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.

Theres a line there. Once again, no hint as to where the peak is.

By the way chris christie was just up at Athelstan skiing (first rate apparently) and he said there's a good looking mixed line. There's a Tyax fuel dump and shelter there for a half decent bivy.
1 hour in on sleds. 2 hours up to the base.

See devils Club? thats how you spill the beans for the next generation of alpine tigers.

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.

Ha! totally. Treadmill is right. I can no longer partake because it messes with my afternoon nap schedule.

That athelstan or whatever cave looks like a poor man Helmeken.

Yes, I also want to hear about who got kicked in the Bute. Nice to see your follicle compromised head on the rock GF on the Squamish thread.

This is any easy one. Free beer at the Brew pub to the first one who gets it.

Bute went from remote mystery to just another movie set over night. Fifty foot diving boards, 2000 foot top rope rehearsals, craft service on the summit. Now it's back to remote mystery. Any body climb anything this year?

Harry - I guess alpha gendarme. Totally wild guess. Last time I rapped off it was about 83

Cool. That guy emailed me last year and I warned him of the impending onslaught of Hollywood and base jumpers so I bet he postponed a year
