Re: Mank Patrol

At the Black Zawn, the first 2 pins on The Crucifix are in terrible shape (rusted/corroded). Not sure if Kevin McClane frequents this forum, but I would be interested in his thoughts on replacing the 3 pins on this route and also the one on Black Flag. IMO, the first pin of the Crucifix should be re...

Re: Movin' to Montana cleaned up and ready for action

Climbed this route on Sunday and wanted to pass along my thanks for its refurbishment. It is currently in excellent shape, with just a small amount of seepage that can mostly be avoided. For what its worth, I though the first pitch (2nd if you count Commando) was 11a...to me it seemed harder than th...

Re: Ghostdancing

Rolf - I don't know that 'people don't climb slabs anymore'. There is certainly a group of climbers in Squamish seeking out hard slab routes. BTW, I was being facetious when I said it would 'sanitize the adventure'. I enjoy (and respect) runout slab climbs as much as anyone and would never suggest r...

Re: Ghostdancing

Climbed Ghostdancing p1 and Arthroscopy p2 yesterday, and although dirty they were both free climbable as long as you didn't mind cleaning hand/foot holds first. The top of both p2 and p3 of Ghostdancing were pretty overgrown and would have been very difficult to ascend. Kneewrecker also looked very...

Re: Teetering on the Brink of Madness

There was a post on MountainProject from 2013 that indicated the route is mossy - has anyone been up there since? Also, I'm curious how much of a step up this climb is from Dancing in the Light? Judging from the earlier posts it seems that the 5.9/10- runouts are similar, but I'm guessing there is m...

La Sportiva Mix size 44.5 ($40)

I bought these shoes online but they fit small so are a bit too tight for me. If you have a size 10 foot they'd be perfect. They are a great approach shoe and basically brand new. $40

Re: New perma-dry route(s), Halfway House, Rogues Gallery

I climbed the new 'no-name' route yesterday and would suggest 11a - the traverse is pretty tricky.
Also, I pulled a sizable chunk of rock off at the last bolt but thankfully the traversing nature of the route meant that belayer didn't get conked.

Re: New Life approach

Thanks BK. We climbed New Life on Sunday and approached from the NN Gully trail - the start is signed and it is very easy to follow. We walked out across the new talus field and the amount of destruction is impressive. As you noted, AK highway looks unaffected except for maybe a bit a messing around...

New Life approach

Wondering if anyone has been up to New Life since the rock fall?

I have always approached via the bottom of AC, but curious if it is now better to go straight up from the Mamquam FSR

Re: Falcon Closure - Angels Crest

Does anyone know if the Borderline-AC linkup is considered part of the closure? Borderline hits AC around p6 (10a groove) so not sure if that is far enough away from the falcons.

Knacker Cracker start

Not sure if this information has previously been posted here, but I noticed that the initial flake on Knacker Cracker has come off. This makes the start pretty much un-protectable (you used to be able to wiggle in a small nut while standing on the boulder). It might be a good candidate for (gasp) a ...

Arcteryx R300 harness - mens large

I bought this harness in the Spring but the waist is too big for me so I replaced it with a medium. Great harness (super comfortable and light weight) in excellent shape (about 40 pitches).

$70

Re: plum pudding

Climbed this line on the way down from Chewbacca. Many thanks to those involved in the cleanup and bolting - its a really nice addition to the area. I climbed the direct (bolted) start and placed a .5 and .75 in addition to the bolts. The climb is well protected and has some cool, technical moves. I...

Re: Chebacca's 5.10b 3p at Shannon Falls

I did this route last week and concur with the other posters - it's an really good climb with a couple of excellent pitches. Yet another new 4-star 5.10 route! p1: Some easier climbing leads to a short steep finger/hand crack. p2: Grind up the wide flare with excellent pro in the back of the crack. ...
