I did the NN Arete a few years ago. At the time the crux pitch felt like hard 9-10a but I wasn't the strongest or most experienced climber at the time. I definitely wouldn't put it at less than 9. It is a fun route for what it is. The climbing is pretty crappy up until the last couple of pitches. It...

Power yoga and Bikrams always seemed to me like a good way to get injured.

I have been tempted by more conventional yoga lately. The knots are starting to outnumber the muscles.

Buttress, Ultimate Everything, Upper Echelon, Rock On, Jungle Warfare, and another kick at the Grand Wall. Nothing really special in that list but hey, I'm still cutting my teeth. :lol:

Star Chek (.9 sport 3 or 4 pitches) in Chekamous Canyon and Charlotte's Web (.9 sport 2 pitches) in Chek are good starters as well. I haven't done Stairway to Heaven (.10b sport) but if you're comfortable on something somewhat run out (according to my friends) then give it a go. If you mix and match...

Welcome back. I may have to give ice climbing a try this year. I'm afraid I'll like it though.

I've been studying Baldwin's book and have heard rumors that Matt Gunn is coming out with a new one soon. It's hard to discern the worthwhile trips though so I thought I'd see where the locals like to go. I was up the Roe Cr FSR last weekend near Cypress Pk and had a blast. Good coverage but the cre...

That's pushing it. As I understand it a for a flash the climber can use all information available including inspecting holds and talking to other climbers but can't try any of the moves. Even simulated moves can train the muscle memory needed for technical moves. How about counting the number of tri...

Backcountry skiing

I've managed to piece together an AT setup and am looking forward to some backcountry skiing around here (I've done a bit in Roger's Pass and around Whitewater). Where do you guys go to earn your turns?

I guess PAW won't be getting an 'I Love Wet Crack' T-shirt. :wink: Maybe it has been raining a lot on weekends. I saw the forecast this week and worked through the weekend so I could take Monday off for some climbing in the Bluffs. Lots of wet cracks to be had but at least the weather was nice. I'm ...

The shoulder season is always a problem. It's raining but not really snowing. At least in the winter when it's raining you know there will be freshies somewhere and when it's sunny and dry you can go out climbing. I shake my fist at the fall. Spring is much easier to handle.

I've lurked here for a while and it seems like a small well behaved community (unlike Gripped :roll:). The conveniences of editing, to me, outweighs the need to police content. It can always be reverted if it becomes a problem.
