I get the pressure washer but how do they get the water up there?
Didn't JH tote rain barrels to the top of the crag or something?

Road access seems pretty much vital, other than long lining with a helicopter, which I'm surprised Dean never thought of in Skaha.

Dean never used a pressure washer but he did utilize a helicopter to fly up to the Morning Glory wall once. There were a bunch of us up there already and it was like some rock star celebrity was arriving as the helicopter landed. The other climbers were perplexed as to what was going on and who this person was.
He had a bum knee at the time and nothing was going to stop him from finishing "Hotel India" at the Euphorium.

Go well with vodka, which is pretty safe around fire!

You really should come climbing in Squamish, Jefe.

You will have a great time for many reasons.

Jefe! Lol! So i spoke with Grug about this at Facelift. He said that Perry Beckham had pointed it out and told him of it's legendary first ascent with 5 and 6+ inch sections of pipe used for aid.

Greg said he didn't think there was any way he could fall out of something he could get so much of his body into, and the scariest part was passing the old fixed pipes!! (which incidentally might be the first recorded use of tube chocks.)

Perry supposedly suggested the name Pipeloads since renaming aid climbs when freed was somewhat in fashion at the time, but it never stuck.

The tale of the Pipeline is steeped in awesomeness and the climb these days is nothing less. It still repels many suitors who are not ready to shove themselves in the maw. I don't have any pictures, but i might know a few guys who might be interested in a rematch with some more training so i'll keep ya posted. If you search ye shall find

Jeremy- Thanks! You have my draw? Which one? I'll shoot ya a pm.

Centre street is the crack to the right, you can see it jog right up high again to the ledge where it gets thin. Baby Lizard keeps going left.

The call of SuperValue 10c was too loud to resist as we passed


Kyle floated it.. it's not easy.. lol


I flailed on it.. the undercling moves were so close to my feet and gravity did it's evil deed.




What a beauty pitch!
