If the weather report sticks, and it is still forecast to shower this Friday, cleaning will be taking place on the upper Oleson Creek wall. If you see yellow caution tape blocking access to the general area, do not cross it as there will be active debris fall. Update: there is but about 6-7 meters o...

Re: Wire Tap

There will lbe some spring cleaning in this area over the next week or two. If you come across caution tape or signage, best to stay clear. I'll post any changes on an updated topo.

Incidently, has anyone been up that way this season?

Cheers.

Incidentally, I am pretty sure if you fall and deck you can't get higher than a factor 1 fall. a factor 2 potential onto the belay. ...unless you can then tumble by the belayer and enjoy a part II to your fall. Either...
