A dirtbaggers video postcard of Squamish

Post by squamish climber » Thu Aug 23, 2012 11:09 am

A nicely produced video by Barn Door flicks shows a great slice of a summer in Squamish. The guy was originally planning to only stay a week but a car break down led to some fortuitous encounters with other climbers who became friends and a week turned into a month.

The video captures the climbing, slacklining and the common sight of being on the injury reserve list with crutches.

Watch: Getting out of Squampton (Vimeo not iphone or ipad compatible)


Anybody run into this crew?

Wow, how on Earth did that chick fall off that JUG on Rainy Day Dream Away? It’s so big.

Haha, that's so funny. I met these guys that day they filmed in the Magic Carpet Ride boulders. I had no idea they made this. Fun people. I even made it into the video!

PM me for autographs...

Farkin Aussies....

Oli and Dan are bros from wayback...Krisha, Alon and Gabe are totally rad too, go say hello to them behind the rock fall at the Squaw car park.

I thought that was you Relic!

Funny story....so Alon has been camping at the rockfall for months and put his site up on couchsurfing.com....as a joke. It's just a few tents and some bits of wood for a couch. Anyway, he started getting replies and people started dropping in! It's couchsurfing in the purest form; great company....and fat joints.
