Re: Driving time

I do it by driving to Seattle, then down along I think I-90 to the bottom of Idaho, and then down through Nevada on a backroad. I think this is the shortest way in kilometers (I have looked on mapquest). I think it is about 2100 km, or two 11 hour days. If you do this in the winter, you can dirtbag ...

I was up there once and met this guy who was walking up with a harness, two ropes and an about 30 foot pole with a hook on the end. He'd just done it the day before and his second had dropped both Big Bros into the back of it so he was going to fish for them.

Some of the most inspired climbing I've done is on routes that I shouldn't have been on according to your proposed guideline. I'm going back to my original statement that if you start up Angel's Crest knowing that there's a party ahead of you, then be prepared to wait while they do their thing. The...

the Pillar stunk like this in '03 when it also didn't rain for 2.5 months. Also why would you do chimney moves on the top of the Pillar when you can do two 5.8 layback moves and be done with it? The Pillar is my pet peeve: somebody goes up "just to the top of the Pillar" with their boyfriend/girlfri...

Going to Cuba? Take some gear with you!

Folks-- Vancouver climber Dave Way recently went to Cuba. Before he left, he had asked his climbing pals for used gear to donate to the Cubans. (for a Cuban, even if s/he could find one, a rope would cost six months' salary). I got a bunch of gear from people in Canmore but was unable to get to Dave...

Re: Dancing i.t. Light cleaning-- Sunday the 10th.

OK folks. Don Serl and I cleaned this route today, fixed bolts, moved a belay etc. Thanks to Don who did most of the drilling and to Peder Ourom for lending us the drill. We removed one belay (but left one of its bolts) which lengthens one of the pitches and we now have belay-protector bolts on two ...

Dancing i.t. Light cleaning-- Sunday the 10th.

Hey Squamish friction junkies-- In the spirit of Adopt-a-Crag, Don Serl and I are going to scrub and replace bolts on Dancing in the Light this Sunday (10th sept). We will be starting at about 10:00 A.M. so you would probably want to not climb the route that day as you will be going around two guys ...

Barley told me he put it there because he was doing it on lead, and it was the first spot he could get a stance to drill. To me, his comments make sense-- if you can't climb a moderately runout 5.7 which has no tricky moves, you shouldn't be on a 10b route. There are lots of heavily bolted routes in...

Anybody have time during the week to get out? I have a rack, car, 6 years exp. and lots of enthusiasm. Mature & reliable. I prefer long trad routes and I also clip bolts and like the alpine. PM me if interested.
