Dave's got em nailed" MCM (at Pixie Corner in the Smoke Bluffs) for sure - this is the one that stands out in my mind as the best 1st timer crack. There are some real easy (a 5.4 and 2 5.6's I think) at Fern Gully in the Bluffs, all sort of left leaning. Laughing Crack and Cat Crack definitely. Klah...

whoops, my comment was not to deter you from the sport climbing in Squamish - kind of missed that part.

As much as we'd all love to revel in the glory of our ideals of what trad climbing on undiscovered rock could/should be/once was in Squamish, the reality is that Squamish climbing is "full" already, and is only going to continue to grow at rates of 5-7% per year (if my memory serves), according to M...

The granite cracks are what is good in Squamish... the boulders are gems as well, but while you're heelhooking and rocking over, don't forget to look up, look waaaay up....

...and definitely bring a much more athletic side to the games than ping-pong!! exactly! As much as I enjoyed the Olympic curling, shouldn't being an Olympian really mean you can't podium if you're overweight and out of shape? (alright, none of the curlers were huge-o's, at least not that I saw, bu...

sure, go for it! it is a celebration of the globe, afterall. Just make sure it comes down in good time, as with the Canadian flag.

Thanks for the clarification Mark. I wasn't taking it as elitist, just supposing that some might... I get what you mean about the "user-friendly" mindset, although I can think of some areas where it might be valuable.

respect your opinion marc; you may well be an all-around leader in the sport one day (been following your exploits on CC.com - nice work and progression young lad!) but let's remember that a lot of climbers have been climbing much longer than you, and will likely never climb as hard as you do alread...
