With all the Boring shizz about, we need a bump...

Okay, how 'bout proof that it wasn't just Greg that was into the tea-cozy-on-the-head thing on that trip?


This'll be the last shot from that adventure until I've got time to get the scanner going again, though.

Canadian climbers donning underwear as part of their unregulated quest to gain any advantage or pluck any epic first ascents is entirely a post-modernist deviant thing! Tears are not enough!

Real Canadian climbers don't wear underwear and we only have to go to pg. 318 of Chic Scott's "Pushing the Limits" to expose this and other salient facts. Dave Jones proved up a few surprises in his locker and he is rather famous for his 1972 Root on the Ohno Wall of Mount Moby Dick!
Such sends begin at lower "elevations" and the proof is on 390 of said bible, which shows Andy Genereux in appropriate training.

There is much unwritten history still to be verified here and not all to be found in Tami's future Squamish bestseller "1001 Squamish Knights"!

"Jenna Jameson Loves Her ACMGs" could be a future feature in all the best
Holiday Inns across the continent before long.

Whoa! Ed resurrects the Canadian underwear thread. And here we thought it was just your hair that was kinky...

Maybe I should dig around in the old photo boxes again and see if there's anything more to feed your need.

It was that moustache and killer aid technique shot that brought about the quest...What IS going on underneath...Inquiring minds want to know?!?

I've Canadian relatives so I can assure you this thread has been one big
soft-pedal job straight from the Mormon playbook. I suspect the Momos make
the Canadians' undies. The rels won't come clean though.

Bump for this fabulously written red underwear thread, some of the best and funniest writing anywhere on the Taco. Reading it just has me in stitches, and lawd but do we need a good laff these daze.

I remember Serl stripped down to his Y-fronts once on a hot Plan B hike up McGuire and then we met a local church group hiking down as we were headed up.

Mike Church in his skivvies, having just hiked out of the Bugs in August 1997 in the rain. I recall being similarly dressed.

A nice Canadian family had driven all that way, had one look at us from their car and drove off...

I've heard that they wear special long underwear in northwest BC, especially Atlin. Perhaps Wayne can enlighten us?

Damn! Thanks for resurrecting this bit of Canadian mountaineering history. Reminds me of why I'll be moving back north across the 49th Parallel next year.

And once I'm across, I hope the Wall does get built -- we don't need you Americans coming up, taking illegal residence, and trying to get into our underwear...

More importantly, on re-reading this thing, I see that one of the photos I posted was from PhotoF*#kit, and is now lost, so I'll take the opportunity to re-post it.

This is Tami in the front, somehow, after a week in the alpine wild, dressed up in fabulous red unders.

Are they _my_ red unders? If so, how did she wind up in them?

Just another Canadian Climbing Mystery.

I thought those were _my_ unders...

Sadly David those aren' t yours nor are they underwear.
That was a FABULOUS pair of Helly-Hansen red fleece trousers.

I used 'em as p.j.s when I was out treeplanting. Nothing like hauling one's self into those after a day on the cutblock.

Mystery solved.
