Re: Any word on falcon closures yet?

That would be a GOPro video that would be worth watching.. "Climber grunting and clawing up the route, reaches up to flat ledge where nests is..." BANG! Raven attack!!! (close up of beak and black feathers hitting GoPro cam...)

Re: Any word on falcon closures yet?

Ravens stupid? the ones with the largest brain when compared to other birds? The same family that makes tools to use? They are smarter than a lot of climbers i"ve met.

Bouldering is a safer bet as when the weather breaks they tend to dry faster. Right now the highs are 9c which is ...

Re: Cougar Crag?

Slayer and I with a friend stopped by after climbing in Squamish to escape the heat. We got on several of the routes and had a blast. One of us decided to try wading in the stream with shoes and socks on :) Really good quality climbing on the 11 and the 12, the 10d is a little funky. Nice find guys!...

Hard 11d (harder than the Pleasure...

I was up there hiking about 9 days ago and the water was higher than the last time (i'm thinking due to snow melt)

Re: Cougar Crag?

I wandered in there this afternoon to have a look. Cool looking cliff Rolf, still seeping in a few spots and lowering off the routes would result in the climber paddling lol. Once the water drops off i'll be back. Thanks for all the hard work!
