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.
* Cliffhanger and The Hive are climbing gyms in Vancouver.
The larger event, of which Luke's effort is a part:
Sat, Dec 8th, The Vancouver Rock Climbing Group and Cliffhanger Vancouver present:
Christmas Climbing Marathon and Fundraiser!
Theme: Superheros to save humanity!
*Dress up and increase your sending power!*
How it works?
You set a climbing goal (ANYTHING! Be creative!). Ask your friend to sponsor you. Track your donations with the admission ticket below. Admissions for climbers waived for $30 min. raised. Donate online @ www.vrcg.ca/santa now! *Free entry for belayers.

This is our annual charity project for climbers to use their climbing skills to benefit the world!
*Remember to make your costume climbing appropriate: no sharp objects or long dangly bits.
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!
"You know how I feel about the homeless. They are people, and they don't have homes"
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.
