Speaking of 5.14s local gal Josie H. recently redpointed 14b at Horne. Izzat the hardest Canadian female send ever? It might be but I'm not informed enough to be sure.

Of course they post people's photos on the internet, and steal from people's blog without permission too... Lol

Great job for Josie, she's a really great climber & cool person. This is probably only the 4th or 5th ascent of the route.

Not sure why gripped posted this though.

Is it wise to make headlines about areas the access society has listed as closed?

Because gripped obviously doesn't have it together.. Shady business practices and ethics... Very disappointed...

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?

Peace

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!
