Re: indoor and outdoor climbing partner wanted

I was thinking outside -- probably Smoke Bluffs.

I have no idea what you mean by the fact you own an "auto belay". I've never heard of such as anything but gym equipment.

Re: indoor and outdoor climbing partner wanted

I'll be in Whistler next week -- are you still looking? Do you have gear?

week-day partner Mar 14-18

I'm going to be up at Whistler skiing for the week of March 13-19, and I plan to take a couple rest-days from skiing. I figure it's a short hop down the highway to Squamish, so if I could get in some climbing on my rest-day(s), that would be awesome. I'm an experienced trad and sport climber, both s...

Re: Area 44 Parking Closed Permanently

I was there when they were installing them -- they've installed them right at the corner of 99 and the turn-off. If you go about 100m further up the side road, there's a larger pull-off that stills seems to be fine for parking.

Re: Names of new(ish) routes at Neat and Cool (Smoke Bluffs)

The route to the left of Pink Flamingo, is called Barefoot in China. It starts at the left edge of the rock, (not the same start as pink flamingo), and jogs further left at the top. To the immediate right of pink flamingo, the wide groove climb is called Who Needs Apps. 5.8 ish. The next one to the...

Re: Names of new(ish) routes at Neat and Cool (Smoke Bluffs)

Given I have a Blackberry, the app is unlikely to work for me. (And, who knows if I'll be back to Squamish any time in the near future.) I'm just curious on the name, as I like to record the climbs I do. And a name is much better than "that un-described in my guidebook route that is left of Pink Fla...

Names of new(ish) routes at Neat and Cool (Smoke Bluffs)?

I was climbing at Smoke Bluffs last week -- at Neat and Cool. I noticed a couple routes had been cleaned on the lower section (below Cat Crack ledge) which is climbed by Pink Flamingo. One appears to start up the same dyke as Pink Flamingo, then when the dyke splits (the narrower section continues u...

Found: Scarpa shoe size 12 mens, Star Chek

I found one shoe at the base of the gorge -- off the right side (near start of Apollo 13). Scarpa size 12 US mens. Seemed relatively new. Left it perched on a boulder in the gravel pullout south of the end of the guard rail. (We had two ropes and 3 people. One 50m rap looked like a good idea, rather...
