We were watching you guys from the Casino Deck. It looked like a bunch of surveyors had lost control of their flagging tape! I recommend you soak your rope in a bucket of bleach for a day or two

Lol.. Oh you liked my big stacks at the crux pitch gear belay?

I think he's got a bit of a thing about roping up with Canadians now. Totally unreasonable. Just because I almost killed him when he tied on with me is no reason to believe that all Canadians will try to kill him.

Couple of shots from this weekend. The view from The Outpost.

Those are from the base. View is way better from higher up.

Anybody know about the rope hanging on the big headwall at the right end? That thing looks amazing.

Climb everything adikted!

What kind of climbing do you want to do? Post up what u like & I'm sure you'll get lots of sandbag recommends here.

If I was on vacation in Squamish my day would look like this:


Multi pitch early

Go eat lunch & hang out, either Kozo sushi or Locavore food truck

Then- Depending on time then do any or all of these: get some shade & go cragging at murrin or go bouldering or if u want more sun go to the lake.

Have fun!

I'm not sure. A lot of those Squamish climbs look the same. Is that Diedre you're headed for? Or Slab Alley? Really hard to tell from the picture.

That's lycra.

About 15 kilometers of the road was overgrown....constant scraping on the car. A few kilometers were quite bad, numerous forearm sized branches being pushed out of the way. You have to not care about your paint. I have a silver car and think I can cut most of the scratches away though. Several sections were a bit tricky and involved some chainsaw action to make modifications to the road with trees....i was in a rav 4 though, anything bigger would be fine. The water bars get big in spots, but if ya know how to drive em....

Climb all the classics. Squamish Buttress, Ultimate Everything, Angel's Crest. Then step it up and hit up the grand wall. If you're not quite there yet, go do peasants route, apron strings and exasperator.

Most areas are worth a visit. 1 star climbs here are better than some 5 star climbs elsewhere.

Looks like fun Nick! You finally got up there eh?

Ryan, Big Mike, and other locals can be a great help, not only in recommending great climbs but in recommending equally great climbs that won't have other climbers above and below you. Not that there is any problem, but try to be thoughtful if you need to pass parties or they want to pass you.

Has anyone heard the Brit explanation of the star rating system that begins, "One star pretty much means you should drop everything else and go climb it?"

Pat on the Back, Payan route, climbs the same lower crack for 10 feet before stepping left and up the face - really fun route for the grade

Fun thread. Getting me stoked, as I'll be heading to Vancouver on Monday for a conference.

It looks like I'm getting lucky with the weather:

My question is: how fast do things dry out? What can I get on Tuesday that won't be seeping?

i'll also have some half-days, so suggestions for routes I can do in the morning and do conference in the afternoon are also welcome.

I'm meeting up a local, so I'm sure I'll be well taken care of. But I'd love to hear route recommendations. Right now The Grand Wall on The Chief is the only thing on the list. I'm breaking into easy 11 and he will be the rope gun. Thoughts? Thanks!
