Hard to reconcile that photo with what you were posting just a day ago.

Southwestern BC is an amazing place.

Tied up for the send on the Rock Of Ages, Beagle Channel.
Got a pic of the anchors somewhere. This water would make that
water in the Salish Sea seem toasty.

Great to see the additions, folks.

This is a good time of year on the traverse, though perhaps an equally good time of year on Fluffy Kitten.

My most recent visit on 20 Nov






A few days later I saw dolphins from the shore for the second time.This time I had a camera though the lens was the one that had taken a 40-footer on Squamish Buttress.

Heading for Vancouver




Me traversing in a no traversing zone




The dolphins heading back out.
There were more than one this time.






December 31 was just right. As I left the house it felt way too cold, but when you got into the sun the rock was warm. This was not THE traverse but nearby. Another Squamish old timer was enjoying the rock too.

That we are related to those wonderful sea creatures is rather delightful when you think about it.

Plenty of seacliff climbing in Norway I would think.

There are days when the sea doesn't shine. But who cares?

I made my first traverse of 2016 this evening. Someone else had been there, too, either earlier today or perhaps yesterday. Seeing the chalk improved my morale, although going south to north I did not notice it until about half-way, just past the crux. Whoever it was took a couple harder variants, so it could have been Sean. We've had a couple of dry days but recent rains were still draining down parts of the rock. The sun was weak when I was there but the rock was warm.

The Caulfeild Sea Cliffs

It's a good year for the apple tree.





Evening is a good time to visit.







You can make new friends but it may take time. This crew was stand-offish on the first encounter but waved at me on the second pass.








And after the sun goes down

Today began with clouds and rain but it cleared in the afternoon.

The evening was silvery rather than golden, but the traverse was almost all dry.

The man on the water appeared again.

He was headed away but turned around and came toward me. I thought he just wanted to say hi, but he had become concerned that I might be stranded.

So the question of SUP versus God incarnate is probably answered. The day held other questions, though.

In terms of climbing, it seems that back in the 1980s I was one of the early explorers of the British Virgin Islands. I took my wife (now ex-wife) to Virgin Gorda specifically to go bouldering. I had dislocated my left shoulder in a ski mountaineering accident just a few weeks before the trip, so unfortunately I wasn't in peak climbing shape at the time.
