Both of those pics are after Kris. It was a green line before.

Honnold recently soloed 290 (yes 290) pitches in a day in squamish for his "birthday challenge". Go read about it at the excellent RV project:

Doing laps on the apron and smoke bluffs Im sure many people got a chance to see this!

I'd like to see a high-res gps track of that 290 pitch day spooled out in about 2 minutes. Maybe I should look at the link, too. Thanks.

Really nice to see all the Grand Wall photos, too.

290 pitches, solo, in a day.
Free solo of UWall.
Does not compute, does not compute, does not........

2 years ago I watched AH solo up a 4 pitch 10d in Potrero, but I could not watch him downclimb it. This was the day after he had completed a 20 pitch 13+ new route, and the day he was flying home. His idea of a rest day? Does not compute, does not compute..........

Kids these days!

I figured as I've been nerding out on this thread for years without chiming in I'd share a few photos of our adventure this past weekend. Thank you all for your stories and comedy.

Uwall solo is out of hand! Nice to see you here Hamie!! does not compute indeed..

Back to Jim's query.. here's another shot from my maiden voyage up the grand.

Aislinn shivering and Nate taping up his poor thumb after my huge pillar whipper sucked it up into his belay device...

So cool Reilly!! I'm pretty sure it's gone. Where was it? I've never heard of anywhere referred to as "Whistler Town Centre" before.

Ais is SO CUTE in that pic. Bummer about the thumber ; Mike you brat.


"Whister Town Centre" is an old term for sure. Remember that the main part of the town used to be the garbage dump. What is now called Creekside & the Husky station used to be where commerce happened.

So when the development started on the garbage dump it was differentiated from the base of the old gondola and the "Olive Chair" by calling it the town centre.

That's my memory of it.........

I remember "Stoney's" but didn't spend any time there........I"m sure others might chime in .

There was the Ski Boot pub, aka "The Boot" that was particularly friendly to underaged beer enthusiasts and other forms of life...
