Sunny days in late September dictated an early start to the weekend and where better to spend a Friday afternoon than on the w face of the grand wall route of the Squamish Chef?

Unlike my friend, ST poster jstod, who is riding or skiing up mountains on-a regular basis, your correspondent opted for age and cunning, pulling on gear when steep, Even so the tank was dry by the time we hit the “sail flake” in the waning light.

Ah the indignities of middle age, nothing like having ones dry-heaving after trying hard on some mandatory undercling recorded by your friends for posterity! Jstod kindly took my lead on this pitch.

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

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

Great pics of the murrin climb, so many good additions. Got any pics of sunset strip you can share, it looks like a total winner!

Regarding “shoulders of giants” that looks like a good one and no doubt would do the giants Eric and Daryl proud. Do you know which route has the station drilled just below the fir on the flats?

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.

Interesting Iron Oxide Ghost. Helps to narrow it down.

Can’t say I know what’s up with the station at the flats, is it new?

Belay stations are popping up like hot cakes these days

The station in question is just below ones feet when one gets to edge of righward traverse on the flats pitch of the grand -i think its either from "under the gun" or up from the skies but thought I would ask around. All else failing I should consult the squamish walls topos

Up from the skies saw a recent ascent so I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the one. I’m 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 - I’ve heard there’s been quite a bit of development there in the last couple seasons by a Mr.Mali and co.

He's too busy selling ICOs for vegetable matter-backed cryptocurrencies.
