Re: Seeking advice for first climb in Squamish

Hello Regitze:

Buy or borrow a copy of the Squamish climbing guide books (both Kevin McLane and Marc Bourdon have published books). We have had unusually dry, sunny weather this October, so you might be in luck.

Enjoy,
Natsdad

Found: Chalk Bag, North Apron June 27

Did you drop or forget a chalk bag while climbing 'Long Time No See' last week? Or maybe you were on 'Calculus Crack' and your chalk bag came off and landed at a belay ledge of 'Long Time No See'? If so, I have it and am happy to return it. Please identify the chalk bag via PM and we'll arrange to g...

Re: New sport cliff

Thanks, Tegan. Another fine crag you have offered the community! :)

We climbed a few routes the other day and enjoyed them very much.

Re: Partial opening of new North Apron route

I climbed the last two pitches (above Broadway Ledge) of "Long Time, No See" the other day (after doing Calculus Crack), and have to say that they are great, particularly that last pitch: it has technical, interesting climbing with just enough gear opportunities. :D Having done the full route (climb...

Re: High Cliff freshly scrubbed

Thanks for the clean up. My friend and I climbed "The Gift" yesterday and it was really fun and clean. A very nice moderate - felt stiff for 5.6 :)

Re: Harvey - Pup Buttress

Just climbed the Pup a couple of days ago. There is a pin on the first pitch (in good shape, too) - but you cannot see it from the ground (or at least, I couldn't). It is in the "obvious" horizontal break that you traverse to the first belay and I happily clipped it. We encountered lots of poor qual...

Re: Easy 5.10?

Hi, Are you looking for gear leads or sport? For gear, I find Split Decision at Shannon Falls, a soft 5.10A (and so is EPB, if you don't mind the lineups involved with pitches 1 & 2 of Skywalker). Out to Lunge (bluffs), Flying Circus (bluffs) and Fist (Murrin) also come to mind as being soft for the...

Re: lower apron - next to "Rambles"

Hey Folks: As I climbed Rambles a couple of days ago, I noticed that the new climb that is just a couple of metres south of it had many bolts, stations and two fixed lines (one red hanging from a large tree, another blue hanging from the final station) hanging on it. It sort of looks ready to go...b...
