Re: Occupy The Smoke Bluffs Day

We can all afford nice lives because we white people a) killed 90% of the Natives in north america with diseases, and marginalised the rest, then b) stole their land, and after that, c) began extracting from that land the resources-- timber, oil, NG, water, coal, metals, agricultural products etc-- ...

Re: Best Practices Guide

Some interesting stuff, esp. in light of a few near-misses (on my and others' parts) over the last few years. Most significant is "Anyone performing route development is completely responsible for his/her actions, regardless of the risk mitigation they may have used." More or less in line with liabi...

Stuck rope on Freeway

(I put this in the L&F as well) So...today we did Freeway Lite, and on rapping off the Truck Stop cave/ledge/roof, our tag line got stuck on the chains. If anybody climbs Freeway soon and wanted to bring our rope down, beer and hugs and serious gratitude would be yours. :D If you wanted to climb Fre...

Re: Scary days at the Smoke Bluffs......

I've been first responder at two head-injury accidents. Neither victim wore a helmet; in both cases there would have been little or no injury had helmets been worn; in one case, the guy would have bled to death in literally two minutes had my partner and I not been there. Amazing how much blood come...

Rainfall doesn't cause polish. If anything, it causes weathering, leading to less polish. true. Climb flying circus in late August, throw a couple more letter grades on there. climb it in march, back down to 10a...the rains, plus a bit of freeze&thaw, work wonders. Dru is right-- it's gumbie, gym-t...

seconded.
Defs try "fiddler on the roof" and for shorter stuff, the fox, and red zinger.

Until we get the traffic out here it's going to be a problem. Some "SQUAMISH" climbers who visited Harrison were pretty impressed and said they were glad to be climbing in our neighborhood where there were no line ups..... It's only going to get better because there are quite a few more people show...
