Well, I wanted to say something overwhelmingly complimentary, but find it has been said, in spades. Right on.

Anders - will you be back in BC soon? I'll be passing through YVR Mar. 6, and maybe we won't miss this time. Sounds like a great gang down there in the deep south of BC and I'd love to meet y'all.

Thanks for starting this thread, Jennie. And nice doggerel, Jan!

Don't know if it was previously mentioned, but there would be no Canadian Access structure if not for Anders. He devoted a considerable part of his life to the establishment and continued success of the Access Society of BC , which is the framework for climbing stewardship in Canada.

Few of us would have sacrificed so much for so little personal gain, and suffer the abuse of every pundit who had an axe to grind. Hats off Dude!

How is your massive compilation on the History of Rock Climbing in Squamish coming along? That will be an amazing coffee table book, but with your attention to detail, it may actually be large enough to serve as the table.

Anders, my favorite Norwegian, Canadian. You need to come see us in Ballard before it becomes too gentrified. Hope all is well with you!

Hey! Anders hope you make it back here on ST; wish Lolli would do the same but can understand why we US Americans like Werner said stupid and we are.
Most likely less than 10% actually have a clue about anything here. Climbing an exception.

But need that "looking from the outside in" to get any intelligent thoughts that both of you did and can contribute to make any sense why the US is going downhill. I know, you know just need more.

Bumping. Anders is a really cool dood. He gets along with the tokers, drinkers, Colorado prancers, Yos dorks, Squamish fools and even me

He has contributed a lot to the community and even though I have only met him a couple of times, he is a good friend.

I don't know how I missed this thread the first time around, but I did. Anders has contributed A LOT to the local hiking and mountaineering community. He was made an Honourary Member of the B.C. Mountaineering Club in 1989, at some ridiculously young age (and after serving as President for a couple of years, too). And he still gives back to the club.

And he's a very, very nice person, and a good friend. Even our dog likes him, which is high praise....

I only crossed paths with this true gentleman a few times during my years in Squamish, but like everyone else I'm grateful for his work with the Access Society and other important work with the community. However, nobody has mentioned his wonderful Squamish in the 70s thread! I came across just as I moved to BC and really help me get a feel for the history of the place and to understand the unique community (and Morals and Ethics Committee) that was establish there. Thanks, MH.

I hope Anders is doing okay.
Never had the pleasure to meet him, but I sure would've
been privileged to.
