You should check out the van isle aid scene for more of the same

Frostback, your comment takes me back to the time I put in in the southern Vancouver Island winter whitewater kayaking scene. Hypothermia was never far away.

Oplopanax, you were right! The 1985 Jim Campbell guide's description of High Country matches the mystery crack.
The 45-metre length marked on the topo suggests that they continued farther through the jungle at the top, though.

Hope everyone got a chance to enjoy the recent bit of high pressure before the perpetual gray arrives.

Hereís one I took of Chris Trull leading out on the first ascent of Shoulders of Giants while Jon Rigg holds the rope.

33 & 1/3 traverse was the saddest FA I ever did.

It's in the Squamish Bouldering Guide

Nick Jones nailed a roadside cliff that way in the 80's. I'm sure we weren't the first to sample the general area. The cliff was left roadside up near a bend in the road at the valley "entrance". There is a short bouldery cliff nearby with hand cracks down off the road lookers right. There's the odd fixed piece kicking around the valley for discovery. I guess the idea is to go climbing lines that appeal and not fuss about if anyone has been there before. It used to feel very remote up that way.

Up from the skies saw a recent ascent so I wouldnít be surprised if thatís the one. Iím away from a pc so unable to confirm with the bigwalls guide.

Great photos everyone, hope the lurkers on here come out of the gray shadows and share some too!

It's "Just Blessed" in the Valley of Shaddai. Way off the beaten path, no road noise, no crowds... A completely different feel from any other crag/area in Squamish.

Well, I haven't been there for a few years, but up until then there were no crowds.

I was guessing orifice fish too - Valley of Shaddai has some gems - Iíve heard thereís been quite a bit of development there in the last couple seasons by a Mr.Mali and co.

Picking up where Ghost left off:

How many routes can you name here?

Name? None.

How many can I see? Boatloads.
