Re: General Squamish Trip Info

If you're going to camp, clean up after yourself. So long as you do that, welcome!

Re: Handjammies are cheating!

Next time I'm gonna wrap my hands & wrists with bicycle innertubes and tape before climbing split beaver.. and then tell everybody that I sent it! Next time I'm going to squeeze my self into a full body black rubber unitard. This way I could climb even the hardest Apron slabs with ease. All I'd hav...

I stand corrected. Now that I think about it, I think A$$%$#^@ of August is actually a finger crack.
Whoa .. way to rub it in, mr. multi-poster. :P

Re: Favourite pitch in Squamish - any grade - any style

if you like HMW, do slap and tickle ... similar length and style of climbing except more technical with a moderate slab traverse finish ... you can even combine it with the crux move of HMW ... its good 5.9+ climbing ... takes beautiful gear all the way, bring extra cams and nuts Thanks! I'll try t...

Re: If Squish is soft, what should get downgraded?

Sullys should be renamed Sillys .. 'cause that's what the grades are. I really enjoyed climbing there when I lived on the North Shore but the grading was WAY off. As long as grades are consistent, I don't really care .. but I think I'm going to get spanked regularly when I move down to CA next month...

Re: Favourite pitch in Squamish - any grade - any style

I'll second the vote for High Mountain Woody. Everything about this climb appeals to me. The approach is fun. The climbing is varied, casual and fun. The views are spectacular .. in fact, the entire setting is great. There is very little road noise, which is a big plus for me given that the highway ...

Re: Is Squamish Soft?

IMHO moderates can be more dangerous than harder climbs ... i find that it often means much poorer falls, and often poorer/less gear placements, and you may be running it out anyways ... Yep .. that is exactly what bit me in the a$%, actually. I was on easy terrain, not really paying attention to t...

Re: Is Squamish Soft?

Re: Is Squamish Soft?

I saw this guy posting something that I thought was inappropriate and I was going to make a scathingly sarcastic post mocking him .. then I remembered that I used to make those kinds of posts and thought I'd be the better man and just brag about how much more mature I am. (seriously, though, how man...

Re: Is Squamish Soft?

If you don't appreciate his sense of humour, fine .. but the passive aggressive digs are a bit lame.

I would have thrashed, cried, humped and aided my way up that line and I still found his post pretty damn funny.
