Speaking of ineffective, broken or lost cameras I seem to have miss placed/forgot mine somewhere.

Canon g12 missing since fall of 2013, has anyone seen it?

Just a heads up..... I'm advocating for the downgrading of Perry's Lieback to the modest grade of *Classic Squamish* 5.10b.

That is all.

Calling all the pitches 10b would work.

As for photos, there was this cease and desist order.

It even looks a bit like a Pet wall for aging hippie has beens!

I met Brian at Quercus recently and he pointed out the location ... but does anyone know whether there is a topo for it? Maybe in situ at the cliff?

Broken cameras......

I was cleaning a new route a couple of years ago, and pried off a chunk about the size of a small micro-wave. Somehow it hit a small left-facing facet on the way down, did a 90 degree change in direction, and landed on the top of my pack, some distance to the side. Naturally my camera was in the top flap of the pack, and that was that! An expensive route.

No comment!

When FT and I climbed the north face of Plinth Fred was leading through the "rock" band and the amount of crap that came down broke my camera inside my pack lid.

But because it was sheltering my neck at the time, my neck survived.

I just think it's incredible that someone took the time to paint a hundred foot dick on that ship. So diabolical!!

Hey all, looking at being up in Squamish for about a week to ten days in early august.
I'd like to hit as much stuff as I can in the under 5.11 category while I am there.
I'll be traveling alone, so who is gonna show this stranger around?

Hey, why don't one of you Squamish folks go do Pipeline and report back to us on this thread. Other than Mike Hengeveld's brilliant "Road to Pipeline" piece, I can't recall every seeing any pictures or hearing of other accounts.

Hey, thanks! I missed that the first time through. Now, pictures of both of my Squamish ascents are on this thread (the other one being Wild Turkey). Can't ask for anything more than that. Thanks Squamish dudes and Tami (is there a female who posts to this thread other than Tami?). I never had a camera back then.

Nice "electric fans" comment, btw, MH2.
