When will the rain end

Post by meingh » Wed Mar 21, 2007 8:45 pm

Usually at this point in the year I have at least 15 - 20 days logged in Squamish, but this year i have 2!!!! What's going on with the weather? Is anyone else feeling my pain or do you all have more flexible schedules to take advantage of the 4 hour dry windows??

i feel your pain meingh, there's only so much more of this i can take. anyone who's been climbing with me lately knows this though. i'm definitely edgy and the plastic is going to my head.

this morning i was climbing until my alarm clock interupted. i almost shed a tear.

ya this weather F%$#$&^ blows! The last few years there's been a high pressure in February and then some decent weather in March as well. Been doing a bit of aiding but more stoked to get some free climbing in...... any day now.

I am dying for rock ... dying ... its been so long I think I'll have to be projecting 5.4's. At least it will be climbing.

Let me know when the floodwaters lap gently against Eleven Bolt Rock, so that I can paddle over and send a floating sit-start or two out of my kayak.

the bluffs were pretty dry yesterday. The north apron looked to be drying fast too, those lucky sods with weekdays off might even get some multipitch in before the next wave of rain.

hit cutting edge area early this am, before going to work in squish. Rock was dry but god is it hard to concentrate when their falling all of these big trees across the road as part of the highway expantion. Something just wasnt settled in the universe.

Anybody know if Shots Fired is going to be saved, it looks like its doomed.
GO BIG OR GO HOME
