Don't refer to San Francisco as Frisco either. That's way worse than saying Cali.

For the hour it takes to scramble up Gunsight and look at the top of Bridalveil Falls is a good return on your investment.

Hey, Mike, are you coming in next weekend? I have the Roper "green" Guide you can borrow.

You can stop by for beers, and I may just let you spend the night. I'm in Santa Clara, near San Jose Intl Airport.

Bottom line? Have some fun!

Dingus- We will be around till the 24th... When I'm referring to Squamish descriptions this is what I'm talking about. This is a classic route right by the Chief campground.

A noteworthy route cruises up the wall between Bulletheads
North and the left end of Campground Wall.

Liquid Gold 5.11a TOP 100
This climb is outstanding. The crack that splits the final
wall may be one of the best at the grade in Squamish.
Scramble five metres up from the cliffbase trail to start.

Pitch 1 (5.10d, 40 m) Climb a shallow, left-facing corner
which eventually arches left. When a bolt appears, head
for it and finger traverse a dyke rightward. Easy but
runout moves lead to a corner on the right. Gear belay.

Pitch 2 (5.11a, 20 m) Follow a corner which jogs left
around roofs. One tough move. Belay below a chimney.

Pitch 3 (5.10c, 30 m) Work into the chimney, which narrows
to offwidth size. Good cracks lead to a big ledge.

Pitch 4 (5.11a, 50 m) Stellar hand and finger cracks
lead up the wall. A couple of belay options are possible
with the best located at 50 metres where the angle eases.
Alternatively, climb a 70-metre super pitch. Classic.

Pitch 5 (5.10b, 20 m) Finish up the crack above. Either
descend (hike and rappel) via the Maana Slab in Bulletheads
South or hike to the top of Wild Turkey, find an
anchor and make three double-rope raps to the ground.

Bluey!!! Thanks for the offer buddy but we are flying into Sacramento so I think we will get supplies and find somewhere to crash outside the park for the night... Relic says he has the Reid guide to between that and cmac's we should be able to get it done... Like Tami says "We don't need no stinkin' guidebooks!" (Not true.... I like to know where I'm going...)


MMMM Taco trucks.... MMMM In-and-Out Burger!

You should take the In-N-Out challenge on the drive down the 101. Double Double animal style at every In-N-Out you pass.

I tried once from Truckee to SF, and failed.

Have fun man, it's the best time of year to be in the Valley in my opinion. They turned off the waterfalls but oh well. I'll be stoked to see some shots, you've got a good eye.

Haha... In-and-Out challenge.... Were you still able to climb after that?? :) Thanks for the compliment Brandon it's something I've always had, my dad has it too so I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree... My challenge has always been getting image to look like it did in real life!

To be honest In and Out is a pretty good employer, they pay more than any other fast food. It is the only socal chain where you will see mostly teenagers working
