Re: Sky Pilot - Ascent time from Gondola and Conditions

Does anyone have any pictures of the crux slabs, and where the rappel stations are?

TR Solo friendly areas

Hey all I haven't been to Squamish in a couple years, but I was hoping some people could suggest some trad: crags that are TR solo friendly where I won't get in the way of the crowds or piss people off also have decent climbs that are worth repeating a few times to dial in my technique to maximum ti...

Re: Tee-nuts and climbing holds

Regarding the holds, I would prefer to get them sooner than later which is also why I would want to avoid US shipping and setting up a PO box (I am carless at the moment)

Cheers

Tee-nuts and climbing holds

Does anyone know where I can source tee-nuts inexpensively in the Vancouver area? MEC has them for $24 for 100 count.
Any place cheaper?

Where can I source cheap climbing holds without shipping ($$$) from the US?

Thanks!

Climbed this in June sometime and thought it was great (I'm a 5.9 climber). The elephant steps were very memorable! I would recommend the route just to climb in these steps!

Can't edit my original post, but some routes I have been thinking about are:
The Zip 5.10a
Flying Circus 5.10a (though looks super polished!)
Pauls Crack 5.10a (how is the gear off the ground? I remember it being thin to start)
Jabberwocky 5.10a/b
Arrowroot 5.10b

Thanks

well protected 5.10- route suggestion

I am looking at trying some 5.10- single pitch climbs before I leave squamish and was hoping to get some suggestions from some people that know squamish well. I would prefer routes that are well protected and are crack climbs. I can comfortably lead 5.9 but haven't tried more than 1 or 2 5.10a route...

Does the new walk off descend climbers right or left? I took the old cave descent down from Jungle...

Re: diagonal crack on easter island

does anyone know the name of the diagonal crack between easter island and out to lunge i thought it was a 5.8 but someone said it was a 5.9 ... which seems fair since it's a tad pumpy thanks guys! I heard it was a 5.9 also, and would agree on the rating cause it's a bit pumpy. Would also like to kn...
