Don specifically made me promise not to tell you Bruce.

Bruce, Tricouni, Hamie, John Howe, Scott Flavelle and Don who lurks as DOSER are the true keepers of information and pictures to our Chamonix by way of chopper or kayak.

Hey Don !

You really should write the chronological story. Your guide book is fantastic.

Poor Yanks are probably still wondering why it's not "Mt. Butte" and "Mount Washington".

Off thread a bit but sorry I missed the party at Perry's as I would of loved to meet all you scurvy knaves. I was intending to come up with Jim but then Mother Nature got in the way. After the snow on the 19th all hell(heaven actually)broke loose with hundreds of tree failure across Vancouver. Me made mucho overtime cleaning up the mess with the end result being 3 weeks of extra holiday for next year. This is the same kind of stuff but what makes this interesting is the look on Henrik Sedin's face after his Range Rover went up against a chestnut tree,he should of got the Volvo.

Beautiful mountains, I always would have liked to climb Waddington. But I understanding the bushwhacking is horrendous.

Serious misunderstanding there, Patrick. You step out of the helicopter a couple of thousand feet above the nearest bush.

These pics were taken from Mt Troubridge nr. Saltery Bay the other day. Looking South towards Egmont.

Anyone identify them? Namely the sexy one in the close-up.

Isn't that Mt Arrowsmith? Looking south from Troubridge you're looking at Vancouver Island.

EDIT: Looking east from Troubridge you'd be looking at Mt Drew (hey!) and more interesting stuff around Marlborough Heights. I know CAD did some stuff in there via kayak. I have an email saved somewhere from him describing it.

Double edit. Yes, you're looking east. That's the unnamed highpoint of the Earle Range, a couple km north of Mt Sumner. circa 1930m. Looks pretty neat on Google Earth - a lot like a mini-Old Settler actually. TFPU.

Ha! Thanks. East indeed.
Earl Peak it is. 1938 m / 6358 ft.
Everything seems south of here sometimes.
Yeah, CAD was so proud of his trip to the Marlborough Heights.
FA of all of em' he said, on the way to the Eldred.

Photo courtesy of Phil Fortier. I skied right by this thing one spring and didn't give it more than a casual glance. Summer makes it look way better.

If you are sledding all the way to Athelstan you may as well go the extra few kms to this cave with the waterfall.



Right across from the pumice mine on the north side of the Lillooet, or somewhere between there aand right across from Affliction Creek anyways.

It is in a slidepath but what the hell. This could be the next Cineplex. Start in the way back of the cave (sheltered from avvies) and drytool out to the ice pillar at the lip. Right?

I heard all the alpine tigers either went to Helmcken or are on the skin-shred-skin-shred treadmill right now.
