Re: Easy 5.10?

Did Split Decision and felt it was okay with just 1-2 moves that were interesting for the grade I didn't do hairpin because I don't feel up for the 10a slab pitch Any other suggestions? I'm definitely not a 10a leader, but I don't know when I will be either... I added the 1st pitch of exasperator to...

Re: Easy 5.10?

Yes to clarify I meant trad. I will check out those ones mentioned.
Any further that are a notch above the ones already listed?
Thanks!

Easy 5.10?

I'm looking for some suggestions in Squamish for easy 5.10a/b climbs to help break my mental barrier and climb a bit harder. I found Nubile Woman in the bluffs read "10a, soft for the grade". The Zip I found hard, maybe because it's more vertical...

What are some other suggestions?

Re: jungle warfare anchors

I thought the Great Drain was harder over all, but more satisfying, too. Jungle Warfare is really a one pitch (almost a one move) wonder, whereas the Great Drain has several challenging and thought-provoking pitches. Thanks! The 10b pitch sounds interesting - kind of offwidth/squeeze, kind of layback

Re: Escape Velocity, 5.9, Mt. Habrich

Climbed it yesterday (July 29) and is in great condition. Easy fun intro to some Alpine near the big city. All station's bolted. Short pitches, so keep an eye out for the stations. All good. Nothing bad to say about it. Great route for beginners or for taking out your less experienced buddies and/o...

Dru@Work wrote:If looking for a fun trad route without the crowds of Life on Earth, "The Nose" 5.9 stays right of LoE all the way to the summit, traversing diagonally right on ledges near the top. It's a pretty good route that deserves way more traffic than it gets.
Is there a topo or route overlay?

Re: Sky Pilot - Ascent time from Gondola and Conditions

Seems to be mixed comments whether bringing a rope for the rappel is necessary
Last time I went it was blue bird skies and then the clouds came in and it poured rain :shock:
