Wiretap Spring Cleaned and Ready to Go

Wiretap Spring Cleaned and Ready to Go. Last weekend Jer and I reclimbed the first pitch of Wiretap. Good, interesting climbing, and a different perspective of Squamish. Anyway, some updates… 1) “Spring cleaned” Hearsay and pitch one of Wiretap. 2) Upgraded the anchor for Rumble in the Jungle. 3) Ev...

I think you are talking about the Green River Bastion, which i believe is just off the highway, behind the forest bouldering. It is in the Whistler Rockclimbs guide book.

And I can't believe nobody has mentioned Deidre 5.8 or Sickle 5.8 on the Apron I don't think that classic, popular, multi-pitch routes are the best place for people to learn to lead climb cracks. Better to spend time mastering techniques where one is less committed, and not libel to cause a traffic...

Spring clean

Dave, thanks for fixing the topo link. The Wiretap area is north facing so I can't imagine things are dry enough to climb there yet, however, since the season is not too far away, I hope to do a bit of a spring clean on it in a few weeks time. Also, expect a updated topo, as the rap route will likel...

Yeah the pressure washer could work but I wonder if the crag is above the water intake for the chief campground. If so then the pressure washer could wash sediment into the creek contaminating the campground water supply and filtration system. Which would be bad. It was just an idea anyway. Smallma...

I guess i was mistaken. Just what I'd heard. Regardless, it would have been great to have that hanger there. When I climbed it last year I used a wired nut to "necktie" the bolt which I am never to thrilled about.

I liked the old system: it had justice.

You self-registered and they left you to you own devices.
You didn't register, you got an early morning wake up call to pay-up.

1) They charged me 10 for two people at Squamish 2) Usually this is not an issue. Unless you are loud obnoxious drunk and unruly, they typically let you stay as long as you like. That said, the demand on the Campground seems to be more than ever before. Previously they seemed to be happy to have any...
