Yes, Big Mike, I am a friend of Relic's and we met twice - once at Smoke Bluffs and a second time at the Psyche Ledge. You have some great pics of your trip - nice panos! I'm about to leave myself for some traveling (and also Ryan and Relic)....heading to Utah for a few weeks...

The first thing I think of when lookin' at that shot is how I'd plant that piece of cream :-D Mind you it might be shite once on it; could be harshh rocky ground given the crag above.

Is that basalt ? It looks a bit like those huge crags above Lonetree Creek near Lions Bay - which are total choss .

But, hey, cream could be shite and what looks like choss might be bomber.

Grin.

I think it's granite, but I was working on the other side of the valley, didn't get time to check.

Seems like the biggest issue to development is the boat ride to get to the roads to get to the base though. Same with most other fjords in BC.

OPO... Assuming your not talking Prince Rupert.

Alot of rock round here like that (other PR)... "granitic" in nature, but pretty "fry-able" in-fact. We call it "Higgyland Rock", as there is a small sport crag in town w/ same rock.

Always worth a look , eh?

I'm guessing...... Britain River? Low elevation long shot.

Too funny, Tami. I know exactly what you mean. Had similar thoughts, though it has been 19 years since I planted my last tree.

Nice Brownie.

Here's a long shot...does anyone know anything about the two aid routes Bald Egos and I Shot The Sheriff?

Ive seen the film Beyond Gravity which has a segment on BE and know that it has had a second ascent by Matt Maddaloni....also the lower crux has been repeated by Nathan Kukathas. It's a striking line that heads up left of U Wall onto Pan Wall, earning it the only grade VI route around here. It took Maddaloni 5 days to complete.

I know nothing about ISTS. I want to climb it this December...

Also, I read somewhere that Perry has an unfinished route up the right side of the Badge....anyone know anything about that? Perry, if ya reading this, wanna go finish it?

Slightly off topic, but here's a video from Lynn Canyon this past summer. I met these guys there, and ended up getting a starring role.
Also, it was really hot this summer, too hot to make the drive up to Squamish really worth it, so this is what I spent a fair amount of time doing. I'm the guy in the white shorts with shoes.

A story:

BMacD, The Dirty Doughnut and myself found common ground around a wet from the beer of others, terrycloth covered bar table at the American Hotel on Main Street after closing down the Cecil on a Wednesday night. You have to give it up for Greg Shannon, who abided the youths...

So anyway, Vancouver was (and still is under a different guise) awash in beer into the late hours.

At 1am, I said I'd love to stay but I'm starting a new job, starting today.

There was solemnity regarding a good bar mate given over to employment.

Life is full of regrets.

Looks like the classic South Crack above Tenaya Lake.
