I'm a big fan of Lhilheqey instead of Cheam but I find the capitalization in the middle of In-SHUCK-Ch kinda awkward.

BUMP. This thread needs more Serl.

Yes how about some good stories involving Don with pics.I think the retirement will be like the Who's (farewell) concert in 1981.

Harry that was a choice little bit of video. I'm not sure which part I liked best, the superlative golden granite climbing above an ocean of cloud and glaciation .... or Jim Brennan waxing poetical about his newly acquired Assistant Winter Pancake flipper ticket!

Don Serl's retirement/birthday party was a social highlight of the year. Here's a link to some photos:

(If it doesn't work, let me know. I'm still trying to figure Flickr out.)

I'd like to lodge a protest on the general trend to show enticing photos of attractive unclimbed features with a deliberate and annoying habit of keeping the identity secret.

Fun for you no doubt but lets get serious here. No body climbs these things around here enough to start with. Wouldn't it be nice to entice the next generation into actually climbing these things? What are we hoarding them for? Our next reincarnation?

i'm not getting any younger myself nawmean?

Like - where is that cool looking ice hose fer cryin out loud? Do I have to give Don a call?

Don specifically made me promise not to tell you Bruce.
Sad but true.

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.
