Re: January conditions?

Peering out my kitchen window, I can see the smoke bluffs and all I see is wet cold miserable rock. We've had nothing but rain for about a solid week. The nearest thing to a climber you'll find in the smoke bluffs are those misguided diggers. Dangling from drenched ropes, elbows deep in the mud, the...

Re: The Little Smoke Bluffs

Saw a group of diggers hard at work at Cabin Boy Office Crag today (area between Krack Rock and Zombie Roof) in case you're wondering.

Re: Planning to do Diedre on Tuesday, Dec. 13 - BAD IDEA???

If it's not dumping snow on Tuesday calculus crack is a better option, it's dry and unlike Diedre you're not going to have any traversing iced up slabs to contend with. Also, I've been spending a lot of time in the Bullet heads lately and cream of white mice would be a good option as well.

Re: Photophobia 5.10 5 p on Slhanay (Squaw)

Did this route the other day, an excellent addition to the area and will be deservingly popular in years to come. I'd like to offer the following beta for anyone considering the climb. The grades are as follows, P1.10c, P2 5.9, P3 10d, P4 10a, P5 10a.

Re: Calling out the Hacks.

IMO The least cool thing of all is to generalize an activity & anyone who participates in it based on one experience or individual as was done by the OP "In short, when idiots go soloing they endanger us all. Now I’m not writing this to bash on all people to chose to solo, I’m writing this to encou...

Climbed it earlier this month. IMO. Best route for its grade in Squamish! Hands down.

Calling out the Hacks.

So I’m enjoying an afternoon of climbing in the Smoke Bluffs with my friend who’s visiting out of town. We’re at the Smoke Bluff Wall and had just finished getting off Mosquito and had moved on to Sphinxter Quits. While my friend climbs and I belay, a young man approaches the crag says hello and sta...
