Glenn-how about the crystalline size? looks like there could be some good face climbing if there is stuff to pinch and smear for a good chunk of the height of that wall in the foreground.
MH -rest assured I have done so but thanks for the encouragment.

At last Tricouni posts up something promising - that is a pretty nice looking wall. Pretty low elevation however. Greg is right to be skeptical. It looks a lot like Stienbok and we all know how the crack systems go on that thing. As Brad White put it: "Its thicker than a Nuns pelt up here!"

But you never know until someone actually rubs thier nose against it eh? I bet drew dosn't know anything about it.......

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


Pretty loose description there Anders.....


Lol Reilly! :)

Technically Anders scores the win

But anyone thinking Spearhead would immediately recognize Blackcomb peak, unless of course you wouldn't recognize it at all due to a ideological refusal to patronize lift serviced ski terrain. So good little bit of fishing there Anders, but accuracy goes to Big Mike.

I might reconsider the ruling if you ever cough up those FOSC buttons you owe me.

Reilly wants coastal porn. Hmmm....

Here's a good start:



And with that out of the way, how about:



Or:



(And yes, I know, I've posted these before. But that was in a story about underwear and disease, and I think maybe they belong here, too.)

Here's one. 1000m +

J.C. himself strolled past this in the early nineties.

He promptly alerted the rock climbers w/ photos and everything.

"Red alert" is what I believe he said.

Well, I'll just point out that Squamish is at a pretty low elevation, too, a lot lower than Steinbok.

Thats that wall up in the Danniels valley. Too bad they deactivated the road . So has anyone been on it? I've only seen it in the winter so its hard to judge the crack systems.

Glenn, I'm not saying it can't happen, just that its way more likely to find moss and cedars and the lower you get the more likely you find them. Stienbok and Rexford are good examples of how high that shrubbery can go. So what is that body of water in the foreground?

I think there's some big granite on the north side of Toba inlet. I'd have to go digging through the archives, but I remember some shots JC took up there that showed a lot of rock.

You might be thinking of Klite peak, up the Klite river. That is a really neat looking sharp spire, but generally surrounded by less dramatic climbing opportunities. I have no photos unfortunately.

Actually, maybe it's the NW face of Bell, now that I look at it again?
