Re: Where are people climbing this weekend?

I did in my back on Thurs, so I'll be climbing on and off the couch this weekend. Maybe be able to get to Squamish on Tue when y'all are back to work.

Re: Crack Be Nimble, 12a, Recleaned with new station.

Phhh... Fawcett can't climb 5.12. Dan "The Man" Canton and I had to haul his a$$ up Ultimate Everything a few years back. Fawcett stopped and took a crap at almost every ledge.
