For the record, it's "Little Feat" as in; Lowell and the gang or; no big deal, circa 1980 by yours truly.
The bolt was added long after I quit soloing laps up and down it as part of my Smoke Bluff routine and placed without the courtesy of a phone call.
I will get up there and remove it at some point.
Companion route to the left, "Big Foot".

Daryl was the master of stacked pins; Leepers, arrows, blades, rumps; you name it.
Anyone who had the privilege of climbing anything with Daryl would attest to his mastery of the craft. As Jim pointed out, we may have been light by comparison, but Daryl's personal trajectory had the ballistics of an anvil.
Respect, RIP.

Expo really did have quite the music line up. I don't know about Loverboy but Miles Davis was good. I think that was one of his last live shows...?

I feel real grateful to have learned from a master. He really was that good. I was an eager student and had a few questions that he was more than happy to share. I am still light.

Hey perry, I appreciate your concern of a lack of a phone call, but didn't it replace a suspect old KB? also, if the pro goes, the moss will return faster. Its an excellent 25 footer. It would be sad to lose it.

It was a bomber long Bugaboo and there's acceptable natural gear nearby.
It's only 10c, shorter than most highballs in the boulders and over plenty of flat ground for the pad armies.

I'm with Chief on this one -i recall getting a bomber RP in close to the peg and thinking that one could likely dispense with the fixed gear.

The climb out to the left, between Trixie and Big Foot/Stink Foot, that got put up a few years back has 2(I think) bolts on it and it still mossed over rapidly.

Frankly that whole area from Little Feat to the Boekwyt climb on the other side of the trail is the best growing zone in the bluffs... I mean something can be buffed perfectly clean one day and be totally overgrown a week later. It's way faster than any of the other crags there. Is it the shade? The wetness? The lack of traffic? Floating spores? Runoff from a hidden grow-show?

Somebody should do a microclimate study. The hundred square meters next to the stairs there is probably the biggest carbon sink within 100 km of Squamish.
