God, I love this thread. My last two posts were to the "what is ass" thread and something about dagos.

Really cool pics and dismembered memories, Jim. You are now a full member of the CRS battalion. (can't remember shite"

Was there an accident on the Chief today? (Saturday, 2 Aug)

After we got baked off whatever it was we were pretending to climb we wound up in town and on the spit in the afternoon, and could hear and see a helicopter hovering around the upper North Gulley. Eventually it went away, but not long after came back and spent more time in there.

Always scary to hear & see that.

Yes Dave. Apparently there was a non life threatening injury on Angel's Crest this afternoon.

We did a HETS operation off the Acrophobes.
I heard Honnold third classed The Grand in 38 minutes.

I hope the injured person recovers well.

38min? What, no time for "Honnolding" ????

Starting early is essential for beating the heat and crowds.
On Saturday, The Bear and I were at the top of Snake by 08:00.
Followed up with a nice cruise on the SUP from the front yard to Darrel Bay and back.
I ended semi recumbent on the sofa and lapsed into an indolent torpor only to be awakened for the HETS rescue off the Angel Crest.
Some kind of multi sport day I guess.

Yes, you gotta know when to fold 'em.

We didn't get an early enough start (something about driving until after midnight), but at least were smart enough to figure out that overhanging offwidth in full sun on a 30-degree day was the wrong thing.

The right thing? Uh, lets get out on the spit and get in the water and wind! Turned out the spit was hosting some kind of international kite boarding comp, and we not only got beer, but saw some pretty amazing off-the-water flying. Multi-sport indeed.

I posted one picture on the previous page, but here are a few more

Whoa! Hamish... Hope you're okay.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, but other times we really need the words.

Lightning? The rope looks muddy, too. Some kind of close call and quite a neat de-sheathing. I hope you recover well.

jeez when it's that hot in Squamish you should pool some cash for the chopper ride to the Little Toba, thousands of feet of sun kissed granite with a glacier or 20 to keep things cool.

87 km from brackendale as the crow, or A-star, flies... that must be closer than Pemberton!
