Yes Andy and Dru, the pictures are of the same feature.

The wide crack is on a slab and didn't seem too hard. Bailage occurred due to lack of bolt kit and gardening tools.

Gardening tools? Maybe plant some oak trees in those wide cracks.

Nice photo.

In the bottom photo, looks like the Devil's Tongue just right of centre, with the Devil's Toothpick between the Tongue and the deep notch.

Yes and Peak 8200 on the left. Culbert's guidbook shows a great looking buttress on the other side of 8200. dropping into McNaught Valley, over the ridge.

Wandering through a bookstore today, I happened upon a mint copy of Gordie Smaill's 1975 Chief Guide, this thing is classic history! Lots of funny stuff in here, plus some classic info on great aid lines of the past.

Coolio find . Did you check out the bookstore to see if they had other climbing lit? Might have been part of a load of stuff tossed out by someone's mum, ex or widow.........

I loved the Smaill guide. Especially the cartoons. Was a very strong influence !!!

Picked up some other BC mountaineering anthology stuff, snagged a few other goodies there over the years. I really dig the coastal climbing history, especially from the 70s. I've always been interested in the early wall climbing scene around Squamish with the likes of Hatten, Burton, Weinstein, Piro, Sutton, Culbert etc. Hard to find info about some of the aid climbs from that era. I;m sure there are still some places on the wall that few have ever been. Picking up this guide was just part of the puzzle.

That photo of the NE face of Mt Redoubt brings back some great memories. Climbed it with Dick Mitten and Corina Acheson in 1977 or so. First time I ever used crampons.

Amazing place.

It's actually McNaught Peak these days as per Beckey; Harold Redekop & John Manuel climbed the buttress you mention in '83,

"Loose class 4-5 with poor belays", sure to see a lineup this summer!
