any good mixed climbs: sea-to-sky area?

Post by effie » Thu Sep 30, 2010 8:15 pm

wondering if anyone has some good beta for any mixed or dry-tooling nearby-so far i've heard about husume buttress up by whistler.... if anyones ever been up there i'd love to hear about it!

nothing too gnar.... m5-m7, or so.

i know it's a little early but i'm starting to think about my tools.

i hear exasperator takes a good pick.... hah.

Be careful joking about stuff like that. I know someone who caught a couple of lads from Seattle drytooling (crampons too!) Exasperator on a wet winter day about ten years ago. They essentially told her to piss off when she called them on their boneheaded adventure. She proceeded to grab their rope and pull the leader off! Following that, a thorough tongue lashing sent them scurrying home.

something to do in the rain
white blotter looked pretty mixed last year...the top was fat and the bottom was non existent. I was across the valley doing that long WI4, can't remember the name-- plum?

Get on the back of the Cac boulder where the holds are drilled. I dont think it would be a good idea to dry tool on a established climb as you may get lynched.
When in doubt....run it out!!!!
