Topic: New routes at Horne Lake... what are they?
Replies: 16

I find it hard to believe that a website dedicated to climbing on Vancouver Island is promoting/advertising new route development at Horne Lake which is technically still closed. For a people whose local climbing area would be Horne Lake, they sure do not seem to be taking steps to ensure that the a...

Charlie let remind you that the grades that made the guidebook did not have the consensus of many people. It may have also been influenced by a phenomenon call "group-think." Either way, they should not be the end-all-and-be-all for how hard that people ought to think they are. So, I'm not downgradi...

Hey all, the Forgotten Wall has been up for awhile now and lots of people have had a chance to climb the routes. I just wanted to know what people think of the grades. Are they accurate? I know that the suggested grades that are currently used in the latest guidebook were given in haste because of t...

Philosopher John Locke proposed the Tragedy of the Commons in that (and this will be a very brief and crude description) if one puts his/her labour to something, that adds value to it and thus confers ownership. His exa...

Changing a route name

What do you'all think about a route equipper changing the name of a route that he established 2 yrs ago? Its not in any guidebook.

I agree. The roof is the easier section. At the lip there it was looking like he wasn't/couldn't use some of the good footholds to get into dropknee.

Closely bolted
