Re: Apron Descent Hand Line Needs Replacement

I have used the rap descent off the Apron into the gulley many times. A 60m rope works absolutely perfectly well. One should ALWAYS make sure they are at the middle of their rope when they are rapping......And if they are not it is a very good practice to begin NOW.

Re: Spine boards in Squamish

Sad to hear about the fatality in Skaha. Condolences to friends and family.

I have seen NO spine boards in Squamish. It would not be a bad idea for there to be spine boards in Squam but I have a feeling they would most likely be vandalized.

Re: Sunset Strip horror show

Excellent route Colin.

Climbed it this past weekend and it is a sweet route. The pitch with the 'so-called factor two fall potential' is a non-issue. Chimney up and clip the bolt or layback to the 1st bolt......really no biggie.

Quality climb..........

Thanks for putting it up.

Would be significantly better if it was filmed from above........Fairly useless otherwise.

Good riddance to the chain and the person who may have actually placed it.......Your kind are a stain on the granite of Squamish. Stay Away!

Re: Squamish in a nutshell - A roadtrippers pov

A very interesting take on Squamish. One of the biggest mistakes that Squamish has made is having a planning department that seems to be filled with incredibly poor decision makers. Allowing the movie theaters to be built out along Hwy99 and all of the crappy box stores was both short-sighted and st...

Re: Skywalker, 5p, 5.8

I stand corrected.....I don't bother with guidebooks so did not know about this coveted top 100 rating.

When a multi-pitch climb has one good pitch and becomes a TOP 100 it means that almost every multi-pitch in Squam could be a top 100.

Re: Skywalker, 5p, 5.8

Not a hater just being realistic. So if a guidebook says so then it must be---Don't believe everything you see in print.....especially guidebooks.

Re: Skywalker, 5p, 5.8

TOP 100? How was that decision reached? Really have to love self-proclamations.

A couple years from now it will likely be overgrown and returned to the state it was originally.

Re: Rambles (4p, 5.8)

So laughable....I accept your apology....Sounds like a bunch of grade school kids......

Arguing over a couple of barely mediocre routes is a first world problem for sure.

Re: Here we go again (Squamish Gondola proposal)

If you can't get there under your own power that is why there are helicopters and paved roads into alpine areas.

Or Barley could reduce by 50% the contrived P.O.C. routes he puts up and use the money saved to be in proper anchors on the 50% of his climbs that are not contrived and worthless.....or he could just quit putting up routes at all and break even that way.
