If we're talking "best thing that's been done in the Coast Mountains" the Devils Thumb group complete traverse (Haley/Schaefer), Kobus's Wadd by kayak trip, and the complete S to N traverse from Vancouver to Alaska (Culbert/Edwards/Millar) should also be on the radar.

Comparing Beckey and Beckey to Culbert, Edwards and Millar is really apples and oranges. Not sure which of those two is the "best thing ever done" in the Coast Mountains, but it's one of those two, IMHO.

Can't argue with those choices. The box of mixed apples and oranges and other fruit is getting fuller.

Any guess on this? Coast Mountains, obviously.

Hint: it's not the Waddington Range.

Cor fackin 'ell mate, that's bloody amazing.

I haven't traveled in enough of the Coast Range to know all that much first hand, but all the years I spent editing the CAJ gave me a pretty good idea of what is out there. But whatever it is in your pic is new to me. It definitely looks like Coast granite, but from where?

It's coast granite. John Clarke never got into that corner of the world.

You're good, Bruce.

How about this one? I think this will be easy.

Lembert Dome?


But, kidding aside, tell us more about the Septentrion Spires.

Lembert Dome! You're good, Ghost!

In the Pantheon Range north of Waddington Range, west of Nirvana Pass and not far from Bluff Lake and Whitesaddle Helicopters.

AFAIK, none of those buttresses or ridges have been climbed. The rock is granitic but I think it might be a bit shattered. Worth a look, though.

My ex-wife and some of her friends did a ski trip into the Pantheon Range one February. I don't remember seeing that exact view, but there were a lot of pictures that left me drooling.

Some climbers younger than us ought to take this as a challenge and get in there...

You've got me on those. Not Waddinton area, though, I'm pretty sure.

Ok here's another excruciatingly tough nut to crack
I though I was ready for that new game show "Name that mountain" but I now realize I'm a lightweight! Since I can't identify yours I'll try to stump you with mine!

Bruce's photo is from the Spearhead Range. Even better, without gondolas and such.

How come none of you losers was at the Garibaldi Park planning meeting tonight, at Robson Square? (OK, those in Squamizh and Whistler can go to the one in Whistler on the 6th.) It's important to go to these meetings, as you never know what's going on, and should get your five cents in.

I was looking through some old slides for some buildering photos that need scanning, and I stumbled across this. I'd forgotten about this wall. For those who think that the Coast Mountains is just big peaks and snow bumps, try this. Unclimbed, AFAIK, and fairly easy to get to.

Hint (the only one I'll give - it can wait for another generation, if it has to): it's in the Coast Mountains between the Fraser River on the south and the Nass River on the north.
