For the over 60 crowd, can we do it as a relay, but it may be tough to find 18 of us!

So first to red point all 18 and top rope the other 2 clean. You're on.

And to keep things fair ill let you know where I keep the big gear for boogie, and the reds and yellows for astro logger,I don't want to have an unfair advantage with 80 some cams at my disposal

Sorry Perry, were gonna wreck your list but I'm sure we could use some help with the 18 min 18 beer 1/8 challenge, that's gonna be the toughest one- I'm a puker.

Edit- help me out here Luke now you're saying 2 TRs? Which ones can we TR I'm gonna do those tomorrow.

2nd edit- you saw there was sport climbs on there right??

This is pretty entertaining, reminds me of a few yrs back me & a friend had aspirations to climb the nose so we were always trying to come up with these 31 pitch link ups & find the most efficient way to do the pitches. A good one i remember was doing st vitus up the buttress then doing Wiretap on the way down, once u hit the campground hang a right & head up slot machine, xenolith dance, ride the bullet & moonwatcher(i think), then walk out bellygood & finish on the upper black dyke, a big, fun, moderate day for sure.

Another list we came up with was "Astro Bluffs" -doing the same # of pitches as Astroman with the same grades as all the pitches on Astroman in as close proximity as possible. We tried it one day but got shutdown by rain about 2.5 pitches in. Obviously this would climb nothing like the real Astroman (much easier)but fun nonetheless & a good day out for sure. Give it a try sometime.


-penny lane 9
-crime 11c
-power windows 11a (was graded 11c at this time??)
-quarryman 8
-gripper 11b
-popeye & the raven 10c
-health hazard 10a
-teenage girls 11c
-ugly american 10a
-werewolves 11a (also called 11c at the time)
-split beaver 10b
-asleep at the wheel 8



Edit- Perry I like the point system u got there ^^^^^^ creates yet another challenge within the challenge. Another thing I just realized is that climbing Astrologger & then taking the new trail from the Slhany or whatever it's now called up to the saddle & then back to the cirque then walking down the reg trail to clean crack may be the best way to go if u aren't up for climbing AC on your way to boogie.

The Chiefs Challenge is most definitely the definitive Squamish 5.11 Classic 1 pitch tour

BUT KNowing that we have scooped Astro Squatch South, on Temple Crag 12,982 ft (3,957 m) - Grade V 5.11c, from under everyones noses this summer, already....

this list is going to be CAKE in a day

In the finest Canadian traditions, I was raised on bannock, maple syrup, moose meat, saskatoons and preemptive corporal punishment.

The over-60 challenge does have a couple of differences. If you've led eleven elevens, or toproped eleven elevens, or belayed a someone on eleven elevens, or even watched someone climb eleven elevens, over the last eleven years, then you're in.

I think I'm close.

The difference between 11a and 11d is far greater than 10a and 10d I always thought
