Re: multipitch after a days sunshine?

Deidre was still a little wet today. Banana peel was dry. Calculus looked dry. Ultimate everything was climbable with a few wet spots and I saw a group topping out the Buttress.

Have fun!

Re: Climb On

Saw Dan a couple days ago. He's aiming to be open mid-March. Likely in another location downtown.

Re: Examination Of Time and Munitions Plant in the North Gul

what about that next corner left of Examination? The corner to the left is completely hollow on the left side. It would be another great line but it needs way too much scaling to make it safe and would likely end up looking like s**t. The rock on the rest of the wall is mostly no good but there are...

Forgot to thank Mike Chapman AKA Squamishphoto for the shot. Check out his photostream on Flickr for more shots of these routes (http://www.flickr.com/photos/squamishphoto/page23/) and tonnes of amazing shots of Squamish.

The Parallax View and 50ft Quiche On the Truckstop roof.

These can be found on the Truckstop roof of Freeway, right of the original roof pitch. Start either pitch from the new belay chains 10ft right of the crappy Freeway belay.

Examination Of Time and Munitions Plant in the North Gully

Did these routes a while back but never got around to a topo. These routes can be found at the top of the North Gully, second peak side, northern most section of the wall. Both routes have bolted anchors top and bottom and are entirely gear protected. Best to rap Munitions Plant. Put a couple pieces...

Re: Milk Road/Run - traverse question AND dry?

Should be all dry. Give the second a cordalette to lower off a bolt hanger (if needed) for the 11c(A0) traverse. An extra bolt was added recently to this pitch to make it easier to aid/second.
