Vancouver

Do you know when the tour is coming to Vancouver?
Squamish is not even on the calendar from their website.

If you want to place as much gear as possible, you only need doubles for SMALL cams (blue-red TCUs or aliens), up to green camalot. #1-3 camalots are rarely placed. The route takes nuts very well and the stations are bolted, so you really don't need doubles at all unless you want to place one piece ...

easy peasy

trust me, it doesn't get easier than Diedre, and it takes gear really well, and it is not scary at all. I have not heard of anybody bailing on the route. The most difficult thing might be finding your way from the parking lot and spotting the beginning if you have never been there. About the helmet,...

don't get it

I don't understand why people make such a big deal about the fixed ropes. If you enjoy scrambling down without them, simply ignore them! It is very selfish to think that because you don't need them nobody else should. Someone put money and time into placing them for the safety of others. Moreover, p...

nice!

I'm happy to hear that someone put those fixed lines! Yes, it was easy scrambling, but better safe than sorry, and if you don't like it, just don't use it! Now I can wear my sandals after topping up on the apron and not worry too much for the descent.
Good job!

no problem with me

I had no problem reading the topo. I downloaded it both on windows and linux and both readers recognized the font no problem.

damn

Damn, I wish I had read Marty's post yesterday, we went today looking for this place and took exactly the road Marty first took and got to the falls and couldn't find the climbs, then we found a trail in the woods (marked in pink and orange tape) and followed it for ~20 minutes and couldn't find any...

just wake up earlier

As mentioned before, if you want to avoid the crowd, especially big groups, just use an alarm clock. Don't expect to have an easy fast way on easy routes on the apron on a weekend if you don't arrive there super early. And, there's nothing wrong with trios. It is just as if you had encountered two g...

maybe remove it?

Are you talking about the big flake left from Corn Flakes? If so, somebody should inspect it, and if deemed unstable, remove it. If that thing falls while there are people on the ground it could seriously injure somebody!
