I watched it happen. He was spinning out of control and then slammed into the wall/tree. If he had hit 40' lower he'd be dead - as there was nothing but slab below the tree.

Lucky guy (and the guy two weeks ago)... last I checked BASE jumpers normally don't get second chances.

UBD

Great stuff! Just climbed it after finishing the Grand Wall. The rock quality seemed pretty solid, a few creakers but nothing too bad. Nice job with the bolting - it seemed perfect. Any more bolts and it would take away from the experience IMO. The pitches were surprisingly long. I didn't look at th...

Games Idiots Play and/or Godforsaken Land

Anyone climb Games Idiots Play or Godforsaken Land on the Squaw?

The guidebooks both make them sound good, but I've never heard of anyone doing them.

Good routes? I've done the Great Game and Birds of Prey so I'm looking for something different.

Are you interested in Angels Crest on Sunday the 2nd? We can mix it up and look at Boderline into Angels Crest or see how we are feeling for High Plains Drifter exit. Possibly, depends if my wife mends enough by then. I've done Borderline and Angel's Crest.... though never combined then. Let's keep...

Partner in Squamish through 8/8?

My wife and I are here for two weeks until 8/8, but she got injured hiking down from the Grand Wall base area on Monday. Nasty gash w/ stiches. She is probably out for at least 5-7 days. I'm looking for partners if anyone is interested. Solid 5.10+ trad leader with plenty of experience, gear, and mo...
