Hilarious stories !!! That climb on the Malemute called "old style" was named c'os Peter climbed it with sox over his EBs. Like you Bruce, we remembered Tom Patey and the sox-over-boots trick.

Kind of trashed the sox.

Ha.

And here we thought it was just another boring beer climb!

Another spectacular day on the summit of the chief today. Still patches of water ice around - I wound up on my ass at one point and was actually glad for the chains too. Had a great chat with Robin and Splodge up there.

Got your hike on again eh Bruce?

I went down to the bluffs to meet Kyle and Relic and shoot a few frames with my new toy.

14mm on full frame is pretty darn wide!



Kyle hit up a few routes and Relic found out his shoulder was still a bit sore, so ended up just belaying. After a while i got Kyle to fix me a rope and i got some shots of him on Yorkshire gripper.

I got a few more too but i'm gonna wait till i get home and edit them a bit. I downloaded these two from my camera to my phone.. Technology. Pretty cool sometimes..

You're welcome Tami. Love to you and phil too!

Too anyone that feels left out because they didn't get a card yet, sorry! There is just so many we want to do, and being that they are hand made and scripted, they take awhile. We hope to have them all out soon!

Gorgeous day in town here. Too bad the skiin' isn't better on the local hills. My brother & his wife said they had nice pow on Flute.

Who's the other chap in the shot with Luke? Shirtsleeves in the Bluffs in January!? Sweet !

Robin was up on top yesterday, glassing the crags over by the new viewing platform hovering over The Scottish Tale. He's pretty psyched to ride the gondy up to a little scrubbing and a pint at the end of the day while watching the sunset.

You jump on that thing BK??

Cool photos Bruce!

Sounds like quite the party up there these days. What's with the slogging laps? Are u training for a larger objective?

We had an enlightening chat with RB today as well. Told us he got booted from the upper gondy stn by "some bloke" after driving up there and hiking around.

Edit- oh jeez ghost
