Papoose Wall road cut

So I was up in Squamish for the first time in a long time. Couldn't help but notice the "new" crag bellow the Papoose. As road-cut crags go, that thing's got huge potential. Any ideas on how likely the development of this wall is? How close the crag will be to the road? Or does Highways have plans t...

I'm the guy who posted on RC.com about the boulders at Lions head. For the record I was developing a line on the wall behind the trailer park and was approached buy a trailer park resident, and was told that climbing on the land "which is private" is forbidden. For the records, about 1/3 of the lion...

Are the Valhalla routes at lower altitude? What are the classic routes there? They're at a lower altitude. The hike in will take you 3 hours. No glaciers. The classic route is The South Ridge of Gimli 5.9 III. The route and aproach faces south. Nice camping spot right at the base. http://www.rockcl...

I've climbed in the Bugaboos in Mid June. No problems, in fact the aproaches are much better becasue you've not down to the glacier ice. Stick to the south facing walls, or Cresent tower. Of course, things are different every year, and this has been a heavy snow year. If I were you, I'd check out th...

The issue is that a piece of land that contains biomass and habitat that is important to the balance of our local ecosystem. (old growth etc.). Habitat? Habitat for what? Discarded beer cans from passing cars? I admire your zeal for environmental protection, but come on. You're talking about a stri...

Aaron you're a prick... go pound sand yourself. And your a totalitarian, or a fool, I'm not sure which. I never said that the logging of the Malamute was a good thing. Now that I see the photos I see that the removal of these trees will not have any improvement on the areas climbing, unlike the log...

I doubt you would be stoked to live next to the penis house. Why? because it's an eyesore! But like Aaron said, thats totally subjective What are you talking about? I love my neighbors 12foot high penis statue. Thankfully I live in the town of Castlegar were the tolerance of such things are high. A...

:( Who did it? Isn't it owned by the railroad? It's private land owned by one individual as far as I know.......... My two cents. Owners of private land should be able to do with their land what they want. So long as what they do doesn’t come into conflict with conservation laws, or the criminal co...

Hey, thank for scrubbing out the South Arete. It's a fun rockclimb. As far as chemical cleaning agents in Squamish, their use is a time-honoured tradition. I personally do not utilize them, nor do I condone their use. Interesting, While cleaning South Arete we never used any cleaning agents but we ...

Re: see it to believe it

Environmental damage? What ever. If you want to see environmental damage you should have a look at South Arête on the Apron. Me and my friend shoveled out a ton of dirt from that crack, tore out countless plants and even uprooted a tree. All in a Provincial Park no less. If this upsets you, you don'...

Wow, looks like some decent climbing. I'm sure it's been climbed by generations of Kootenay freaks. I Have managed to unearth a 1970's guide book that details some very uninspiring gully slogs. Aren't there rusty old pins in those corner cracks? Shouldn't be too hard to find beta for stone like tha...

Lions Head Castlegar. (Matt Maddaloni?)

Hello all. I live in Castlegar and every day I stand on the banks of the Columbia River stare up at the monolith of rock that is the Lions Head. A while ago, Matt Maddaloni and company developed some amazing bouldering on the boulders found at the base of the Lions Head. For a while there was guide ...

Re: squamish pulb mill closing

It's sad to see Squamish changing so fast. It wasn't that long ago that a working family could easily buy a home in Squamish. With the cost of living what it is, it's hard to believe that if the mill would ever reopen that working families would return to the area. Welcome to Squamish, the -West Van...
