Good Memories to Be Grateful For -

Had a great day last Sunday climbing with my son Holden. Nothing too adventurous, just some top-roping at Call it a Day but memorable all the same. It’s days like these that make the stress of everyday living fade away. Walking to the Crag https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-XaAy-Nr8Vl0/U4wcW9saeoI/A...

Re: New Updated Bouldering Guide Coming Soon

Still at the printers I believe. But there are enough problems in the old guide to keep you busy for years, so if you don't have that one already you should pick it up in Squamish.

Awesome sh*t - at the Smoke Bluffs

Smoke Bluffs Park is getting a vermicomposting toilet. These outhouses are supposed to be odourless and enviro friendly. If you have had the unfortunate need to use the current porta potty, this is a huge improvement. Thanks to MEC , Toilet Tech Solutions and the District of Squamish for funding thi...

Re: Wrinkle Rock. Gondola crags

Jeremy Frimmer started a thread last year about new routes at Ultraviolet crag here
Note: approach has changed since the gondola opened. Route information, names and grades could also be different since Jeremy's post.

Squamish is the Bomb

So I was surfing the web the other day for images of climbing in Squamish -- there is a lot of new, superb content out there btw -- and came across this portfolio by Jen Randall and Alex Gorham. The lighting and composition really stand out. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised these are the filmmakers ...

Arcteryx Hidden Chalk Bag - scavenger hunt

Did anybody find the hidden chalk bag containing a $200 gift certificate for Arcteryx? In case you hadn’t heard about this, Arcteryx is opening up a new store in Whistler on June 7. To promote the opening they are running a scavenger hunt contest over three consecutive weekends -- May 17/18, May 24/...

Re: Wrinkle Rock. Gondola crags

Very cool Aaron thanks for posting. Nice way to include your daughter in your adventure. How long before you will be roping up with her on this? This crag looks super, with a bit of slab and a bit of crack. How many more routes are on this rock? The Sea to Sky Gondola has posted a nice page on their...

Throwback Thursdays - Squamish Climbing BITD

Thought I would start a little social media meme here by initiating a thread of historical and nostalgic photos of Squamish Climbing. A ways back Squamish climbing old schooler, Glenn Woodsworth sent me some photos of climbing in Squamish in the 1960s. Here are a couple of them: First Ascent of Pipe...
