Re: New Route by Glenn Woloski - Fog Ducker Spire

I managed to free climb the Free Dimensional pitch today after several trips up Fog Ducker Spire.
Fingers to RP's, runout in the crux, .13+.
It's amazing. Go climb it.
Respect is due to Glenn for the vision and hard work involved with opening this area.

Re: Grand Wall Bouldering Co-op 2015-2016

Just wanted to bump this thread for the Co-op.

We built the Co-op 8 years ago and have been working hard to keep people climbing ever since. Come out and show your support.

DJ Earthwoman is confirmed for the party so you know its going to get rowdy.

Re: Logging planned above Squaw/ Olson creek

I can speak for the Squamish Access Society on this matter.

Re: 12 new Bolts left of the pillar

Yep.
I spoke with Jason Kruk who is working as a rigger for the Aeriosa dance company of Vancouver. He stated that they would be shooting tomorrow and would remove the bolts when they were done. He assured me that they were practicing a "leave no trace" rigging policy.
