Re: Retro Scrub - The Ghost

Hi Brendan, The Ghost is harder than the Oracle. The Oracle has two cruxes, one low down so your still fresh and one mid height with a rest before. The Ghost has three cruxes with one right at the end. Both are great lines but Oracle is an easier on-sight. Bunny Foo Foo (The direct version, from the...

Retro Scrub - The Ghost

I recently gave "The Ghost" at Pet Wall a scrub as it had grown a thick black cloak! I also upgraded the anchors with chains. It is one of the best single pitch gear lines in Squamish...please enjoy.

Re: Alpine rock in North Joffre creek

Hey Bruce, The snow had melted back from the ridge and the going was basically 5.0/4th class! No Boots or Axe. I climbed part way on the Central Pillar of Joffre a few years ago, the route to the right of the Flavelle/lane but turned around as the rock was really poor/we had a whole ledge collapse o...

Re: Alpine rock in North Joffre creek

Hi Bruce, I climbed your route yesterday. We did the direct start - 10d, clean and good pro or bolts. We climbed the entire line clean/onsight including the ridge at the top. I wanted to see how it connected to other peaks back there. Its a long day from Squamish and back but worth it. Thanks for es...

Infinite Decibels, retro scrubbed.

Hi, I recently cleaned up Infinite Decibels at Murrin Park. (5.12c- sport), Directly across from the parking lot next to Vultures Circling. Be warned it is stiff for the grade, Feels the same as Vultures! I also cleaned up the base so all the bushes and trees are gone, It should be a comfy spot to f...

Re: Wall of Attrition ??

The first three pitches are okay and the grade is right...but after the long corner the rest is not worth climbing, loose, dirty and the last pitch to bellygood is poorly protected. I have climbed it but would not climb it again. There are 1000's of better routes. If you really want to climb it take...
