I heard that grass was planted on the ledges of grubb street during it's recent re-cleaning to hold the dirt on the ledges together. I think for europa this would be hopeless, although the idea is great. There are a few solid sections but much of this climb is more chossy from the cleaning than it w...

I think that "rotten c*ck sandwich" would make a great route name. Instant classic!!

Great cleanup, climbed this one awhile ago. It makes a fine alternative to diedre or BP @ around the same difficulty but maybe more technical and with more variety as it requires you to focus on your footwork while the crack traverse and elephant steps are just fun easy features to climb. It is easy...

My fav's samall cams 1. Aliens (RIP) Yellow Alien is the best squamish cam IMO 2. C3's just getting used to these, they seem wierd @ first but once you start figuring them out they fit in places no other cam will. Red and Green seem really useful with our thin cracks. These cams seem well constructe...

The chopper is definitely back, and Robin is not the only target, bolts @ the top of wonderland are gone too and i don't even think that barley put them in (it was a normal anchor). i guess We'll see if the great one can get the staples out. 25% seems like a lot for a dude who puts as many bolt in a...

People with authority to send up there (some random ideas): Kevin McLane and Jeremy Frimer on a combined peace-keeping mission Tami Knight in one of her 80's outfits ... i will second that notion, they should probably ride horses too. :mrgreen: camping at the malamute will be forever banished..... ...

It would be pretty ridiculous if climbers were responsible for creating a law which had the potential to self-sabatoge route cleaning. This wouldn't be a new law, it would be an extension of an existing law that already protects area and objects of cultural significance. Unless I'm mistaken, under ...

It would be pretty ridiculous if climbers were responsible for creating a law which had the potential to self-sabatoge route cleaning. This is really sad. Milk run is a classic croft route which now joins with crescent ramp, one of the older routes on that part of the chief, and now it goes to the t...

I prefer to avoid the whole issue by either making sure I'm first on the route or there are options for switching routes higher up. If one wants to climb AC without the hassle of passing then get there *early*. ----- I'll have to disagree with Cloudraker that passing is a non-issue. I'd suggest tha...

Re: squamish bouldering guide

Apparently McLane is hard at work on a new 2-vol. comprehensive. there's a sh*t-ton of new routes to go in it, plus there are areas not in the last edition (cap canyon, that slab area near brittania, etc) going in. so it sounds like the new route guide wont be as cool as the new boulder guide :lol:...
