Re: SVMF impact on climbers?

No it wasn't inaccessible. I climbed in the Bluffs on Sunday, parked in the normal parking lot unimpeded. Can you imagine the outcry if they closed the busiest climbing area in the province (country?) just so people could listen to Macklemore?

Oh, and Logger's Lane wasn't closed.

Re: Hanging Gardens at the Papoose

Got on this yesterday. Great route, great contribution to the area. Needs more traffic though, it's starting to fill up with pine needles and associated gunk. There's a large looming tree that leans out above you as you look up from the base of the route that's the culprit (chainsaw?). The combinati...

Re: Where are people climbing this weekend?

Thinking of checking out Valley of Shaddhai, Solarium and/or Lower Malemute.








If it stops raining.

Re: Cleanup of Boulder Gully?

It's Hevy Duty. I ran into him drilling new bolt holes on the Turbocharger wall when I got my a$% handed to me by Talking Holds in the late Summer, told me he had a vision for a nice shady crag in the Bluffs for those hot hot days in the middle of the Summer.

Kind of silly how much logistics went into this shot. So awesome.

Re: Let's wake up the forum: 2013 climbing goals

Damn, Luke. Those days in Murrin are going to keep you honest. Never looked at Astrologger before, that route looks crazy. Good luck, but even if you lose you still share some brews and tokes with a friend.

So...what's the deal with Mercy Street?

10b? Is there anyone who's climbed it that thinks this is an honest grade? (This is not a rhetorical question.) I know 10b is an unusually stiff grade for some reason, what with Apron Strings, Split Pillar, Split Beaver, etc, but Mercy Street looks like the climb you'd make if you tried to turn the ...

Ha. Thought i might wait until we start getting highs on the warm side of zero before climbing in the shade. Definitely hitting something sunny next weekend though.

Days are getting longer, sunnier. What's on your ticklist? Multipitch: The Grand: This will be my eighth climbing summer. Time to get real.

Re: moderate route developers dream post!

I went to go check this place out a week ago. There is a wall, but none of us noticed any "holy sh*t" lines that I imagine you'd want if you're going to convince people to hike for 25 minutes uphill in a place like Squish where we're spoiled for classics ten minutes from the car. If this crag was in...

Lost: Keys between Flying Circus and Corn Flakes

I think I may have left them on a little ledge at head level jest to the left of the start of Flying Circus. They have my bike key on them and I don't have a spare, would really like to get them back if possible. If anybody has them please pm me.
