witch's tooth - Dione

Does anyone know the grade or route to get on top of the actual witch's tooth between Dionne and Tantalus? Saw some slings hanging off the top of it while walking past on the Tantalus Traverse this summer.

Re: Slhany (sic?) - right wing

I'm living in Canmore now, so the commute to work would be a tad lengthy I reckon. But I'll put in on the backburner, could be a great start to the route. Stoked that Right Wing was one the few granite routes I got on this season....thanks for the hard work on it!

Re: Simul Rapping

Pulling the lines/resetting for the next rap seems to be the most time consuming part and if your partner is alre...

Re: Slhany (sic?) - right wing

Climbed this beauty yesterday. Wow, what a climb!! Living back in the Rockies now, it was a real treat to dive right back into some fierce granite corners. The intimidating discussion on here like "grunting like a pregnant rhino", "see stars and puke", "seriously that pitch is f$^%ked up" and "beat ...

Re: Simul Rapping

I used to simul rap every so often. But after two folks plummeted 100m to their deaths this August in Heart Creek doing so this year I said to myself why bother. Id rather just go slower and rap in the dark if necessary, whats the rush....

Re: Here we go again (Squamish Gondola proposal)

Does it say anywhere if this will be open during the winter/spring months? For ski touring access?

Re: Right Wing - bolts are back

Looks awesome, can't wait to try it and get a potential beat down in the long corner. Does this one take a little longer to dry? This week?

Re: Slab left of Laughing Crack?

hmmm, lotsa +'s needed indeed. We tried this one evening and then climbed Whirlwind the next day. By comparison, Whirlwind was waaaay easier.
