TR: Solar System 7p (10a, A0)

Express trip report: Solar System 7p (10a, A0) -parked at the gate on shannon cr FSR, then biked to the turnoff for S...

Re: Habrich - Life on Earth - Conditions?

I went up sky pilot on saturday and parked behind the locked gate at roughly 9km. The road crew was working that morning and the gate was still locked at the end of the day.

I think it's still worth pushing/riding a bike to the fire ring at the Habrich turnoff if the gate is locked.

Re: Wasp nest and sketchy tree at the Squawlharny

I got zapped 2x on the way in to Keith's hut & once again on the way back to the car. Angry little buggers they are.

Anyone have any tips on how to spot 'em before you get stung? Maybe they just have a hate-on for smelly-a$$ climbers?

Re: Chebacca's 5.10b 3p at Shannon Falls

awesome. rad. fun. I had a great time on this yesterday after work.
P3 & the chill ledge up top is a great place to watch the evening light in squamish (and the thunderstorm rolling in from the N).

the walk-off is in pretty good shape from all the traffic coming down from Skywalker.

Re: New Route by Glenn Woloski - Fog Ducker Spire

Climbed this on Saturday afternoon with Mike in 4p. Great route! All of it was in the shade, except for the climbing on the last pitch. Looking for shade on a hot day? Climb both Photophobia & Fog Ducker. The last pitch of Fog Ducker Spire is interesting: Mike ended up traversing right into the L-fa...

Re: Squamish's stiffest routes...

There's a 10a pitch that starts below Quagmire Crack. I don't have the guide book in front of me, but I think it gets 3 stars. All I got from it was super-pumped (making Quagmire feel extra sustained).

possibly the hardest 10a i've ever suffered through around here.

Re: Request for input: SAS re-bolting Phase 3

The shackles connecting the chains to the hangers on exasperator have some good notches in 'em. Not sure if this is galvanic or mechanical (or both?). Not a crisis, but not hard to swap-out either.

Re: Bullethead East (4p, 10c) & Rainy Day Woman (4p, 11b)

Climbed this on Sunday (after some rain on Saturday). Very nice - and overall seemed to dry quick. P1 was mostly dry P2 (mini roof) was dry P3 (finger crack) was dry P4 (finger/hand) was very wet for the hands in the bottom of the corner, but the feet were dry. I think the LH option on P4 was dry.

Re: Slesse: bypass glacier condition ?

I was up there on Sat & crossed the Bypass glacier to get to the 5.fun ramp.

Needless to say, it took way longer to cross over/under the pocket glacier than we were expecting.

Re: Slesse: bypass glacier condition ?

Anyone have any beta on the condition of the bypass glacier on Slesse recently? I'm thinking of heading up there this weekend.

Found: Glasses (base of Diedre)

I found a pair of glasses near the base of Diedre, hanging on a tree. Black rectangular frames. I have no idea how long they were there, but they seem to be in good shape still.

PM me & we'll sort out a way to get 'em back to you.
