Just as Tami sez, that pic is a stunner. Good light and no fright. The Relic.

Rolfr, access to Schism Rock is excellent, 10 minutes from the road. Robin has been doing quite a bit of route development on crags nearby and, I think, on S.R. itself.

I can see trouble brewing already. Robin's probly renamed it Splodge Rock and now after months of quiet the proletariat will invade, fix all his rigging, poach his remaining lines, and rename it Barleyadequateland. Classic!

Relic rocks it again with another great shot, but for different reasons.

Steely eyes and blue tops may be the new norm......

Ain't that the Pillar Lake pillar or is it a different one?

Oplo, I think Hamie's photo isn't the Pillar Lake pillar. I don't know where Hamie's pillar is

This is the real Pillar Lake pillar with me on top.

The Pillar, near Falkland, BC, May 30, 1962

looks like good conglomerate. Someone should start a climbers Ranch in Falder. I think Herb Bluer might still be there - he'd be perfect as the Ranch manager with all his stories and "Kiss My Axe" belt buckle!

Bruce, it's conglomerate, but not very good quality.

Maybe Hamie's is the Savona Balanced Rock or something. Looks like till, not even lithified yet.

Going by the size of the boulder on top it would be funny if you ran into a hoodoo where you had to ice climb up a pillar of unconsolidated silt and then switch to rock shoes for a V10 problem on the capstone boulder ;)

Probably getting down would be the simplest thing imaginable. Just give it a good kick and down you go.

Getting down safely, though....

It's in the Chilcotin somewhere. Up some creek like Relay, Tyaxe, Tyaughton or?????? Too many creeks, too many years!! It definitely has your name on it. You and BK.....

The youngsters on this thread will be interested to learn about Dick's pro when he led the other pillar. First he climbed the tree on the right, attached a sling as high as he could, threaded the rope and came back down. He then climbed the pillar without any other pro, just using the sling in the tree. Pretty cool!

Glenn I have forgotten how you guys got down. Did you place a bolt on top, or rappel down the opposite side?
