I was tired after shuteye, but i just couldn't resist sending Ghost an email inquiring if him and Mari would have some time to climb on Friday. Ghost had to work and so did Mari, but she was itching to climb after work.
I showed up to the lower town wall early and took a couple photos.
The view from the parking lot
The rails run along the base of the cliffs
Then Mari showed up and we hit up this gem.
Mari on Roger's corner 5.8?
She sent it. I was able to climb it but the endurance to get it clean just wasn't there after so much climbing and traveling.
The pitch ends at a beautiful overhanging hand crack called Breakfast of Champions 10a
When Dave said Mari hauled me up this thing up thread, he meant it.. The start is really overhanging and I was on a take a move pace to start the pitch.. lol It eases up a bit after that and I was able to get decent jams.
It was a beautiful evening
It was just a teaser really. A taste. I will definitely have to return. Thanks Mari!

Welcome to the club. Yesterday she trashed me on some back-in-the-boonies rig north of Squamish. Some "easy & fun" thing she led that I couldn't follow without grabbing slings.
Sorry we couldn't connect with you this weekend, but then you'd probably have just flailed like me. I think she should find a real climber to tie on with and you and I can bumble around on easy climbs.
