what a weekend - parking lots full, half of them climbers. guys on the grand, Cerberus and the malamute was loaded with ropes like summer. Even last Train to Hicksville was getting sieged and scrubbed.

I hope its not dry summer. we havn't had a big fire season in a while but this might be it. I wonder if the Gondola guys have thought of that?

Ya. Fire season could be nasty. I still think we'll see some major precip in march and april. A la 2004..

Today was absolutely gorgeous! Sandra and i met up with Kyle and got a couple laps in. Twas a bit colder than Friday.

Last week Kyle and Nina and i got out and hit up the skulduggery crag.

I got Kyle to hang a rope for me, on the new 11a just to the left of Skulduggery.

Anyone know what this thing is called??

Then I tried to adjust the exposure to compensate for the white streaks, and ended up overexposing somehow... Doh!!


Then our buddy Ben showed up


To be continued....

One of the best days of xc skiing in years up at the WOP! Perfect kick, fast skis, and rocketship downhills. If I keep this up I may be fit enough to climb soon.

Great to see everybody getting out. One of these days the car will stop in Squish and climbing season will start.

Cheers,

Todd

Nice Todd! Good to hear you're out enjoying yourself too!!

Trippy Kyle


Trippy Nina



Kyle wanted to do so I threw the camera on the tripod and played with the smartphone remote feature.. Pretty cool.

When Kyle finished, the Pad people showed up, and we went down to Neat and Cool for a few highballs.

Since i was too destroyed from all the climbing I actually knocked the dust off of my camera yesterday & tried taking some photos.

Here's a sequence of Josh on………



(Mike, Brownie, Cormier no guessing!)

















I also saw what appeared to be this woman & her dog rescuing or kidnapping someone from the nearby mental ward. I figured i'd snap a pic in case the authorities needed info later.



















Yes it is full on Juneary out there.

Big Mike, there's something wonderful about the first 2 sets of photos above that reminds me when some of us would just head out to Murrin just to fool around and have a good time. You would have fitted in well with my crowd!

Wow Ryan! Really impressed dude. I knew there was a photog in there somewhere under the boulder weenie! :)

Thanks Todd. It seems faster from afar i am certain! :)

Considering how well we get on Glenn i'd say you're right! Fun.. It's all about fun. Can't wait to rope up with u this summer!!

Good eye Andy!

Kyle was kind enough to put up Werewolves of London, so i could hangdog and flail all over it. It was NOT pretty, but i managed to take it down. Ryan took some shots, i believe?? Maybe he will post em up.
