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...

There are at least 2 technical routes there so far - Diedrich and the two Brits that have been plundering all the goods lately. Myself and suzanne walked past them exiting out to Bluff lake. They looked good even plastered in snow and the existing routes sound stellar. Short flight too. Lots of other good looking stuff nearby - Zues, Fenris. Those spires are just west of Nirvana pass if thats where you were ghost.

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

warmer.


Ok I can't lie .... the first one is some totally obscure thing that even the guy in the picture likely wouldn't recognize and he has spent a good part of the past 3 winters staring at it. It was a mistake when I posted it - I thought it was Mt dalgliesh, which is nearby.

Anyhoo, the other one is a no brainer for anyone usually on this thread borne after 1978 or so

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.

BC Parks has ruled out any expansion of mountain biking in the park - it's in the draft master plan. But you can go to their website and express your views about it if you want - http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/planning/mgmtplns/garibaldi/garibaldi_mp.html

The height of the wall is about 700 metres (2300 feet). It's higher than the Chief.

I don't know for sure how good the cracks are, but from what I can remember, I think they should be reasonably clean. Rock is excellent.
