I like to think you are hiking the S2S with a long lens but more likely the walk-off from the Buttress.

Yo, me and some buddies have done the roof pitch on The Badge...wild. Now we're chillin in our ledges after some quality climbing, taking in the last rays of the sun, and of course getting wasted. Give us a holla, eh?

Do you have the ledges hanging free under the roof? That would be so perfect.

NOICE !!!!! :-D ( attempt by a 54 year old mother of two to sound coolio )


Love the pix.

Hey Mike, whuttiz that new housing(??) development in the pic there above? It looks like a cutblock north of Valleycliffe. What are the impacts on the Bluffs ?

Here in Vangcouver it's "hot" ( My husband says we all need to go to Atlanta, GA). Khatsalano Days so W4th Ave was closed between Burrard & Macdonald as hipsters, the tattooed, people pushing bikes, people with 3 dogs on leashes, families and old couples ( ;-D ) waddled amongst the hawkers, the painted, the goofy, the stores and the unmedicated.

Even hotter down here a couple of hundred km south. And we've got the same crazy "This Days" and "That Daze" all over the city, too. Going out and about unmedicated into those scenes, in this weather is crazy.

And I don't know what you're seeing from Vancouver or Squamish, but the supermoon just rose over the forest east of our house. Wouldn't that be something to see while hanging in a ledge way up on the wall.

Too bad Fish Boy is on the wrong side of the Chief to see it. Sounds like he's medicated just right to appreciate it.

Some hazy valley off to the East. Oplopanax will have to tell us if in the first pic it is behind American Border Peak, Canadian Border Peak, or some other thing.

Look out Fish Boy, it's comin' for ya!

Coolest place in Squamish today possibly. I nearly went hypothermic during some escapades with a stuck rope

Thanks for the tour, Mike.

Great photo for a hypothermic rapper, Oplo!

Thanks for the possible ID, Tami. I'll go back and look when the horizon is clearer, and when I get up the nerve to re-enter the eerily perfect neighborhood of Caulfeild Plateau.

Andy - Fer a cloak of invisibility on CowFeild plateau you have two options - one, Vuarnets & a 1980s taslan-coated Patagonia fleece coat and jeans so ya fit into the "West Vancouver White Person From The 1980s" OR borrow a large-ish kid and sidewalk-snowplow style stroller and go as "The Older Dad" . Ignore comments of "Are you her grampa?"

Snicker.


And Mike !?!? WTF ?!!?!?


But I remember being chased outta my sleepin' bag at Squish at dawn's early light when it was hot like this. Brohm Lake this afternoon early :-D

Climbing on the Apron slabs in wx like this is gawdawful :-D

Fingercracks in direct sun aren't real fun either.

A few years ago, on a blistering hot August afternoon, after climbing in the shade at Up Among Fhe Firs, Eric Neumann and I decided that since we were climbing pretty well, we should go over to the Malemute and jump on Clean Crack. The friends we were climbing with looked at us like we had lost our minds, but we had no doubts at all.

I don't think either of us got more than ten feet off the ground. Zero friction on the face, and hands so sweaty that no amount of chalk could help.

And I pulled the same stupid trick on Borderline. We finished cleaning the second pitch early one gorgeous summer afternoon just as the sun hit the wall. So, hanging out at the belay at the top of the first pitch we broke three straws off one of our cleaning whisks, and drew to see who would have the honor of trying for the first ascent. I won, and started racking up. Eric and Susan tried to convince me to wait for the next morning, but I was stoked and...

...and it was searing hot, no friction, sweaty hands, and I repeatedly greased off up in the 11c part, tearing up my finger and smashing an elbow before I finally gave up.

Forecast is for close to 35C (95F) at Index today. Should make for fun climbing -- I'm glad I'm working this weekend.
