Well, yeah, but when it's dyed white and groomed it makes for great track skiing.

We may have to rat ghost out to his wife, for herring abuse and other un-Scandihooligan behaviours.

Maybe it should have its own thread, or be elsewhere, but the Kid Cormier is doing a fundraiser sometime in the next ten days. In his words:

Hey everybody I'm going to be participating in a climbing fundraiser in which proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. My goal is a solo winter ascent of the Grandwall here in Squamish, sometime between now and dec. 15th.

If you want to help support this cause you can donate online, at http://my.e2rm.com/personalPage.aspx?registrationID=1665206&langPref=en-CA

*note* I'm not actually going to be at the cliffhanger event this Saturday, but will be attending the grande finale superhero party at the hive next Saturday.

* Cliffhanger and The Hive are climbing gyms in Vancouver.

The larger event, of which Luke's effort is a part:

Am I really that bold that I'm taking on Fundraiser for the less fortunate to give Ryan D a head start. Or is it stupidity?

If anyone wants to sponsor my effort, process go towards helping those less fortunate, something like a buck a pitch for the 10 pitches, times two cuz I gotta climb em twice each, 20 bucks and you get yourself a donation receipt for income tax purposes.

Everybody's a winner, hooray!

Brilliant! I also propose an adopt a Gondola car campaign!!!!


...... ok bad idea. Kid I'm in for 50. where do I pay?


Did you guys see Hamish Mutch's last picture on the acrophobes? Those guys weren't kidding apparently about saving squamish for when you can't get into the mountains!

So on this theme perhaps A post Pineapple Apocalypse for Humanity climbathon up angels crest? All age categories. awards for worst dressed and least prepared. JH and his SAR friends could set up hot coco stations along the ridge. Those mountain bikers get all the headlines with thier wimpy Test o' Metals and stuff so maybe its time for the rise of the dirt bag.

I'll be the weather forecaster and try to give youall a weeks notice. I'll be there all the way. I'll even give you weather updates via my blog to your I phones while on route

I'm in for the Chief Challenge, although due to my living in the city, lack of a car, and snow being top of the to-do list these days, I won't be starting till spring.
However, I will be training hard all winter, so I'm guessing that I'll be able to catch up to you lightweights pretty quick once the time comes.

I ticked the Challenge yesterday, so all you poseurs can fugetaboutit already

And just a reminder to the calendar challenged, Winter begins December 21st and ascents subsequent to that date can be described as such.

Bump for fundraising for Habitat for Humanity.

Plus who - apart from Aislinn, that is - wouldn't want to see The Kid do a winter solo ascent of the Grand Wall?

I'm definitely down with Luke doing the Grand solo. Just as long as someone brings an extra rifle I can borrow.

Hey jaaan. Truth is it probably was always trespassing, but BC rail always just let it slide. The bc government sold bc rail to CN Rail in a scandalous way..... http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/van-dongen-hires-lawyer-prominent-in-bc-rail-case-to-probe-further/article4096225/

Since then CN had been super anal about trespassing on their tracks and they aren't willing to compromise with local climbers...
