There are several photos of Squish in the current Gripped maggie. Also a nice profile of Greg Foweraker, with a list of his favourite new routes, and various business endeavours. Clearly Tami was not asked to contribute, as there is no mention of his alleged food consumption prowess!!!!

Congrats Greg, it's good to see the recognition.

I recognize him and he shows the seemingly effortless positivity that lies behind both accomplishment and friendliness.

U don't suck bud! It's supertopo's photo app that's wack! May i suggest picking up photoshop express at the app store for the grand price of free? Then u can color correct, tweak, rotate and crop on your phone. Supertopo also doesn't flip your pics anymore!!

I sharpened these a tad so we can read em better




Great to see you having fun in the mountains. Please feel free to regale us with some photos!

I have one question for you sir... When are we going wall climbing?? ;)

Those shots are wonderful MA! This is on summit of wad on same trip. Further to the food eating -my daughter just informed hamish the other day that "the only exercise my dad gets these days is going to the fridge for more snacks "

Nice shot of the Wadd picnic, Greg. More on the food eating - we ate like force fed hogs on that trip. The only way to trim down our monster packs was a daily eating contest, at least of the good things like chocolate and sardines. Remember we left a cairn of the boring stuff - noodles, rice etc on the summit of Combatant. Don has a great photo of me passed out there under a makeshift Therma Rest sunshade - my tummy a mountain in itself.

I suppose that I am asking the obvious. Did MA [or????] make the 3rd ascent of SV? If not, where did the pix come from?

Sooooo out of the loop here in the Koots.

Hi Hamish, M-A made perhaps the 8th ascent, or thereabouts. But it was the first solo ascent, done as part of an Asperity link-up. Pretty impressive.

And get a new camera (they've improved a lot in the last couple of years), and get those hands healed up!

So SV has now reached Mummery's stage 3, the "easy day for a lady" status? He probably soloed it in a day from Vanc. 50 years and 2 months ago. Wow!! You must be getting old. :) :)

Glenn, that WAS a new camera, only 3 months old. A Panasonic ZS25 Lumix, with a Leica lens. The lens thing is somewhere at the bottom of the crag. Any suggestions for a replacement? I don't understand why they don't make something with a viewfinder. Everyone I talk to wants one.

Hamie, rough about the camera. My Canon Powershot G16 has a viewfinder, but it is not that accurate (sometimes cuts off the top of the peaks). Viewfinder cameras are thin on the ground. Whatever you get, let me know, please: Ellis wants one, too.
