So no heel hook for the first eight moves... That'll change the characteristic of that route.

One more thing: "Enhancing routes is nearsighted and does not take into consideration the abilities of future, stronger climbers" and yet it is o.k. to climb and bolt new routes in an area that is officially closed thereby threatening any chance for access by all future (strong and weak) climbers. ...

I'm still waiting for someone to do "Airtest" at Skaha without any of the drilled pockets. Stretch? I don't think this route would go without the drilled pockets and is a fine example of a route that perhaps just shouldn't "go". If you need to drill four "jugs" in a row that are visible from 20m be...

Sate...

If I go and do Sate without the pocket can I fill it in? :) Since the original post was about a certain veteran route developer, who has previously chipped, complaining about chipping let me say this; I too have previously chipped, but I no longer believe the ethics of the day allow for or require c...

I thought it was harder than Sudden Impact and FunkyTown (as long as you grab the good holds not the chalked ones), but I have a hard time grading routes with short crux sections.

Finally got to Forgotten Wall

Start about 8' below gibb's cave on the two incut crimpers, go to the arete, bump again to the crimp (I guess you could call it that) and throw to the start of gibb's cave.

Good luck.

Black water (12a) on pet wall is the best sport 12a in the corridor.
I really like practical horseman (12d or 13a) on the circus wall at chek just for the crux at the top.

It doesn't make me shake my head. Squamish is great for bouldering and incredible for trad climbing but for sport climbing... The hard sport climbing in squamish just isn't fun. No one would make squamish a sport climbing destination. Bouldering yes, trad climbing of course but sport climbing no. Pe...
