Nice one rolfr, good on ya bolting a crack for Mike. Now maybe he won't have to keep lugging a rack around Skaha, or maybe he'll chop it & keep it trad :-)

Intresting auction item there Rolfy.

Cool idea!

I have yet to hear back from philo about the cartoon I purchased. I've email him my address and told him I would cover shipping if he'd like.

But no reply. Strange.

Only one or two spots to place gear, the rest needs fixed pro, but the winning bid can remove or add anything. I overdrilled the bolt holes so the bolts can be hammered in and filled.

Wow!! Too cool!! Thanks Rolf!! And the fa? Wow! I'll need someone to lead it for me if we're gonna snag it soon. Shh don't tell Henry Barber about it ;)

Luke i'm sure Philo has been busy and forgot or something. What's up Philo? I'll send him a PM too.

As to me not lugging a rack around skaha i won't be leading for a bit so it'll be up to my leader to choose what we're climbing... I know that the gear in that crack must be crappy if Rolf put bolts beside it...

That's an awesome idea Rolf, what cliff is it on? First there was over-protecting then there was over-bolting and now your engaging in over-drilling,it's hard to believe!

Harry, don't forget, over-promoting.

I already got crap from the parks supervisor for posting an ad on the bulletin board. I understand the desire to help out a fellow climber who has been injured,commercial use of a park (such as the sale of a first ascent) is prohibited without a park use permit.

Luckily the climb is outside the park at Shady Lane. http://www.skaha.org/documents/Shady_Lane_Mar23_2013.pdf

Considering the crap I got, there can only be one obvious use for a permit!

Luke, I sent 'toons out quite a while ago. The Post Office made me go through a special process because yours was being sent to Canada. I have the receipt here somewhere and will look for it for tracking.


Luke i'm sure Philo has been busy and forgot or something. What's up Philo? I'll send him a PM too.


Sorry to have dropped off the radar but to put it mildly some things have gone "off the wire".

It takes quite awhile to get mail from the states these days. I took ekat's card almost two months to get here! She's only 12-14 hours away!

Philo. Hope you are doing ok buddy!

Good luck with your recovery...

Mail service between US and Canada can be painful. Last year I sent my US taxes to the IRS from Vancouver and it took 10 weeks to get to Texas. Good thing I did not owe any cash. I now drive across the border if I need to send anything via snail mail.
