Is there any way to contact these fellows to thank them for their hard work?

We climbed at this crag last weekend and we were blown away. The location is gorgeous, the routes and well-bolted and trail is easy to find and follow. But what really impressed us were the little details: maps and topos available throughout the area, for instance, really help situate newcomers to this area.

Fantastic.

Some of the routes are a bit contrived, perhaps, given that it seems like the developers probably had to rip most of the outer layer of rock off with pry bars... It's a loose area in general. For example, on climb #22 "Allemange Right", there is a sizeable pillar of rock actually bolted to the cliff. It's bolted with a chain anchor and attached right to the cliff. And you clip it, and climb it. We couldn't believe it, but we climbed it anyways...

Still, all that being said, both times I went out there I had a really good time. It's cool to have a new area to help relieve some of the increasing "crag pressure" in Squamish.

One thing has been bugging me, however...

What's up with Rocky Horror? The developers rate it higher than any other climb there, so my friend and I decided to give it a try. This was early last summer. We are both pretty OK sport climbers at that grade (10a), and it was fun at first, but we both got shut down about halfway up and ended up bailing off the route. It was like a bolt was missing or something, and you could either go up a chossy unprotected groove to the left, or pull a pretty hard (like V2 or something) unprotected boulder problem to the right. Definitely more :( than :D

Interesting.

I admit that we only climbed half a dozen routes and those were in the easiest sector of the crag ... so I didn't see the things that you describe.

Now I want to go back to see this pillar you mentioned .. that's bizarre!

It is great to have a new area, as you say, to relieve "crag pressure" and the location can't be beat.

Fiberglass is the most widely used form of insulation in homes today. In part because it is relatively easy to install and in part because it’s very affordable.

It's a Great Information. Most homeowners are great about cleaning and taking care of the inside of their homes but seem to neglect the outside! https://stocktonpressurewashing.com/
