Olympics: Know anybody coming to also climb (OT sort of)

Post by squamish climber » Fri Feb 12, 2010 11:35 am

Just wondering if anybody has met some Olympic visitors who also plan on doing some climbing in Squamish (if it dries out). I imagine there will be some people who gaze at the Chief on the way to Whistler and put that on their list to do. I read somewhere that US Alpine Skier, Tommy Ford from Bend, OR is a climber. Anybody know of others?

I guess access to Squamish is an issue with Sea to Sky closures.

The checkpoint is after Squamish and only in affect for north bound travel between 6am and 6pm.

Right, thanks for the correction.

I drove up to Whistler on Friday and came down Sunday -- have to say the traffic was light both ways. What do people think about the middle lane divider markers? Feels like your driving in a construction zone if you ask me. I thought driving on the rail bed was kind of cool though.
