. Killing the hell outta the tiny plants is a bad idea.

It was a frustrating evening trying to figure out why Invertigo sounded familiar but was not in any recent guide. Finally this morning I found the '92 guide. All 3 routes at left lower Malemute that go up to a roof and out right should be good. We did at least one of them but not Invertigo.

I don't think those strips do any good, although there's immaculately clean whiteness below some of the hydro towers that seems to have to do with metal ions.

JH got much the same effect with his power washer, and probably left the underlying crystals sharp or sharper than a wire brush would have

that said I wondered in the past about a bag of powdered zinc sulfate moss killer and what it would do if left on top of a cliff over the winter...

you gotta have the sixth sense of Ray charles to figure out the crystals on that finishing slab!

Like I could ever get to the finishing slab. That move half-way up where you lever your entire bodyweight off a spike digging into your calf muscle was like God telling me it was time to take up golf.

Time to start thinking about summer in the alpine...
This little crag is outside Pemberton, just south of the Miller? Creek hydro project. Probably a two hour approach from the road to the intake. Talk to Innergex to get access.

As far as I know, totally untouched... looks like some nice buttress lines. Let me know if you check it out.

BTW, Meares island has just had a little sprucing up. Nothing as spectacular as the old growth cull of the old days but it should be enough to attract some more action on the handful of mega classics there. Getting up is easy now (no dirty 5.8 solo with a pack on anymore) and its now a nicely cultured garden up there.


Thanks

It's an old sport climbing trick Todd. The less teeth you have, the less you weigh, the more you send. Works best with a grigri.
